This degree is only available in the College of Professional Studies.
The Associates in Electrical Engineering Technology program prepares graduates for a successful career as an electrical, electronic, or engineering technician. Studies in mathematics and science are coupled with courses focusing on the analysis, building, and testing of circuits; areas of focus include analog and digital circuits, microprocessors, electrical machines, and electronic instrumentation. Students in the program engage with these focus areas in classes and in laboratory settings, which provide them with both theoretical knowledge and the hands-on application of that knowledge. This approach enables graduates to work in a variety of careers including the testing of electrical systems, maintenance of electrical systems, support of manufacturing processes, and installation of electrical systems.
Program Educational Objectives
Upon completion of the Associate of Science in Electrical Engineering Technology students will:
1. Demonstrate the scientific, engineering, and technical skill necessary to pursue a career as an electrical, electronic, or engineering technician.
2. To effectively use critical thinking and problem-solving skills, scientific and engineering knowledge, and methods for application in industry.
3. To be recognized as a valued professional and effective communicator in industries related to electrical engineering and electronic engineering technologies.
4. To practice professionally in a collaborative, team-oriented manner that embraces the multicultural environment of today’s business world.
5. To function as a responsible member of society with willingness to mentor fellow employees and an understanding of the ethical, social, and economic impact of their work.
