An electrical engineering technology major is prepared to solve problems related to generating, distributing, transmitting, and using electrical energy. You will apply your knowledge to help design and develop computers, communications equipment, medical monitoring devices, navigational equipment, and other electrical and electronic equipment. An engineering technology degree is different than engineering because the class and laboratory work is focused on applications. As you learn theories of how things work, you will apply them in immediate, relevant ways.
Skills and abilities this major develops include: logical thinking skills, mechanical skills, math skills (for analysis, design and troubleshooting), observational skills, and teamwork.
