Electrical Engineering Technology graduates find employment opportunities in the design, manufacturing and maintenance of everything from nano-bots to supercomputers. Many industries employ electrical engineering technicians including bio-medical, robotics, controls, telecommunication, utilities, audio and consumer electronics, and manufacturing and service of every kind.
Can students who major in Electrical Engineering Technology Transfer to a four-year college or university? Many four-year colleges and universities will apply many of the courses students have taken toward a bachelor's degree. The College also has a Joint Admissions agreement with The New Jersey Institute of Technology which will allow students, upon graduation from this program, to enter the B.S. in Electrical Engineering Technology program with junior standing.
What will students learn if they study Electrical Engineering Technology? They develop skills and the understanding of the theory of electronics. Students develop skills in design, analysis, and the manufacture of electronic and computer equipment through courses that combine laboratory and classroom experience. The laboratories are equipped with modern industrial-grade equipment and provide for a great variety of applications of knowledge.
Are there any requirements that must be satisfied before taking courses in the major? Algebra I is a prerequisite for all majors. Algebra I competency may be verified with a passing score on the College’s placement test or completion of the appropriate course.
How long will it take to complete this degree? Once students complete developmental coursework (if needed), the degree can be completed in two years of full-time study. They can shorten the amount of time by taking courses in the summer and winter sessions. They can complete the certificate in three semesters.
