Electrical Engineering Technology

Graduates of this program are able to work in any number of challenging positions. As engineering technicians, they may participate in such varied activities as research, development, design, production, or manufacturing of complex electrical, electronic, or electromechanical products. Testing, quality control, marketing, installation, and customer service are among the job opportunities available. 

Students may also pursue a dual major with Computer Engineering Technology or Mechanical Engineering Technology. Upon completion of a two-year associate degree in Electrical Engineering Technology, students may pursue a bachelorís degree in Electrical Engineering, Electromechanical Engineering, Sustainable Design & Technology, or Business Technology & Management. 

The Associate of Engineering in Electrical Engineering Technology program will:
  • Provide students with the capabilities to be immediately employable and productive in the workplace
  • Provide the education so that graduates are knowledgeable in both theory and application
  • Instill the necessary skills so that graduates are qualified for positions of responsibility
  • Provide the base of knowledge so that graduates are prepared for lifelong learning and can adapt to new and emerging technologies
  • Provide the base of knowledge so that graduates can continue their formal education
Students with an Associate of Engineering in Electrical Engineering Technology should be able to demonstrate:
  • The ability to apply the knowledge, techniques, skills, and modern tools of electrical engineering technology to narrowly defined engineering technology activities
  • The ability to apply a knowledge of mathematics, science, engineering, and technology to electrical engineering technology problems that require limited application of principles but extensive practical knowledge
  • The ability to conduct standard tests and measurements and to conduct, analyze, and interpret experiments related to electrical engineering technology
  • The ability to function effectively as a member of a technical team
  • The ability to identify, analyze, and solve narrowly-defined engineering technology problems
  • The ability to apply written, oral, and graphical communication in both technical and non-technical environments, and an ability to identify and use appropriate technical literature
  • An understanding of the need for and ability to engage in self-directed continuing professional development
  • An understanding of and a commitment to address professional and ethical responsibilities including a respect for diversity
  • A commitment to quality, timeliness, and continuous improvement
The program is accredited by the Engineering Technology Accreditation Commission of the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology.

The normal number of credits required for the degree is 71.
