Electrical Engineering Technology, BS
LSSU’s Electrical Engineering Technology (EET) program integrates knowledge from areas of study such as science, math, computers, electrical engineering, management and economics in order to prepare you for an engineering technology career with the potential for growth into management. The EET program includes topics such as C programming, robotics, programmable logic controllers (PLCs), digital system design, embedded microprocessor systems, and circuit board layout and population. Most technical classes in the curriculum include a laboratory along with the lecture.
Students pursuing the BS degree in EET have the option to minor in Robotics Technology. LSSU is one of a few universities in the U.S. to offer an extensive Robotics Technology minor as part of the BS degree in EET and is home to one of the best robotics educational facilities in North America. The minor in Robotics Technology will be indicated on your transcripts.
Some of the program highlights are:
- The program provides an excellent mix of theory and practical laboratory experiences, preparing you to solve real-world problems.
- Engineering courses begin in the freshman year.
- Technical electives may be selected to obtain a minor in Robotics Technology.
- Less mathematics than the Electrical Engineering program.
Cooperative Education: Opportunities are available as part of this program for students who are academically qualified. A certificate that documents this practical training is available.
