The Electrical Engineering Technology program adopts the “Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology – Engineering Technology Accreditation Commission” (ABET – ETAC) learned capabilities in achieving student outcomes. Graduates of Electrical Engineering Technology must demonstrate:
- an ability to apply the knowledge, techniques, skills, and modern tools of the discipline to narrowly defined engineering technology activities;
- an ability to apply a knowledge of mathematics, science, engineering, and technology to engineering technology problems that require limited application of principles but extensive practical knowledge;
- an ability to conduct standard tests and measurements, and to conduct, analyze, and interpret experiments;
- an ability to function effectively as a member of a technical team;
- an ability to identify, analyze, and solve narrowly defined engineering technology problems;
- an ability to apply written, oral, and graphical communication in both technical and non-technical environments; and an ability to identify and use appropriate technical literature;
- an understanding of the need for and an ability to engage in self-directed continuing professional development;
- an understanding of and a commitment to address professional and ethical responsibilities, including a respect for diversity; and
- A commitment to quality, timeliness, and continuous improvement.
Graduates of the ACM Electrical Engineering Technology program will be prepared for careers in electronic circuits, electronic systems operation and maintenance, electrical installation, electric power and energy systems, plant maintenance personnel, and technical salespeople. These jobs are abundant in the oil and gas, electric power, telecommunication and networking, water, and transport industries.
