Electrical Engineering Technology

Mechanical Engineering & Engineering Technology

Program Educational Objectives

Graduates of the Electrical Engineering Technology Program will be:

  • Practical, highly qualified engineering technologists.
  • Employed in professional careers where they will solve problems using technical and hands-on skills developed during their studies.
  • Able to apply their knowledge in the design, manufacture, sales, installation, operation and/or maintenance of complex, high-value systems.
  • Socially and professionally responsible, possessing skills for life-long learning.

The EET program offers two emphases: Power Systems and Electronic Systems.

The program utilizes input from employers, alumni, and an industry advisory board to continuously improve the quality of education.

Accreditation: The EET program is accredited by the Engineering Technology Accreditation Commission of ABET (ETAC/ABET), http://www.abet.org.
