- Bachelor of Science in Electronic Engineering Technology (B.S.E.E.T.)
Nature of Program
The Bachelor of Science in Electronic Engineering Technology program is a plus-two program that builds on two-year Electrical or Electronics Engineering Technology programs. An associate of science degree in Electrical or Electronics Engineering Technology or the equivalent is required for entrance into the program. Graduates of associate of science degree Electrical/Electronic Engineering Technology programs may enter the program directly as juniors based on an evaluation of their transcripts. In all cases, an evaluation of transfer credits will be conducted to validate course requirements. This evaluation determines if additional lower division courses will be required to meet the prerequisites of upper division courses in the curriculum.
The B.S.E.E.T program is designed to produce applications - oriented graduates with an electronics background to fulfill the demands created by rapidly changing technology. Technical specialty courses in the curriculum emphasize process control, instrumentation, communications, and microprocessor applications. Course offerings are designed to be consistent with the evolution of energy-related and computer-based industrial needs of the state and region.
The Bachelor of Science Electronic Engineering Technology program is accredited by the Engineering Technology Accreditation Commission of ABET, http://www.abet.org.
Careers in Electronic Engineering Technology
The program prepares graduates with the technical and managerial skills necessary to enter careers in the design, application, installation, manufacturing, testing, operation, oversight, and maintenance of electrical or electronic systems. Baccalaureate degree graduates are also prepared for development and implementation of new electrical/electronic systems.
Job titles of recent graduates have included: Electronic Technician, System Representative II, Service Engineer, Engineering Technician, Maintenance Technician, Foreman/Supervisor/ Manager, Electrical Engineer, Sales Engineer, Process Engineer, Design Engineer, Instrumentation Engineer, Control Systems Engineer, Quality Assurance Manager.
Plus-Two Baccalaureate Transfer Options
Students who have completed course work or associate degree programs in engineering-oriented programs at other institutions and wish to continue their studies toward a Bachelor of Science degree in engineering technology may do so. For more information, contact the Chair of the Engineering Technology Department.
