BS in Electrical Engineering Technology

Electrical Engineering Technology prepares graduates to enter the technical workforce in a variety of fields. Electrical Engineering Technology graduates are typically involved in areas such as: development, design, quality assurance, technical documentation, production, maintenance, test, field service, or technical sales.

Students are required to take one project-based capstone course as part of their 13 hours of electives. Contact the department to obtain a list of acceptable project-based capstone courses. Any non-required upper division (3XXX/4XXX) ECET course, with the exception of ECET 3000, may be used for the remainder of their EET electives. Students may also choose one department approved course from outside their major to count as an EET elective.

  • Program educational objectives are broad statements that describe career and professional accomplishments that the program prepares graduates to achieve during the first few years following graduation. Graduates of electrical engineering technology will:

    1. Possess an appropriate knowledge of the fundamentals of electrical engineering technology, mathematics, science and technologies in order to adapt to rapidly changing technologies.
    2. Function and communicate effectively, both individually and within team, demonstrating ethical, respectful and professional behavior in all environments and associations.
    3. Apply creativity in design, testing and maintenance of electrical engineering technology systems, and think critically to identify, evaluate and solve complex technical and non-technical problems.
    4. Recognize the need for a commitment to pursue continuous self-improvement and lifelong learning.
    5. Be cognizant of contemporary professional, societal and global issues and be aware of and respect diverse cultures.
    6. Obtain and maintain a meaningful employment in their respective disciplines and attain increasing levels of responsibility and leadership in chosen career fields.
  • Student outcomes describe the knowledge and skills acquired by students who complete the program. Students completing the electrical engineering technology program will be able to:

    1. Demonstrate an appropriate knowledge of fundamentals of electrical engineering technology, mathematics, and science.
    2. Demonstrate an appropriate mastery of knowledge, techniques, skills and modern tools of the technical components of the curriculum.
    3. Use appropriate tools and laboratory equipment to acquire data, conduct experimental measurements, analyze data, and interpret the results.
    4. Demonstrate the ability to think critically and generate creative and realistic solutions to defined problems and projects appropriate to electrical engineering technology.
    5. Produce written documents; deliver oral presentations, prepare and interpret visual information.
    6. Function effectively on teams.
    7. Recognize the value of diversity, and identify ethical and social issues in business and technical tasks.
    8. Demonstrate a commitment to quality, timeliness, and continuous improvement with the ability to engage in self-directed continuing professional development.
