BS in Electrical Engineering Technology
The bachelor of science major in electrical engineering technology provides students with a foundation in circuits, analog and digital electronics, physics, calculus, and the liberal arts. The third and fourth years expand on the fundamental courses with more advanced course work in applied differential equations, advanced circuits and electronics, transform methods, control systems, analog and digital electronics, mechanical engineering technology, and additional liberal arts courses. Students choose free electives or mechanical/manufacturing and professional electives to round out their major. Professional electives include sequences in electric power systems, electronic communications, embedded systems, telecommunications, networking, and optics. Several electives also are available from other technical disciplines, and the student’s academic adviser can assist in determining the best choices for career goals and objectives. The upper division of the major provides a viable option for students who have completed their associate degree and wish to continue their education in engineering technology. The BS in Electrical Engineering Technology major is accredited by the Engineering Technology Accreditation Commission of ABET http://www.abet.org .
