Electrical Engineering Technology AAS70-77
This program prepares students to fill careers in specialized fields of electronics including electrical machinery, control systems, communications, digital and microprocessors, telecommunications and for continued study at the baccalaureate level in Engineering Technology. The program is accredited by the Engineering Technology Accreditation Commission of ABET,http//www.abet.org. Purchase of a scientific calculator, digital multi-meter, basic hand tools, and electronic breadboard is required for this program. Sixteen hours of math/science electives must be taken for graduation with the sequence below being preferred. CH141 General Chemistry 1 and PH152 General Physics 2 may be included where appropriate and with the approval of the STEM Center Dean.
Preparation for this program should include:
- Two high school mathematics courses, or the equivalent
- One laboratory science (physics and chemistry are recommended)
Students well prepared in mathematics may substitute a higher mathematics sequence with the approval of the Center Dean. Qualifying electives in this program may come from Engineering Science or Computer Science programs, and include mathematics, chemistry, and physics. A joint admissions program is available for the B.S. program in Electrical Engineering Technology at SUNY Institute of Technology.
