Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Majors, Minors, Certificates

The electrical engineering technology major is designed to develop the technical and personal knowledge and skill necessary to compete successfully in today’s electrical industries. The program builds on a strong foundation in mathematics and science and includes courses in network analysis, linear electronics, digital electronics, communication systems and control systems. Computer utilization is an integral part of all electrical courses and most courses include a laboratory to provide the necessary hands-on experience for an applied program of study. The student’s technical background is further enhanced by taking selected courses from other engineering technology majors. The development of technical communication and presentation skills is a requirement throughout the curriculum.

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