Why Choose Electrical/Electronics Engineering Technology?

Electronics, automation, and computers are the lifeblood of today's high tech societies. The Bachelor of Science in Electrical/Electronics Engineering Technology (BS EEET) program graduates professionals that develop, design, apply, manage, and direct the future of these technologies.

Graduates are prepared for careers in Industrial Automation and Controls, Digital and Embedded Systems Design, Instrumentation, Programming, or Control Networks. Our graduates often obtain positions with titles such as Control System Integrator, Controls Engineer, Product Designer, Embedded Systems Developer, Control and Network Specialist, Technical Sales Specialist, and Electrical/Electronics Product Specialist.

The Bachelor of Science in Electrical/Electronics Engineering Technology is accredited by the Engineering Technology Accreditation Commission of the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ETAC-ABET) since 1993. The next accreditation review is scheduled for 2022.  http://www.ABET.org

Career Opportunities

The BS EET program is known for its quality and responsiveness to industry. In addition to a solid foundation in electronic concepts, students learn the most current and relevant topics for today's advanced technologies. Real-world theory and applications are emphasized throughout the program and theory is balanced with extensive hands-on experience. Program courses include topics in digital/microprocessors, control automation, industrial networking, and motion control. Recognizing the diverse career paths our graduates may enter, course selection can be customized by each student. Opportunities are also provided to gain valuable experience through summer internships, senior design projects, and professional organizations.

Most students in the BS EEET program ladder in from the Associate in Applied Science Industrial Electronics Technology (AAS IET) and complete in two years. However, students who have successfully completed an equivalent Associate's degree from another institution can also usually complete the BS EEET in two years.

The Bachelor of Science in Electronics Engineering Technology boasts a history of excellent placement, high starting salaries, and graduates enjoying very successful careers. The program has strong support from several corporations influential in these fields and is accredited through the Engineering Technology Accreditation Commission of the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ETAC-ABET) from 1993 to present.  The next accreditation review is scheduled for 2022.  http://www.ABET.org
