Graduates of the two-year Electrical Engineering Technology program generally function as assistants to electrical engineers in the design, analysis, and laboratory testing of electrical and electronic systems and of rotating machinery. Most graduates are employed by electrical and electronic equipment manufacturers, utility companies, the aerospace industry, and manufacturing companies in general.

Students in the Electrical Engineering Technology (EET) program may choose to complete two years of study and earn an Associate in Applied Science (AAS) degree. The AAS provides early access to employment in engineering support positions. Upon completion of the AAS degree, the student may continue on for the Bachelor of Science in Applied Science (BSAS) degree. This program provides additional coursework, continuing the student's growth to that of an engineer or designer. Exceptional students may be eligible for enrollment in a Master of Engineering or Master of Business Administration program.

Program Educational Objectives

Educational objectives for the electrical engineering technology programs have been developed by faculty and the program industrial advisory committee to support the university, college, and School of Engineering Technology missions. Graduates of the EET associate degree program generally function as assistants to electrical engineers in the design, analysis, and laboratory testing of electrical and electronic systems and of rotating machinery. Bachelor degree graduates are prepared to design and test electrical systems, become project managers/supervisors as well as component or equipment inspectors. 

During their first few years after earning the electrical engineering technology degree at YSU, graduates will have demonstrated the ability to:

  • Secure employment in a technical career related to their Electrical Engineering Technology degree.
  • Communicate effectively in a professional environment.
  • Continue growth in professional knowledge and skills.
  • Achieve recognition consistent with their educational achievements.
