Associate and Bachelor of Science Electrical Engineering Technology

A.S. and B.S. Electrical Engineering Technologypdflg

Students will be provided the opportunity to study the design and operational characteristics of electrical circuits, electrical machinery, and electronics equipment. Other subjects studied include electrical drafting, computers, electrical power systems operation and control, and communications. Graduates are qualified for employment in instrumentation, communication systems, and electronics operation. Positions for which graduates qualify may be found with electric utilities, electrical equipment manufacturers, mining companies, manufacturing concerns, and other industries where electrical equipment is utilized or serviced. The associate and baccalaureate degree programs in electrical engineering technology are accredited by the Engineering Technology Accreditation Commission of ABET, http://www.abet.org.

The Electrical Engineering Technology program publishes the following program educational objectives as broad statements describing expected accomplishments of its graduates during the first few years after graduation.

Program Educational Objectives

Associate of Science in Electrical Engineering Technology

  1. Graduates apply circuit analysis and design, computer programming, analog and digital electronics, and electrical machinery principles to install, test, and maintain electrical and electronic systems.
  2. Graduates function on professional teams and communicate with speaking, writing, and graphical skills.
  3. Graduates respect professional, ethical, and social issues as well as a commitment to quality and dependability.
  4. Graduates remain current professionally.

Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering Technology

Baccalaureate degree graduates will demonstrate additional depth and breadth to the program educational objectives stated above. In addition, the following accomplishments are also expected of baccalaureate degree graduates.

  1. Graduates perform analysis, design, and implementation of control systems, microprocessor systems, communication systems, and power systems.
  2. To provide breadth for additional job opportunities, graduates utilize rigorous mathematics applications and productivity software in support of electrical/electronics systems.
  3. Graduates apply project management techniques in product design and development.

The Electrical Engineering Technology program publishes the following program outcomes to describe what students are expected to know and do at the time of graduation. These relate to knowledge, skills, and behaviors that students acquire in the program.
