Bachelor of Science Degree in Electrical Engineering Technology (EET)
Our ABET-accredited program prepares well-educated, highly skilled, and socially and professionally responsible electrical engineering technologists to have productive and rewarding careers at local, state and national levels. Graduates are well grounded in the fundamentals of engineering, mathematics, science, communications, and problem solving.
Program Educational Objectives
The objectives of the Electrical Engineering Technology Program are to:
- educate students to be practical and qualified engineering technologists
- prepare engineering technologists who have problem solving abilities and technical hands-on skills to enter professional careers
- graduate engineering technologists who are knowledgeable in design, application, installation, manufacturing, operation and/or maintenance of electrical/electronics systems.
Graduates will be socially and professionally responsible and possess skills for life-long learning. To continuously improve the quality of education, the program utilizes input from employers, alumni, and an industry advisory board.
The EET program offers two options:
- Power Systems
- Electronic Systems
Power Systems Emphasis
Partnering with the Nuclear Power Institute (NPI), a power systems track has been developed and put in practice to serve the electrical engineering technology workforce needs for new or existing nuclear power plants in the State of Texas. Our program offers the following courses within this perspective:
- Energy Conversion
- Power Protection Systems
- Power Transmission & Distribution
Summer Camp for High School Teachers and Students
A weeklong summer camp is planned for 2010 to train, prepare and educate local area high school teachers and students about careers in the nuclear power industry. A visit to a local nuclear power plant (South Texas Project) is also being considered. This program will provide participants firsthand knowledge that can be used to translate math problems and science experiments to real life in the nuclear power industry.
