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 (abet.org), (111 Market Place, Suite 1050, Baltimore, MD 21202; 410-347-7700).
