Electrical Engineering Technology
Bachelor of Science
Today’s world turns on technology. The need is great for those who understand electrical power, energy harnessing and control, embedded electronic systems and who have the skills necessary for design, installation, manufacture, testing, analysis, development and oversight.
Our faculty have a wealth of real-world experience and are leaders in their respective disciplines. You will be mentored by experienced instructors and train in real-life laboratories and settings, gaining a theoretical and hands-on understanding of what it takes to succeed in the electrical engineering technology industry.
The program offers courses that emphasize practical aspects of engineering along with abstract concepts and theories.
Introductory courses courses blend engineering knowledge, scientific principles and technical skills used in modern industries.
- ECET 10001 – Introduction To Electrical And Computer Engineering Technology
- ECET 15901 – Digital Circuits And Applications
A deeper knowledge is built by integrating theory with extensive hands-on laboratory training, mathematics and science.
- ECET 20901 – Microcontroller Applications
- MA 16019 – Applied Calculus I For Technology
System knowledge deepens with opportunities to explore computer systems, electrical power and renewable energy, electric mobility, electronics hardware, process controls and telecommunications.
- ECET 30301 – Telecommunication Systems
- ECET 39200 – Digital Signal Processing
The Senior Design Project provides the opportunity to pursue an idea from conception to design, then execute into a demonstrable project.
- ECET 49000 – Senior Design Project Phase I
- ECET 45500 – Object Oriented System Design
Students complete a Senior Design Project, a one-year capstone individual/team project that provides the opportunity to pursue an idea from conception to design, then execute into a demonstrable project.
The PNW Engineering Technology program prepares graduates for a variety of careers in embedded computer systems, electrical power and renewable energy, electronics, control, and telecommunications through classroom and extensive hands-on laboratory training.

The Electrical Engineering Technology (EET) Bachelor of Science degree is accredited by the Engineering Technical Accreditation Commission of ABET. This ensures that the program is independently reviewed and meets the quality expectation for that profession.
Through the different courses I attended, I gained a better understanding and a wealth of field knowledge of electrical engineering and computer science from dedicated and experienced professors who were always there to help. Participating in the final project of each course was one of my best learning experiences. It gave me an opportunity to apply what I was learning in the classroom to a real-life work setting. The experience I received in this hands-on learning environment was extremely valuable for my current job, as it has not only taught me how to work and contribute as a team member but also granted me open doors to the competitive work market.
I feel very confident of my abilities and skills as an Electrical Engineer. The balance between theoretical and practical classes is good enough to gain the essential knowledge about the program. Being a member in Tau Alpha Pi national honor society for engineering technology, gave me the chance to meet with other outstanding students in the same field and exchange our experiences as well as improve my communication skills.
Throughout my years here I have taken many courses, and I have yet to have a professor that I did not like. All the professors that I have had are nice, knowledgeable in their fields, and are willing to work with the students. The class environments are always very welcoming and feel as though they are a good place to learn.
