The two-year A.S. Electrical Engineering Technology (EET) program is a combination of courses in electricity, electronics, computers, mathematics, science, and general academic areas. The program helps students prepare for employment as electrical/electronic or computer technicians,and provides knowledge in fields such as computer electronics, local area networking, industrial electronics, communication electronics, military electronics, automation, electronics servicing, and electrical power. Upon completion of the A.S. EET, all credits can be applied to B.S. EET.
The Computer, Electrical, and Information Technology (CEIT) department also offers the Bachelor of Science with a major in electrical engineering technology, a Bachelor of Science with a major in computer engineering technology (CPET), and a Bachelor of Science with a major in information technology (ITC). In addition to the degrees, the department offers a minor in electronics and certificate programs in computer-controlled systems, power electronics systems, and computer networking.
To earn the A.S., you must fulfill the requirements of IPFW (Regulations) and of the College of Engineering, Technology, and Computer Science (Colleges ); and complete the following courses earning grades of C- or better in all Core Courses and General Education Requirements:
