  • Demonstrate readiness for career advancement, promotion, and mobility.
  • Demonstrate continuous learning, either on the job or in graduate school.
  • Demonstrate the ability to function as a contributing member of society and the profession.
  • Demonstrate effective teamwork skills and recognize ethical responsibilities.

Student learning outcomes for the degree are as follows: 
       The graduates will have:      

  • An ability to select and apply the knowledge, techniques, skills, and modern tools of the discipline to broadly-defined electrical engineering technology activities. 
  • An ability to select and apply a knowledge of mathematics, science, engineering, and technology to engineering technology problems that require the application of principles and applied procedures or methodologies.
  • An ability to conduct standard tests and measurements; to conduct, analyze, and interpret experiments; and to apply experimental results to improve processes.
  • An ability to design systems, components, or processes for broadly-defined engineering technology problems appropriate to program educational objectives.
  • An ability to function effectively as a member or leader on a technical team.
  • An ability to identify, analyze, and solve broadly-defined engineering technology problems.
  • An ability to apply written, oral, and graphical communication in both technical and non-technical environments; and an ability to identify and use appropriate technical literature.
  • An understanding of the need for and an ability to engage in self-directed continuing professional development.
  • An understanding of and a commitment to address professional and ethical responsibilities including a respect for diversity.
  • A knowledge of the impact of engineering technology solutions in a societal and global context; and
  • A commitment to quality, timeliness, and continuous improvement.

The four-year B.S. Electrical Engineering Technology (EET) program prepares students for careers in many fields related to engineering, in electronics or computer related industries, manufacturing, engineering sales, or any industry that uses electric power, electronic communications, computer networks, or computer-controlled equipment. The program provides students with advanced study in specialized fields of electronics and computer networking and provides other courses to build a foundation of technical and non-technical knowledge that is essential in modern industry.

The Computer, Electrical, and Information Technology (CEIT) department also offers the Bachelor of Science with a major in computer engineering technology (CPET), an Associate of Science in EET, 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 degree, 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 and Advanced Core Courses, Technical Electives, and General Education Requirements:

General Education Requirements-Credits:31

General Education Requirement-Capstone Experience Credits: 3

Technical Electives Credits: 8

Complete 8 credits from any ECET or CPET courses at the 300 or 400 level.  Consult Academic Advisor.

Free Elective Credits: 3

Total Credits: 120 (60 credits from A.S. Program plus 60 credits from B.S program.)
