As an Electrical Engineering Technology (EET) graduate, you're skilled in testing, maintaining, and troubleshooting electrical and electronic devices found in machinery, computers, and communication. Typical careers for program grads include electrical/electronic development technician, electrical/electronic maintenance technician, electrical test technician, electrical/electronics technician, and field service technician. You may also choose to further your education by pursuing a four-year degree. The EET program consists of two tracks: a transfer track and a general track - the transfer track graduate can transfer to a four-year bachelor's degree program in electrical engineering technology.
