Associate in Applied Science
CIP CODE: 5310.00
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.
Program Learning Outcomes:
