(Bachelor of Science)

UW-Green Bay Engineering Technology

Combine hands-on learning with academic coursework and get ready for high-demand jobs in the growing field of engineering technology. The University partners with regional leaders and technical colleges so that you will be prepared for an ever-changing industry. Get the technical skills that will make you an expert and the critical-thinking skills that will make you indispensable.

Engineering Technology Programs Mission

All of the Engineering Technology programs (Electrical, Mechanical and Environmental) include a strong liberal arts base along with a number of hands-on experiences, including a capstone experience or internship that often will be working with businesses and organizations within the community.

Electrical Engineering Technology

Electrical engineering technology (EET) is the field that implements and applies principles of electrical engineering. With a greater focus on application and implementation, electrical engineering technologists help design, develop, test, and manufacture electrical and electronic equipment such as communication equipment, radar and industrial systems, medical monitoring equipment, control devices, and computer technology. As the largest branch of engineering technology, it includes a diverse range of disciplines including electronics, embedded systems, control systems, instrumentation, telecommunications, and power systems.

The Bachelor of Science (B.S.) degree in Electrical Engineering Technology at UW-Green Bay is a professional program that prepares students for careers in electrical engineering technology with the technical and managerial skills necessary to enter careers in the design application, installation, manufacturing, operation, and maintenance of electrical systems. Students specialize in product improvement, manufacturing, construction, and operational engineering functions. The focus of the program is the application of engineering principles to the solution of practical problems. Students will develop skills in hands on application labs and courses that explore the fundamentals of electronics, mathematics, physics, computers, and control systems. Teamwork, technical writing, and project management are also emphasized throughout the curriculum. The goal of the major is to develop well rounded engineering technologists that can adapt and succeed in a highly competitive workplace.

Students will benefit from relationships with local technical colleges, and local industry to complete a B.S. in engineering technology in the Northeast Wisconsin area. Students may start earning their degree at UW-Green Bay or local technical colleges to give maximum flexibility in degree completion. In addition, the Northeast Wisconsin Educational Resource Alliance, NEW ERA, has established advisory boards linking leaders in regional industry and participating institutions to the major. Through these relationships students will have many opportunities for internships, co-op experiences, and employment after graduation.

Electrical Engineering Technology Program Learning Outcomes

  1. Program graduates will secure and maintain employment in appropriate EET positions industry-wide and perform all functions assigned to an electrical engineering technologist.
  2. Graduates will apply their knowledge of mathematics, science, engineering technology, and computing to identify, analyze, and solve problems pertaining to design, development, and implementation of electronic systems.
  3. Graduates will exhibit a desire for life-long learning through higher education, technical training, teaching, membership in professional societies, and other developmental activities and will achieve positions of increased responsibility through these activities.
  4. Graduates will demonstrate high levels of oral and written communication skills, critical thinking, responsibility and ethical behavior, teamwork and appreciation for diversity, and leadership in their careers.
