Welcome

As you tour our EET website, you will learn about the faculty, facilities, curriculum, and many other aspects of the department. We welcome you to our website.

The EET program area houses of several educational components:

  • The bachelor of science extended major with a choice of three concentrations. 
  • Students wishing to major in EET and minor in another program must seek pre-approval of that minor from an EET department advisor.
  • Two minors, Electrical Engineering Technology Minor, and Network Communications Minor.
  • Three certificates, Electrical Engineering Technology Certificate, Network Communications Certificate, and for those with backgrounds in electrical an Engineering Fundamentals Certificate is also available.

Our Mission

The Electrical Engineering Technology bachelor of science degree program provides each graduate with a comprehensive foundation of technical knowledge in circuit analysis, electronics, digital logic, computers, software, communications, and control systems. The program emphasizes the application of current technology and includes a significant amount of hands-on, laboratory experience. The program also provides its graduates with the knowledge and skills needed to become productive members in their professional careers. The graduates of the degree program are not technicians but are applied engineers sometimes called technologist.

The Bachelor of Science Degree Program

Electrical Engineering Technology (EET) graduates have much of the "know-why" of the engineer and much of the "know-how" of the technician. The EET curriculum combines theory and applications and is designed to prepare graduates for satisfying and meaningful employment in the electrical and electronics industry. The sound theoretical grounding has allowed graduates to earn master's degrees at local universities. The practical curriculum makes the transitions to industrial employment very smooth. The EET bachelor of science degree is a true four-year engineering related degree, rather than a technician level degree with added humanities courses. EET graduates starting salaries are comparable to those of engineering graduates.

The EET curriculum gives a solid foundation in sciences, mathematics, and electric circuits and devices. The theoretical knowledge base consists of two years of mathematical and engineering sciences. Professional skills consist of two years of analytical, experimental, and design methodologies. Design experience is computer integrated. Laboratory experience is an integral part of engineering technology education, so at least six laboratory-integrated courses are offered at the junior and senior levels. The student may specialize in one of three concentrations. Classes are available in Computers, Microprocessors, Communications (including satellite, fiber optics, microwave and laser), Control systems (including robotics), Integrated Circuit technology (including Verilog Hardware Description Language), Telecommunications (including LANs, WANs and wireless communications), and Power (including solar and other renewable energies).
