Electrical and Electronics Engineering Technology

The Bachelor of Science in Electrical and Electronics Engineering Technology (BSEET) program, prepares the student for a position as a technologist, in industries such as aerospace, computers, communications, biomedical, chemical, power etc. and many other federal engineering job positions. Students are offered a wide range of training in topics such as instrumentation, automation and controls, microelectronics, communications, motors and generators, computer applications, programming and interfacing. Moreover, the program emphasizes written and oral communications skills as well as modern methods of industrial administration and supervision. The students of this program will have to complete 129 credit hours in total to get a degree in BSEET. Program Description

A Message from Dean

A Message from the Dean   Welcome to the website of the College of Mathematics, Natural Sciences and Technology (CMNST), home of the Departments of Mathematical Sciences, Biological Sciences, Physics and Pre-Engineering, Chemistry, Computer and Information Sciences and the Army & Air Force Reserve Officer’s Training Corps.   CMNST offers a wide range of Baccalaureate, Masters and Doctoral degree programs. These are periodically reviewed to ensure that they remain strong, viable and relevant. CMNST is also the home of excellent research programs in areas such as atomic, molecular and optical physics, forensic science, neurosciences, data mining, applied mathematics and applied chemistry.  Mathematics, Natural Sciences and Technology play a critical role in many aspects of our lives and have proven to be a powerful engine for economic growth. These fields better prepare students to meet the rigor required to better understand the world around and are essential to strengthen our ability to Innovate, which, together, yield opportunities to enrich the lives of many citizens. Our college strives to provide a rich, stimulating and supportive environment in which students, faculty and staff work and study. To better prepare our students to meet the challenges of the 21st century, we provide programs and mechanisms so that students can learn fundamentals in the classroom and be engaged in various research activities in laboratories, working alongside energetic and dedicated faculty. CMNST is committed to offering opportunities for inspired and engaged teaching in an academic setting that puts students first. If you wish to talk to a faculty member, visit our laboratories, and/or join us as an undergraduate or graduate student, please feel free to contact us at 302.857.6500 or by email at Thank you for visiting our website. I wish you much success and hope to see you on our campus soon.   - Clytrice Watson, PhD, Professor of Biological Sciences and Interim Dean   Back to College Home Page
