Electrical Engineering Technology, BS


About the Program

The Electrical Engineering Technology major is part of the Electrical Engineering Technology program.  The Electrical Engineering Technology program is accredited by the Engineering Technology Accreditation Commission of ABET, www.abet.org.

When you study electrical engineering technology, you study the lifeblood of today’s technology: electronics and computers. Electronics technology is a part of most everything society relies on, from air conditioning to airplanes, and from trains to televisions. And because technology is constantly evolving, you will be engaged in learning methods that will help you adapt to and embrace new technologies and their uses.

Students in this program can apply to participate in a five-year combined bachelor’s/master’s degree program in electrical engineering technology.

Critical Course


The ♦ course is considered critical.

In alignment with the Degree Map Guidance for Indiana’s Public Colleges and Universities, published by the Commission for Higher Education (pursuant to HEA 1348-2013), a Critical Course is identified as “one that a student must be able to pass to persist and succeed in a particular major.  Students who want to be nurses, for example, should know that they are expected to be proficient in courses like biology in order to be successful.  These would be identified by the institutions for each degree program”. 

Disclaimer


The student is ultimately responsible for knowing and completing all degree requirements.
