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.
Possible applications for a BSEET degree include:

  • The automotive industry
  • Business machines/professional and scientific equipment
  • Computers and electronics
  • Defense
  • Electronic utilities

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.

BS-EET program educational objectives:

The below B.S.-EET educational objectives describe the expected accomplishments of the B.S.-EET graduates during their first few years after graduation. 

The main objective of the B.S. in the Electrical/Electronic Engineering Technology Program is to provide an outstanding curriculum and learning environment so that, following completion of the program, B.S.-EET graduates will be able to:

  • attain gainful employment and practice successfully in an electrical or electronic related engineering technology profession;
  • remain technically current and adapt to rapidly changing technologies through continuous learning and self-improvement;
  • demonstrate independent thinking and function effectively in teams to solve open-ended problems in an industrial environment;
  • communicate effectively and perform ethically and professionally in business, industry and society.

Student outcomes

In order to provide a strong foundation for B.S.-EET graduates to accomplish the educational objectives, the Division of Engineering Technology has established the following student outcomes, which describe the competencies that B.S.-EET students should possess by the time they graduate:

An ability to select and apply the knowledge, techniques, skills and modern tools of their disciplines to broadly-defined engineering technology activities;

  1. an ability to select and apply the knowledge, techniques, skills, and modern tools of the discipline to broadly defined engineering technology activities;
  2. an ability to select and apply a knowledge of mathematics, science, engineering and technology to engineering technology problems that require the application of principles and applied procedures or methodologies;
  3. an ability to conduct standard tests and measurements, ability to conduct, analyze and interpret experiments, and to apply experimental results to improve processes;
  4. an ability to design systems, components or processes for broadly-defined engineering technology problems appropriate to program educational objectives;
  5. an ability to function effectively as a member or leader on a technical team;
  6. an ability to identify, analyze and solve broadly-defined engineering technology problems;
  7. an ability to communicate effectively regarding broadly-defined engineering technology activities;
  8. an understanding of the need for and an ability to engage in self-directed continuing professional development;
  9. an understanding of and a commitment to address professional and ethical responsibilities including a respect for diversity;
  10. a knowledge of the impact of engineering technology solutions in a societal and global context; and
