Electrical Engineering Technology Bachelor's Degree Overview
Why major in electrical engineering technology vs. electrical engineering at The University of Toledo?
UToledo's electrical engineering technology students focus on technical skills and hands-on lab experience. Our program emphasizes problem solving and the application of theory first. Electrical engineering undergrads, on the other hand, start with theory and then move to the application.
This broad knowledge across a wide variety of EE topics makes UT grads highly marketable. They have technical skills in the areas of automated manufacturing, industrial controls, test operations, power generation and distribution, digital communications and instrumentation.
Electrical Engineering Technology Bachelor's Degree Highlights
- Optional co-ops. Our College of Engineering is known for its unique co-op program. Students build a resume and earn a paycheck. UT places engineering students in businesses in 40 states and 34 countries.
- Learn the latest technology. We teach two major brands of PLCs (digital computers used for automation) popular in industry. This gives UToledo engineering graduates a leg up in the job market, especially in more technical automation jobs. Some UT graduates have had multiple job offers, with annual, starting salaries ranging from $60,000-65,000.
- Customize your major. Have a specific career path in mind? UT’s EET majors often minor, concentrate or dual-major in:
- Mechanical engineering technology — UT recently added an MET concentration to the EET program in response to feedback from regional employers and student interest. The objective: To better prepare graduates for work in an industrial setting.
- Computer science engineering technology — This popular program shares a common core with the EET program, making it easier to dual-major.
- Business and business administration — UT’s College of Business and Innovation is one of the country’s best business schools.
- Experienced faculty. Most have a minimum of three years of industrial experience. Many have 10 years or more.
- Hands-on experience in state-of-the-art labs.
- Flexible scheduling. UToledo accommodates all kinds of students. The EET program offers full-time day classes, part-time night classes and online classes.
- Accreditation by the Engineering Technology Accreditation Commission of ABET.
- Degree completion program. Have a two-year associate's degree in engineering technology? UToledo makes it easy to complete your bachelor’s degree and transfer credit.
Electrical engineering technologists are among the most well-rounded engineering professionals. They are in high demand.
EET graduates may work for small or large manufacturing companies. They usually concentrate in the area of automation and electrical control.
Typical jobs include:
|Automotive engineer||Electrical engineer|
