Bachelor of Science in electrical/electronic engineering technology

The bachelor's degree in electrical/electronic engineering technology (BSEET) prepares students for diverse and dynamic careers in industry. Electrical/electronic engineering technologists use the principals of science and math to solve problems in industry and business, both in the public and privatize sectors. They work alongside engineers, independently, as well as in a supervisory capacity. This field is in touch with a wide and growing range of applications of technology, and therefore has many applications in today's workforce.

Our program

The BSEET program emphasizes hands-on laboratory experiences, and courses stress the practical application of mathematics, science, and engineering to solve real world problems.


The Bachelor of Science in electrical/electronic engineering technology program is accredited by the Engineering Technology Accreditation Commission of ABET,, under the commission's General Criteria and Program Criteria for Electrical/Electronic(s) Engineering Technology.

Program educational objectives:

Program educational objectives are broad statements that describe what graduates are expected to attain within a few years after graduation. Program educational objectives are based on the needs of the program's constituencies.

PEO-1 To produce graduates who attain gainful employment and practice successfully in electrical or electronic related engineering technology professions;

PEO-2 To produce graduates who remain technically current and adapt to rapidly changing technologies through continuous learning and self-improvement;

PEO-3 To produce graduates who demonstrate independent thinking and function effectively in teams to solve open-ended problems in a professional environment;

PEO-4 To produce graduates who communicate effectively and perform ethically and professionally in business, industry, and society.

Student outcomes

Student outcomes describe what students are expected to know and be able to do by the time of graduation. These relate to the knowledge, skills, and behaviors that students acquire as they progress through the program.

Student outcomes for the EET program are:

  1. an ability to apply knowledge, techniques, skills and modern tools of mathematics, science, engineering, and technology to solve broadly-defined engineering problems appropriate to the discipline;
  2. an ability to design systems, components, or processes meeting specified needs for broadly-defined engineering problems appropriate to the discipline;
  3. an ability to apply written, oral, and graphical communication in broadly-defined technical and non-technical environments; and an ability to identify and use appropriate technical literature;
  4. an ability to conduct standard tests, measurements, and experiments and to analyze and interpret the results to improve processes; and
  5. an ability to function effectively as a member as well as a leader on technical teams.

Course sequence

Each program has a course sequence or a proper order in which to take classes. It is important that students take their classes following the course sequences provided by the department because foundational or prerequisite classes contain information that utilized in the upper level courses.

Since our students are coming from many different community colleges and technical backgrounds they transfer to Wayne State with varying amounts of credits. It is difficult to prescribe a semester-by-semester plan that would fit each individual student's situation, so instead priority lists are used.

Each list contains a group of classes that are required to be completed before registering for classes in the subsequent lists. This helps students progress through the program, while building on their foundational skills.

Priority level 1: Priority level 2: Priority level 3: Terminal courses:
MAT 1800 ET 3430* ET 3450* ET 5870 (Available after level 2)
PHYS 2130+1 CHM 1020 EET 3150 EET 3180 (Available after level 3)
ET 2160 or CSC 1050 PHY 2140+1   EET 3300, EET 3500 (Available after level 3)
EET 2000 ET 3850   EET 4200 (Available after level 3)
EET 2100 ET 3870   EET ELECTIVES (Availability varies)
EET 2720 EET 3100   ET 4999 (Senior Standing (within last two semesters)
All Lower Division Tech (=21) EET 3720    

* Students may feel free to take ET 3430 and 3450 before completing previous levels


  • Students who are found to be "out of order" can be administratively withdrawn from their classes. It is also very important that students get a C- or better in a class that is listed as a prerequisite to another class.
  • Maximum 64 semester credits can be transferred from Community Colleges.
  • Transfer credits are subject to WSU Transfer Student Statute and may be revised.
  • Minimum 30 credits must be earned from WSU including 24 credits from Div. of Engineering Technology
  • WSU General Education Requirement includes: (a) Foundational Competencies for BC, IC, OC, and  (b) Inquiries in QR, CI, CIV, SI, NSI, DEI, GL

All courses required are not on these priority lists. General education and communication courses are omitted from the above list. Students can use the general education and communication classes to help "fill in" or "balance" their schedules, but these are outside of the technical/program of study area. A student should first try to schedule classes on at the priority level they are at, and then opt to take general education classes.

After a tour of the campus and talking to students and faculty, I figured out that electrical engineering technology was the right major for me. It has everything I wanted from electrical engineering with a lot of hands-on aspects I liked from robotics.
