College of Engineering, Technology, and Architecture

BS in Electronic Engineering Technology

The Electronic Engineering Technology program includes three areas of concentration: controls, microprocessors, and communications (fiber optics, satellite, and telecommunications).

About the Major

bs-electronic-engineering

The program is intended to give first year, transfer, full and part-time, students maximum flexibility in designing their programs while offering well-rounded, professional education for engineering technicians and technologists.

The first two years offer opportunities to prepare students to enter industry as an engineering technician with support responsibilities in such fields as research and development, product installation and maintenance, fabrication, production and testing. The following two years provide the additional technical and general education courses needed for expanded responsibilities and career development in engineering technology.

About the Minor

This minor is intended to ensure minimum baseline knowledge in circuits, electronics, and digital/microprocessors. It is allowed only for students not enrolled in other majors within the Electrical and Computer Engineering department.

Accreditation

The Electrical Engineering Technology program is accredited by ABET - Engineering Technology Accreditation Commission (ETAC).

Program Educational Objectives (PEOs)

Electronic Engineering Technology graduates will develop:

  • a commitment to lifelong learning, quality and continuous improvement through the clear ability to assume increasing levels of technical and/or management responsibility or through participation in professional societies, earning advanced degrees, receiving additional training or certifications;

  • the ability to contribute to engineering teams that design effective and efficient new products, systems and processes;

  • leadership skills while working on teams involved in the analysis, development, implementation, or oversight of electrical and/or hardware systems and processes.

Student Outcomes

Upon the completion of the EET program, the successful graduate will demonstrate:

(a)  an ability to select and apply the knowledge, techniques, skills, and modern tools of the discipline to broadly-defined engineering technology activities;

(b)  an ability to select and apply knowledge of mathematics, science, engineering, and technology to engineering technology problems that require the application of principles and applied procedures or methodologies;

(c)  an ability to conduct standard tests and measurements; to conduct, analyze, and interpret experiments; and to apply experimental results to improve processes;

(d)  an ability to design systems, components, or processes for broadly-defined engineering technology problems appropriate to program educational objectives;

(e)  an ability to function effectively as a member or leader on a technical team;

(f)  an ability to identify, analyze, and solve broadly-defined engineering technology problems;

(g)  an ability to apply written, oral, and graphical communication in both technical and non-technical environments; and an ability to identify and use appropriate technical literature;

(h)  an understanding of the need for and an ability to engage in self-directed continuing professional development;

(i)   an understanding of and a commitment to address professional and ethical responsibilities including a respect for diversity;

(j)   a knowledge of the impact of engineering technology solutions in a societal and global context;

(k)  a commitment to quality, timeliness, and continuous improvement;

(PSC-1) the ability to analyze, design, and implement control systems, instrumentation systems, communications systems, computer systems, or power systems;

(PSC-2) the ability to apply project management techniques to electrical/electronic(s) systems; and

(PSC-3) the ability to utilize statistics/probability, transform methods, discrete mathematics, or applied differential equations in support of electrical/electronic(s) systems.
