Electrical Engineering Technology - ARCHIVE

Penn State Erie, The Behrend College (EETBD)

This major helps prepare graduates for careers in such varied areas as electronics, microprocessors, communications, instrumentation and control, and power. The curriculum provides thorough training in applied mathematics, physics, electrical and electronic circuit analysis and design, microprocessors, instrumentation and control theory, communication systems, power systems, and quality control. The major culminates with a capstone design project involving an actual design or manufacturing problem which is often sponsored by regional industry. Graduates may qualify as engineering technologists working side-by-side with engineers, scientists, and other skilled workers in these capacities. Positions include electrical and electronic systems design, microprocessor applications, instrumentation and control, electrical testing, plant engineering, quality control, management, and technical sales and service. This program is accredited by the Technology Accreditation Commission of the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology, 111 Market Pl., Suite 1050, Baltimore, MD 21202.

This program is primarily for graduates of a TAC of ABET-accredited electrical engineering technology associate degree program who want to obtain a baccalaureate degree.

For the B.S. degree in Electrical Engineering Technology, a minimum of 128 credits is required. Each student must earn at least a grade of C in each 300- and 400-level course in the major field.
