Watch a video about our Electrical Engineering Technology program.

Electrical engineering technologists' work involves the design, development, production, testing and manufacturing of electronic and electrical equipment. In this calculus-based program, gain skills necessary to apply knowledge of electrical theory to numerous settings. Technologists in R&D assist engineers to design, build and test electronic apparatus; in manufacturing, they supervise the production of electronic equipment, repair equipment, and set up and program automated manufacturing lines; in field service engineering, they install, maintain, troubleshoot and repair computer systems and electronic devices.
