About the Program

Apply Now The mission of the Electrical Engineering Technology program is to provide career educational opportunities to students who have a hands-on aptitude and are oriented towards applications. The program offers courses that emphasize practical aspects of engineering along with abstract concepts and theories. The courses are a blend of the application of engineering knowledge, scientific principles and technical skills used in modern industries. This is accomplished by integrating theory with extensive hands-on laboratory training, mathematics, science, and rounding off with courses in humanities and general education. The program offers academic preparation for careers in embedded computer systems, electrical power and renewable energy, electric mobility, electronics hardware, process controls, and telecommunications. Students will complete a Senior Design Project, which is a one-year capstone individual/team project that provides the opportunity to pursue an idea from conception to design, then execute into a demonstrable project. The program’s goal is to produce graduates who are equipped with marketable skills and potential for growth to meet the technical manpower needs of the society.

The Electrical Engineering Technology Bachelor of Science program is accredited by the Engineering Technology Accreditation Commission of ABET, Inc. http://www.abet.org. This ensures that the program is independently reviewed and meets the quality expectation for that profession.
