Electrical/electronic engineering technology is the largest branch of engineering technology and includes a diverse range of sub-disciplines, such as applied design, electronics, embedded systems, control systems, instrumentation, telecommunications, and power systems. From the first semester of your first year, the two- and four-year electrical engineering technology programs will engage students in hands-on learning opportunities both in and out of the classroom.

"Students not only learn electrical circuit concepts, they enjoy hands-on training through our robust lab experiences." -Dr. Matt Lawrence, Dept. Chair, Mechanical and Electrical Engineering Technology
“The electrical engineering technology program helped to reinforce and expand upon skills that I had learned as a technician in the military. The hands-on aspect means that you get to spend as much time in a lab as in a classroom. It’s not enough to know how a system is supposed to work; you have to be able to fix it when it doesn’t.” -Matthew Porterfield, ’16
