Electrical Engineering Technology

Design. Draft. Bring concepts to life.

Michigan Tech works with industry partners to make sure your skills are current and relevant. Our graduates work for AT&T, Black & Veatch, Ford, Harley-Davidson, and the Mayo Clinic.

Michigan Tech's engineering technology programs are alternate academic paths for careers in engineering. Electrical engineering technologists start as students who are fascinated by how things work—from robots to TVs to toasters. You’ll master the fundamentals of electronics and electrical power and graduate with the design, drafting, and technical skills to put engineering ideas into action. Focus your studies on computer engineering technology or power and industrial control.

Master the fundamentals of electronics and electrical power in the NUCOR Industrial Control and Automation Lab. Get familiar with wireless communications, robotics automation, and microprocessor architecture.
