Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering Technology
Our bachelor's degree program in electrical engineering technology (EET) blends minds-on theory with hands-on applications to develop the knowledge and skills required to design, develop, modify, troubleshoot, maintain, calibrate and repair electrical and electronic systems.
Thanks to the "hands-on" nature of the EET program, you will be better prepared to analyze and solve many of the problems found in electronic-related industries. Cal U's EET program was designed with only one goal in mind: to prepare you for success.
After graduation, you will have the skills necessary to:
- Think critically to assess and evaluate complex technical and non-technical problems in a corporate environment and communicate effectively in oral, written, visual and graphical modes at a level expected of industry employers.
- Demonstrate the knowledge, skills, techniques and application of modern tools in the electrical engineering technology discipline, including the ability to use appropriate laboratory and test equipment.
- Perform ethically and professionally in business, industry and society.
- Analyze, design and implement analog and microprocessor systems through a blend of theoretical and practical methods and to apply microprocessor-based technology to solve technical problems.
Upon successful completion of this program, you will have an extensive background in electrical engineering technology, including the knowledge and technical skills needed to install, maintain, calibrate and repair sophisticated electrical and electronic systems; the computer skills to solve complex problems by writing computer programs; and the communication skills to prepare and present clear, concise, accurate technical reports.
The goal of the electrical engineering technology program at California University of Pennsylvania is to provide students with a well-rounded education that meets the needs of the commonwealth. Specifically, the goal is to prepare graduates for technically oriented careers related to analog and digital systems with an emphasis in the area of microprocessor technologies. The program integrates teamwork and leadership skills in a blend of theoretical and applied competencies to prepare students for changing technologies and lifelong learning.
Additionally, the program prepares students to take personal responsibility and to apply the highest professional and ethical standards to their activities in the field and to understand local, national and global issues related to the field.
The Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering Technology degree program is accredited by the Engineering Technology Accreditation Commission (ETAC) of ABET http://www.abet.org . All graduates from this program receive accredited degrees. Seniors and graduates of the programs are eligible to sit for a prelicensing Fundamentals of Engineering (FE) exam.
