Electrical Engineering Technology BS
The bachelor of science degree 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 the program. Professional electives include courses 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 program provides a viable option for students who have completed their associate degree and wish to continue their education in engineering technology.
The degree is a five-year program that requires approximately 15 months of cooperative education experience for full-time students. Students may begin their co-op experiences in the third year. Co-ops may be completed during the academic year and during the summer. A co-op adviser is assigned to each student to assist them in identifying and applying to opportunities.
The electrical engineering technology program is accredited by the Technology Accreditation Commission of ABET, http://www.abet.org.
