Bachelor of Science in Applied Science Degree

The Electrical Engineering Technology  program is based on the "two-plus-two'' educational system which provides the student with the flexibility of earning an associate degree and a bachelor's degree according to his or her needs. After completing the requirements of the associate degree, the student may elect to either enter industry or, through an added two years of full-time study (averaging 17 hours per semester) or equivalent part-time study, earn the Bachelor of Science in Applied Science (BSAS).

The bachelor's degree program in electrical engineering technology prepares students for employment as engineers or engineering designers. The students focus on analog and digital electronics communication systems, smart grid and power distribution, and computer networking systems. Co-op programs with various local companies enable EET students to gain experience and income during their junior and senior years. Many students work full or part-time while completing the BSAS degree taking evening classes. Students are encouraged to take the Fundamentals of Engineering (FE) exam as the first step toward professional registration.

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 bachelor degree are prepared to assist in the design and testing of electrical systems and may function independently in some areas.

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.

Accreditation and Registration

The electrical engineering technology bachelor program is accredited by the ETAC Accreditation Commission of ABET, In most states, including Ohio, West Virginia and Pennsylvania, bachelor's degree graduates are qualified to take the Fundamentals of Engineering (FE) exam, and, with sufficient work experience, the Professional Engineers (PE) exam. Graduates are also qualified to apply to the National Institute for Certification in Engineering Technologies (NICET) for certification procedures in various specialty areas, depending on academic major and employment area.
