Electrical Engineering Technology: Internships and Careers
Electrical engineering technology (EET) students are encouraged to complete an internship as part of their degree requirements. Upon acceptance to an internship site, you will work with an electrical engineer and/or an electronic technician inspecting, maintaining, calibrating, testing, analyzing, assembling, modifying or designing various types of electronic devices. Programs of instruction will vary but you'll be provided with practical work experience in a dynamic environment in which you will be dealing with actual problems requiring practical solutions. Adviser, department chair and dean approval is required before course enrollment.
Employment opportunities for electrical engineering technology graduates are diverse and plentiful. Graduates find challenging positions as engineers, electronic designers, software developers and programmers, network technicians, instrumentation designers, systems technicians, administrators, field representatives and sales representatives. Other graduates pursue advanced degrees in master's and doctoral programs. Graduates of the program have been experiencing an excellent job market in recent years. During the next three years, the demand is expected to increase.
