Robots are big business, and graduates who understand the concepts of mechatronics, robotics, automation, and controls are valuable employees. MERET students develop hands-on engineering knowledge operating industry-grade equipment while learning to maintain, program, and design automated systems, skills that make EET graduates highly-sought candidates for employment in pharmaceutical, food, automotive, manufacturing, and other industries.
You love to tinker with electronic gadgets, or maybe you're just fascinated by how things work, from robots to TVs to toasters. The Electrical Engineering Technology (EET) program may be for you.
EET program majors master the fundamentals of electronics and electrical power, and they learn the design, drafting, and technical skills that put engineering ideas into action.
Your studies will focus on one of two areas: computer engineering technology or power and industrial control. Using Amatrol mechatronics stations, you'll develop hands-on engineering knowledge operating industry-grade equipment.
EET students perform actual research while learning how to maintain, program, and design automated systems—skills that make EET graduates highly-sought candidates for employment in pharmaceutical, food, automotive, manufacturing, and other industries.
The College of Computing works closely with industrial partners to ensure that EET curriculum is current and relevant. You'll use industrial-grade products provided by FANUC Robotics America as you learn how to program, operate, and repair robots—and earn a FANUC Robotic Automation Industrial Certificate, a huge advantage in your employment search.
Looking for some international experience in one of the world's hottest economies? Take advantage of our exchange program in Brazil. We also offer study abroad opportunities in Denmark with our partner school, Aarhus School of Marine and Technical Engineering.
