Electrical Engineering Technology (EET) is a four-year curriculum leading to a Bachelor of Science degree. The curriculum covers most of the same subject areas as the Electrical Engineering program but differs in several significant ways:
- Mathematics requirements are less stringent,
- Laboratory courses are more numerous to provide more extensive hands-on training,
- The study of theoretical subject matter, while comprehensive, is somewhat less rigorous, and
- Design emphasizes practical applications of existing technologies using a systems-integration approach.
Educational Objectives and Student Outcomes
1. Secure professional positions in electrical, electronic or related fields by leveraging their Electrical Engineering Technology skills and knowledge.
2. Receive positive recognition and reward for the productive application of their skills and knowledge.
3. Attain greater professional competence applying principles of continuous learning.
4. Gain personal satisfaction through the exercise of competent, ethical and socially responsible professional practice.
All requirements listed in the General Information section of the University Bulletin apply. In addition, a student majoring in a program in the College of Engineering must have at least a 2.0 grade point average in courses bearing the specific rubric of the major program (e.g., computer science, civil engineering, etc.) when computed on all attempts for which a final grade was received (excluding 'W plus' grades).
In order to graduate from a baccalaureate program in the College of Engineering, a student must complete 27 of the last 36 hours in the curriculum while enrolled in the College of Engineering.
