Electrical Engineering Technology: Curriculum

Our curriculum is a blend of hands-on and minds-on learning activities focused on solving problems using concepts from science, mathematics, computer science, engineering and technology. You'll learn how to design, develop, modify, maintain and repair sophisticated electrical and electronic systems.

Coursework in math, physics and computer science is provided so that meaningful mathematical modeling can be applied. Computer/microprocessor interfacing and programming are used extensively to demonstrate flexibility and simplicity in instrumentation design, communication, digital signal processing and controls.

Classical linear systems are presented to provide you with an understanding of linear active filters, transient analysis, transducer interfacing, linearization, instrumentation, communications and systems control. You will also be required to independently design microprocessor/microcontroller systems that can be interfaced to the analog world.

Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering Technology: 124 credits 

The following eight-semester schedule of courses provides a recommended framework for completing this program of study in four years. College Algebra (3 crs.) and College Trigonometry (3 crs.) may be substituted for Pre-Calculus, if math placement test score does not permit direct entry into Pre-Calculus, or if students would prefer less intense coverage of this material.
