Overview
The electrical engineering technology (EET) curriculum provides preparation for outstanding career opportunities not only in the electronics industry itself but also in many other areas in modern industry which depend upon electronics for control, communications or computation. Outstanding opportunities exist for graduates to work in diverse areas of electronics and computers.

The work of the electrical engineering technology graduate may range from assisting in the design and development of new equipment in the laboratory, applying modern microprocessors in the field, to the operation or supervision of production operations or field representatives.

The program offers the Bachelor of Science in Engineering Technology degree with a major in Electrical Engineering Technology. An option in computers is also available. To meet diverse needs, the program is laboratory-oriented and provides a strong foundation of specialized mathematics and science courses in electronics technology and related technical areas, as well as courses in the area of communications, humanities, and the social sciences.

Program Educational Objectives. OSU Electrical Engineering Technology graduates a few years after graduation will:

• Be employed in a technical or management position where the skills and knowledge of electrical engineering technology are utilized.

• Continue life-long learning and professional growth through participation and membership in professional organizations and/or through the continuation of professional studies.

• Work proactively and productively in teams and communicate effectively in written, oral and graphical forms.

• Successfully apply mathematical, analytical and technical expertise to industrial problems.

The electrical engineering technology graduates can expect to obtain these objectives because at the time of graduation they will:

• Have fundamental mathematical, analytical, and scientific skills and abilities to apply engineering technology concepts to a wide variety of problems.

• Combine laboratory/design experience and theory with focus on contemporary applications.

• Be able to work in teams and communicate effectively in written, oral and graphical form.

• Be prepared for life-long career and professional growth, students will interact with local industries and be active in their appropriate professional societies.

• Demonstrate an awareness of the importance of ethical and social issues, and responsibilities associated with their engineering technology careers within diverse global environments.

The Electrical Engineering Technology major provides graduates the ability to enter the dynamic field of electronic hardware applications. The demand for graduates having electronic design and application skills remains important in the fields of control and communication. Graduates of this program will be prepared for these opportunities in industry that require considerable knowledge of the electronic industry.

The Electrical Engineering Technology–Computer option curriculum provides the preparation for graduates to enter the growing field of computer hardware and software. The demand for graduates having both computer hardware and software skills is quickly developing as the importance of automation, robotics, and artificial intelligence is recognized. Graduates of this program will be prepared for these opportunities in industry that require considerable knowledge of both computer hardware and software.

The Electrical Engineering Technology program is accredited by the Engineering Technology Accreditation Commission of ABET.
