Engineering Technology

Electrical Engineering Technology Concentration

The Electrical Engineering Technology (EET) concentration prepares graduates that can design, develop, test, and supervise the manufacturing, installation, and maintenance of electrical and electronic equipment, components, or systems for commercial, industrial, military, or medical use. EET graduates are experienced, accomplished, and self-motivated problem solvers who can work through technical challenges and present practical solutions to maintain and support industry-leading products and systems. The program prepares students to work across a variety of functional groups that are directly involved in engineering, product development, implementation, and international contract manufacturing.

The EET concentration provides an extensive background in electric circuit analysis and electronics. Students are required to study digital and analog electronics, digital computer design, analysis of electric power systems, and renewable energy.

During the first three years, students in engineering technology take electrical, mechanical, computer, and industrial courses to get a solid, multidisciplinary, systematic background in different engineering fields. Students are required to complete general and concentration engineering technology courses, technical electives, and free elective courses that permit students great latitude in tailoring the program of study to match their career goals.

Writing-Intensive Course Requirements

In order to graduate, all students must pass three writing-intensive courses after their freshman year. Two writing-intensive courses must be in a student's major. The third can be in any discipline. Students are advised to take one writing-intensive class each year, beginning with the sophomore year, and to avoid “clustering” these courses near the end of their matriculation. Transfer students need to meet with an academic advisor to review the number of writing-intensive courses required to graduate.

A "WI" next to a course in this catalog may indicate that this course can fulfill a writing-intensive requirement. For the most up-to-date list of writing-intensive courses being offered, students should check the Writing Intensive Course List at the University Writing Program. Students scheduling their courses can also conduct a search for courses with the attribute "WI" to bring up a list of all writing-intensive courses available that term.
