Electrical Engineering Technology: A.A.S.


Associate in Applied Science

CIP Code: 15.0303


Mission

The mission of the Electrical Engineering Technology Program is to prepare students for careers as engineering technicians with an A.A.S. degree and/or transfer into a Bachelors of Engineering Technology program. The program utilizes small classes to provide quality instruction of the fundamental theoretical concepts of electrical engineering technology as well as extensive hands-on practice of these concepts in a modern laboratory setting. Our faculty are proud to work with employers and four-year colleges to continuously improve the program and maintain ABET accreditation.

Program Learning Outcomes

Graduates with an Associate in Applied Science in Electrical Engineering Technology shall: 

  1. Have the fundamental knowledge and training in electrical engineering technology that is required for professional practice and for undertaking baccalaureate studies. 
  2. Be capable of applying industry standard technology principles across various stages of testing, designing, troubleshooting and maintaining electrical/electronic systems. 
  3. Have the written and oral skills necessary to function effectively in the profession and society. 
  4. Have an appreciation and understanding of current issues in electrical engineering technology and their impact on social and global issues. 
  5. Have an understanding of professional and ethical responsibilities for the complex modern work environment. 
  6. Have the desire and ability to engage in lifelong learning. 
  7. Be effective working individually and in teams.

Electrical Engineering Technology emphasizes the theory and the application of scientific and engineering methods, and prepares the student for immediate employment or for transfer to an upper division school upon graduation.

The graduate is prepared to be the intermediary between the design engineer and the skilled craftsman. EETs translate problems into solutions by building equipment using their knowledge of mathematics, physics, linear and digital electronics, microprocessor hardware and software, machines, robotics, process control, circuit analysis, and computer programming.

This program may require more than two years to complete if an entering student has not completed the admissions requirements for the program. Students lacking any courses may be required to take developmental mathematics courses to prepare for MAT130 Applied Algebra and Trigonometry, and PHY090 Preparatory Physics.

Sequence of Courses

This model is a two-year course schedule for students meeting all program requirements and deciding to pursue full-time study. Schedules will be redesigned for those requiring preparatory courses or those deciding to pursue part-time study.
