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. The Electrical Engineering Technology program prepares students to apply basic engineering principles and technical skills in electrical maintenance and management or in the design, planning, construction, development, and installation of electrical systems, machines, and power generating equipment. Students are prepared through the study and application of principles from mathematics, natural sciences, and technology and applied processes in electrical engineering.
Graduates should qualify for employment as technicians, engineering assistants, technical managers, or salespersons in electrical generation/distribution, industrial maintenance, electronic repair, or other fields requiring a broad-based knowledge of electrical and electronic concepts.
