A full schedule of evening and weekend classes gives our students in the electrical engineering technology program the ability to earn a four-year degree while working full time during the day. We have a long history of educating part-time working students and offering them additional resources and assistance.
Students in the electrical engineering technology program gain a solid theoretical foundation of mathematics and science as the basis for their study of required technical courses in electric circuits, electronics, electrical power and digital and microprocessor systems.
Most of the science and technology courses, including nearly all of the courses in the major, comprise both a lecture and a laboratory component. Extensive hands-on experience in laboratories equipped to industry standards ensures that graduates of the program are intimately familiar with current technical practices and are able to apply theory to real-world situations.
A series of advanced technical elective courses allows upper-level students to specialize in one or more of the following areas:
- Electrical power
- Digital electronics and microprocessors
- Control systems
Electrical Engineering Technology Internship Opportunities
Internships, which may carry University credit, are available with local companies for students who wish to obtain work experience during their studies. During their time in the electrical engineering technology program, students have interned for organizations such as:
