TSAP in Electrical Engineering Technology (B.S.)

We are excited that you are pursuing a Bachelor of Science with a major in Electrical Engineering Technology.  You have taken an important step in this process by completing your TSAP Associate degree in Electrical Engineering Technology. We are ready to help you start this leg of your journey.  The Purdue Fort Wayne TSAP program, which can be completed in a combination of on-campus and on-line courses, is designed with you, the learner, in mind. 

The Electrical Engineering Technology Program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, www.abet.org.

At the time you are admitted to the B.S. program, you will declare your major with the School of Polytechnic.

Program Requirements

  1. Completion of the TSAP A.S. degree is required for admission to the TSAP B.S. degree.
  2. No courses beyond the requirements for TSAP A.S. degree are required for admission to the B.S. program.
