Electrical Engineering Technology Bachelor's Degree Overview
Electrical engineering technology (EET) combines knowledge of electrical engineering theory with technical skills in a variety of areas. Examples of these areas are automated manufacturing, industrial controls, test operations, digital communications, and instrumentation.
UT's electrical engineering technology students learn about the applications of technology through laboratory experience rather than research and development. Electrical engineering technology courses are taught by full-time faculty who have professional experience in all areas of electrical engineering.
College of Engineering Highlights
- Top-notch co-op program - We are one of only 8 schools nationwide that require a co-op, with student placements in 40 states and 34 countries. A co-op is a semester-long, full-time, paid work assignment that directly relates to a student's major. The co-op program includes three semesters of co-ops.
- Entrepreneurship focus - Incoming freshmen receive special training related to starting their own business and promoting their inventions and ideas.
- Career Development Center - We have an entire office with staff dedicated to helping students find co-ops and hone their professional skills for interviews. Most of our students are job-ready by sophomore year.
- High retention rate - Our freshman-to-sophomore retention rate is 90 percent.
- Excellent graduation rate - The number of bachelor's degrees awarded per faculty member is the highest in the state.
- Senior design clinic - Each bachelor's degree graduate works as part of a team to design a solution or prototype for an actual client.
- Strong graduate programs - The Princeton Review has ranked us among the top 20 in the country.
The desire for the latest technology is expected to increase the demand for graduates of electrical engineering technology. This means graduates will have very competitive starting salaries. The broad nature of the program supports employment in nearly all areas of practice. Graduates of the electrical engineering technology program qualify for registration as a Professional Engineer following a predetermined period of professional engineering employment (eight years in Ohio) and completion of the Fundamentals of Engineering (FE) Exam and the Professional Engineering (PE) Exam.
