Pre-Engineering Electrical Engineering
(Articulation to a BS in Electrical Engineering with the University of Akron)

Our society is becoming increasingly dependent on electrical energy. Consumer products and the industrial processes required to produce them have been greatly influenced by the application of electrical and electronic technology. This has had an impact on research, development, testing, manufacturing and maintenance of existing and new products. This expanded “high-tech” effort has resulted in an increasing need for highly trained technicians in all areas of technology.

Electrical engineering technology is concerned with the generation, transmission and distribution of electrical power; its application to power and control industrial processes and wiring systems design.

Electrical technicians are part of the engineering team needed to fulfill the work in this broad and challenging field. The electrical engineering technician must have theoretical knowledge of the field and extensive hands-on experience with laboratory techniques and equipment.

Job opportunities as an electrical engineering technician include: transmission and distribution planner, industrial process control technician, electrical contractor, project manager, electrical technician, engineering assistant and service technician.

The application of electronics to electrical systems control has greatly influenced the educational background that electrical engineering technicians need. As a result, the electrical engineering technology program includes a number of electronic courses, as well as the traditional courses in electrical power, machines and control.

The electrical engineering technology program is accredited by the Technology Accreditation Commission of the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (TAC of ABET).

A graduate of this program will earn an associate of applied science degree in electrical engineering technology.
