Electrical Engineering Technology - Associate Degree

General

Program Description

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.
