The Engineering Technology program is accredited by the Engineering Technology Accreditation Commission of ABET.
The engineering technology major combines an applied, hands-on curriculum with a more traditional theoretical and design orientation. The program builds technical and engineering competencies on a strong foundation of mathematics and science.
The electrical and control option curriculum provides students theory and laboratory practice in areas of digital and electronic systems, industrial instrumentation, electromechanical/mechanical/optical sensors, actuation systems, AC and DC drives, electrical machines and control, power electronics, energy management, microprocessors/embedded controls, automatic process control systems, and industrial automation and robotics. In preparation for students to become engineering technologists, they are educated in the advanced techniques of system design, installation, and the application of electrical and controls, using innovative state-of-the-art technologies reinforced throughout the program by intergrated laboratory experiences.
Electrical and control students are required to take the Certified Control Systems Technician test offered by the Instrumentation, Systems, and Automation Society (ISA).
