Electrical Engineering Technology

Bachelor of Science Degree Offered)

The Electrical Engineering Technology program prepares graduates to enter the technical workforce in a variety of fields. Communications, instrumentation, automation, control systems, power, robotics, computers, and medical electronics are but a few of these fields. Within these 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.

The ECET department has adopted the following Electrical Engineering Technology Program Outcomes:

  • Demonstrate appropriate knowledge of fundamentals of their discipline, mathematics, science and electrical engineering technology.
  • Demonstrate an appropriate mastery of knowledge, techniques, skills and modern tools of the technical components of the curriculum appropriate to their discipline.
  • Use appropriate tools and laboratory equipment to acquire data, conduct experimental measurements, analyze and interpret the results.
  • Demonstrate the ability to think critically and generate creative and realistic solutions to defined problems and projects appropriate to their discipline.
  • Produce written documents; deliver oral presentations, prepare and interpret visual information.
  • Function effectively on teams.
  • Recognize the value of diversity, and identify ethical and social issues in business and technical tasks.
  • Demonstrate a commitment to quality timeliness and continuous improvement.

EET students are required to take one project-based capstone course as part of their 13 hours of EET electives. Contact the ECET Department to obtain a list of acceptable EET project-based capstone courses. Any non-required upper division (3XXX/4XXX) ECET course, with the exception of ECET 3000, ECET 3010 & ECET 4830, may be used for the remainder of their EET electives. Students may also choose one course from outside the major to count as an EET elective. Contact the ECET Department to obtain a list of acceptable courses from outside the major that count as an EET elective.
