Bachelor’s Degree (BS EET)
The Bachelor of Science graduate with a major in Electrical Engineering Technology is an engineering technologist who can bridge the gap between scientific advancement and practical electrical devices and systems. Research in all fields of electrical engineering has produced an abundance of new knowledge in recent years. Many of these advanced scientific achievements have been unused due to the shortage of engineering technologists specifically educated to convert scientific information into practical devices and systems.
The EET major aims to equip students with the various skills necessary to adapt new scientific knowledge to new products. Technical selections are offered in the senior year to provide some degree of specialization, but all graduates receive a well-rounded basic education in electrical and electronic design principles. The strengths of the program include: an applied, hands-on program; extensive laboratory experience; promising job placement; and accreditation by the Technology Accreditation Commission of the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology, 111 Market Place, Suite 1050, Baltimore, MD 21202-4012, telephone 410-347-7700, or on the Web at http://www.abet.org/.
EET graduates who wish to continue their professional development can take the Fundamentals of Engineering Examination in Pennsylvania, a prerequisite for taking the Professional Engineering Examination.
