Electrical Engineering Technology, BSET

Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Majors, minors, certificates

A Bachelor of Science in Engineering Technology with a major in electrical engineering technology is an applied degree for a career in engineering featuring a digital technology backbone starting on your first semester with Intro to Electronics that includes a 3-hour weekly laboratory experience where you build an electronic device. Expand your Senior-Year Capstone project and consider the Grad-Track option to earn the BSET and MSET in 5 years.  

The electrical engineering technology major is designed to develop the technical knowledge and skills necessary to compete successfully in today’s industries that use digital technology, embedded systems, communications, and controls. The program builds on a strong foundation in mathematics, science, and engineering that includes courses in Electronic Devices, Digital Logic, Microprocessors, PLC, and Embedded Digital Systems.  Junior and Senior courses advance your knowledge into Power, Communications, and Controls. Computer utilization is an integral part of all electrical engineering technology courses and most courses include a laboratory to provide the necessary hands-on experience for an applied program of study. The development of technical communication and presentation skills is a requirement throughout the curriculum.

Electrical engineering technology is accredited by the Engineering Technology Accreditation Commission of ABET (, (111 Market Place, Suite 1050, Baltimore, MD 21202; 410-347-7700).

Degree requirements

The following requirements must be satisfied for a Bachelor of Science in Engineering Technology with a major in electrical engineering technology.

Hours required and general/college requirements

A minimum of 120 semester hours, of which 36 must be advanced, and fulfillment of degree requirements for the Bachelor of Science degree as specified in the “University Core Curriculum ” in the Academics section of this catalog and the College of Engineering  requirements.

Other course requirements

Students registering for fall or spring term/semester must register for mathematics until the requirement has been satisfied, unless approved by the department chair.




Hours required for electives may vary based on course selection and the University Core Curriculum requirements. Electives may be required to satisfy the advanced hour requirement (42) and/or the minimum total hours required for the degree. For specific information see an academic advisor in the College of Engineering.

Other requirements

  • A grade of C or better is required for all major courses and elective courses counting toward the major.
  • Courses taken to satisfy the technical options in each major must be approved by the academic advisor.

ELET foundation courses include ENGR 1030 ENGR 2720 /ENGR 2730 ELET 2740 MATH 1710  and TECM 2700 . Satisfactory completion of ELET foundation courses with a minimum GPA of 2.5 is prerequisite to taking advanced courses in the major. Mandatory advisement is required each semester until the foundation courses have been successfully completed.
