PROFESSOR JERRY F. SHOUP, Program Chair

The Bachelor of Science graduate with a major in Electrical Engineering Technology (E E T) is an engineering technologist who can bridge the gap between scientific advancement and practical electrical devices and systems. Research in all fields of electrical engineering has produced an abundance of new knowledge in recent years. Many of these advanced scientific achievements have been unused due to the shortage of engineering technologists specifically educated to convert scientific information into practical devices and systems.

The E E T major helps equip students with the various skills necessary to adapt new scientific knowledge to new products. Technical selections are offered in the senior year to provide some degree of specialization, but all graduates receive a well-rounded basic education in electrical and electronic design principles. The strengths of the program include: an applied hands-on program; extensive laboratory experience; promising job placement; accreditation by the Technology Accreditation Commission of the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology, 111 Market Place, Suite 1050, Baltimore, MD 21202-4012, telephone 410-347-7700, Web at www.abet.org.

E E T graduates who wish to continue their professional development can take the Fundamentals of Engineering examination in Pennsylvania, a prerequisite for taking the Professional Engineering examination.

For a B.S. degree in Electrical Engineering Technology, a minimum of 128 credits is required.

Admission Requirements for Transfer Students:
Applicants must have earned a high school diploma or equivalent and have attempted at least 40 semester credits at a regionally accredited college or university with at least a 2.0 cumulative grade-point average (4.0 scale). The evaluation of prior college work is done on an individual basis by the Office of Enrollment Services at Penn State Harrisburg.

Entry to Major Requirements:
Entry to the Electrical Engineering Technology major requires a 2.00 or higher cumulative grade-point average.

Re-enrollment:
Associate degree students should file a re-enrollment form during the final semester of their associate degree. Students re-enrolling from an associate's degree into the bachelor's degree should run a degree audit from eLion, using the E E T major code, to determine their curriculum requirements. Similar considerations apply to students changing majors from programs in science or engineering.

Students are directed to http://www.psu.edu/bulletins/bluebook/gened/ for an explanation of the Penn State General Education requirements.
