Electrical Engineering Technology is part of the School of Polytechnic. Electrical Engineering Technology (EET) program is a combination of courses in electricity, electronics, computers, mathematics, science, and general academic areas. The program helps students prepare for employment as electrical/electronic or computer technicians,and provides knowledge in fields such as computer electronics, local area networking, industrial electronics, communication electronics, military electronics, automation, electronics servicing, and electrical power. The program prepares students for the application of engineering principles and technological developments for the creation of useful products and process in electrical and electronic systems. Similar to electrical engineering, EET deals with the implementation design, application, installation, manufacturing, operation or maintenance of electrical/electronic(s) systems. Upon completion of the A.S. EET, all credits can be applied to B.S. EET.
Program Educational Objectives:
Upon completion of the Electrical Engineering Technology (A.S.), students will demonstrate an ability to:
- apply knowledge, techniques, skills and modern tools of mathematics, science, engineering, and technology to solve broadly-defined engineering problems appropriate to the discipline;
- design systems, components, or processes meeting specified needs for broadly-defined engineering problems appropriate to the discipline;
- apply written, oral, and graphical communication in broadly-defined technical and non-technical environments; and an ability to identify and use appropriate technical literature;
- conduct standard tests, measurements, and experiments and to analyze and interpret the results to improve processes; and
- function effectively as a member as well as a leader on technical teams.
Student outcomes for the degree are:
an ability to apply knowledge, techniques, skills and modern tools of mathematics, science, engineering, and technology to solve well-defined engineering problems appropriate to the discipline
an ability to design solutions for well-defined technical problems and assist with the engineering design of systems, components, or processes appropriate to the discipline
an ability to apply written, oral, and graphical communication in well-defined technical and non-technical environments; and an ability to identify and use appropriate technical literature
an ability to conduct standard tests, measurements, and experiments and to analyze and interpret the results; and
an ability to function effectively as a member of a technical team.
- POLYTECHNIC programs emphasize practice-based learning via hands-on laboratory applications using state-of-the-art equipment. Some courses are available through online, distance, and hybrid learning, however many incorporate an on-campus laboratory element.
Declaring This Major:
Students interested in declaring Electrical Engineering Technology as their major may do so in one of two ways:
- On their application when they first apply to the university.
- After meeting with a faculty advisor, a change of major can be declared.
Electrical Engineering Technology (A.S.) 2-Year Plan:
- Students must complete all courses in the degree with a grade of C- or better.
- Student Responsibilities: You are responsible for satisfying the graduation requirements specified for your selected program. Thus, it is essential that you develop a thorough understanding of the required courses, academic policies, and procedures governing your academic career. All requests for exceptions to specific requirements must be made in writing and may be granted only by written approval from the appropriate chair.
- Transfer credit limits, see Academic Regulations above.
- General Education and Major courses as listed below.
General Education Requirements: Credits 31
Computer, Electrical & Information Technology Core Technical Courses: Credits 26
Supporting Courses: Credits 3
Additional Course Use
- CHM 11100 required, CHM 11500 accepted
- PHYS 21800 or 22000 required, PHYS 15200 accepted
- EPET 10200 and ECET 152 required, ECE 20100 + ECE 20200 + ECE 20700 accepted
You are responsible for ensuring that you satisfy all graduation requirements specified for each selected program. Thus, it is essential that you develop a thorough understanding of the required courses, academic policies, and procedures governing your academic career. If you cannot complete all program requirements by your stated graduation date but fail to remove those from your plan of study, the Registrar’s Office in consultation with your academic advisor will remove unmet pursuits from your plan of study. Changing curricular records during the graduation term of application may affect state or federal financial aid awards. All requests for exceptions to specific requirements must be made in writing and may be granted only by written approval from the appropriate chair or dean.
