Senior Design Experience

A very important part of the education of all EET students is a Senior Design Project course that is taken during both semesters of their senior year. Design projects are required in most of the EET courses to prepare students for their capstone project. The Senior Design Project requires student teams to solve a design problem while utilizing good engineering design and reporting procedures.

Concentration in Computer Engineering Technology

Students who wish to pursue the electrical option but still gain some experience in computer and data networking applications may pursue a concentration in computer engineering technology. To achieve the concentration students are required to take 12 credits of approved courses offered by the computer engineering, information science and computer science departments for their free and technical elective choices.


Co-Operative Education

All EET students who have achieved sophomore status are encouraged to participate in a well-established co-op program that allows students to receive course credit while gaining valuable experience with an industry of their choice. The department faculty work closely with key industrial partners to maintain cooperative education opportunities that are technically challenging and offer strong economic benefits.
