In today’s world, the great majority of all products, systems, and services include electrical or electronic aspects. Teams of trained people are needed to conceive, design, develop, and produce new answers to modern technical problems. The roles of the team members may vary, but the electrical engineering technologist generally uses the hands-on, application-oriented approach. Although technologists have knowledge of theoretical issues, they tend to focus on using current, state-of-the-art and emerging technologies to solve practical design and application problems.

Electrical engineering technology students can tailor their program to meet their needs by selecting specific technical electives to fill individual interests or career plans. The areas of concentration are:

  • Communication Systems
  • Control Systems
  • Microprocessors & Digital Systems
