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.
Follow Your Path
Ask your advisor about 2+2 transfer opportunities.
A graduate of this program will have the potential for employment in the following areas:
- Electrical/Electronic Development Technician: assists engineers in the design and development of experimental and prototype equipment and products.
- Electrical/Electronic Maintenance Technician: services and programs in-plant automatic control equipment, computers, robots, and other equipment.
- Electrical Test Technician: tests, troubleshoots, and inspects electrical/electronic products (quality control testing).
- Electrical/Electronics Technician: maintains equipment including motor controllers, cables, communication equipment, computers, security systems, CNC equipment, programmable controllers, robots, and automatic production equipment; works with engineers in building breadboard and prototype devices; and evaluates and tests electronic devices and systems.
- Field Service Technician: services and overhauls equipment in the customer’s facility; works with sales personnel; and demonstrates new equipment to potential customers.
