The EET program will be discontinued at the end of the 2019-2020 academic year. Transfer students may be admitted if they can complete their degrees by August 2020. Consider our Bachelor of Science degree program in electrical engineering. B.S. in Electrical engineering


Our Bachelor of Science degree program in electrical engineering technology prepares graduates to work productively as electrical engineers in industry or government or to earn advanced degrees. Most of the science and technology courses in the program comprise both a lecture and a laboratory component.

Extensive hands-on experience in laboratories equipped to industry standards ensures that students will become intimately familiar with current technical practices and will be able to apply theory to real-world situations.

Accreditation

Our Bachelor of Science degree program in electrical engineering technology is accredited by the Engineering Technology Accreditation Commission of ABET (www.abet.org) and prepares graduates to work productively as electrical engineers in industry or government or to earn advanced degrees. Graduates of our program are eligible to pursue licensure as professional engineers in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and most other states.

Transfer Credits

Subject to the review of the faculty, incoming students may receive credit for previous coursework at comparable institutions or for technical experience gained on the job. Agreements with other local institutions allow Point Park students to register for courses that are offered elsewhere, giving them the opportunity to pursue subjects not taught on campus during a particular term.

Class Schedules

A full schedule of evening and weekend classes gives our students in the electrical engineering technology program the ability to earn a four-year degree while working full time during the day. We have a long history of educating part-time working students and offering them additional resources and assistance.

Degree Requirements and Course Offerings

Students in the electrical engineering technology program gain a solid theoretical foundation of mathematics and science as the basis for their study of required technical courses in electric circuits, electronics, electrical power and digital and microprocessor systems.

Most of the science and technology courses, including nearly all of the courses in the major, comprise both a lecture and a laboratory component. Extensive hands-on experience in laboratories equipped to industry standards ensures that graduates of the program are intimately familiar with current technical practices and are able to apply theory to real-world situations.

A series of advanced technical elective courses allows upper-level students to specialize in one or more of the following areas:

  • Electrical power
  • Digital electronics and microprocessors
  • Electromagnetics
  • Communications
  • Control systems

Electrical Engineering Technology Internship Opportunities

Internships, which may carry University credit, are available with local companies for students who wish to obtain work experience during their studies. During their time in the electrical engineering technology program, students have interned for organizations such as:

  • GAI Consultants, Inc.
  • Westinghouse
  • U.S. Army Corps of Engineers
  • Lechtzer Incorporated
