The Electrical Engineering Technology Program students develop skills in design, analysis, and the manufacture of electronic and computer equipment through courses that combine laboratory and classroom experience.
Graduates find employment opportunities in the design, manufacturing and maintenance of everything from bio-medical devices and robotics to consumer electronics and supercomputers.
Graduates of the program will be able to:
- apply the knowledge, techniques, skills and modern tools of the discipline to narrowly defined engineering technology activities;
- apply a knowledge of mathematics, science, engineering and technology to engineering technology problems that require limited application of principles but extensive practical knowledge;
- conduct standard tests and measurements and to conduct, analyze, and interpret experiments;
- function effectively as a member of a technical team;
- analyze, solve and design solutions for well-defined problems;
- apply written, oral and graphical communication in both technical and non-technical environments; and an ability to identify and use appropriate technical literature;
- understand the need for and engage in self-directed continuing professional development;
- understand and be committed to address professional and ethical responsibilities, including a respect for diversity;
- apply circuit analysis and design, computer programming, associated software, analog and digital electronics, microcomputers and engineering standards to the building, testing, operation and maintenance of electrical/electronic(s) systems; and
- apply natural sciences and mathematics at or above the level of algebra and trigonometry to the building, testing, operation, and maintenance of electrical/electronic systems.
Students must demonstrate Algebra I competency before taking courses in the major. Algebra I competency may be verified with a passing score on the College鈥檚 placement test or by completing the appropriate class.
