The curriculum in Engineering Technology (ETEE/ETME) follows TAC/ABET recommendations and offers upper division courses leading to a Bachelor of Science Degree in Electrical/Electronic Engineering Technology. The program is designed to provide a flexible course of study for students holding an Associate Degree in Engineering Technology from the Maryland Community College system and for students transferring out of the regular engineering program. The first two years may be completed through any of the engineering technology programs offered by an accredited community college. The curriculum provides in-depth exposure to the areas of communications, digital systems (including microprocessors), power machinery, and electronic systems design.
The goal of the Engineering Technology program is to prepare students for a challenging career in Electrical/Electronic Engineering Technology. After receiving the Bachelor of Science degree, graduates are employed as Engineering Technologists. The emphasis in engineering technology courses is the practical design and utilization of devices and systems, with a strong laboratory program supporting the lecture courses.
It is anticipated that most students from community colleges will transfer about 60 credit hours. Total semester credits required for graduation is 124. A minimum grade of “C” must be achieved in prerequisite courses, major core courses, supportive courses, technical elective courses, and selected general education courses. Course requirements other than those listed should be selected in consultation with the advisor or Department Chairperson. Electrical/Electronics Engineering Technology requires a minimum total of 24 credit hours of Technical Elective courses.
A degree in Engineering Technology provides an engineering education with emphasis on manufacturing systems operations, technical applications and managerial services in government and in industry.
