Electrical engineering technology (EET) is an engineering technology discipline that implements and applies the principles of electrical engineering. It is a field of study which focuses on the applications of engineering and modern technology, rather than the theoretical. EET is a specialized discipline that has more focus on application, theory, and applied design, and implementation, while electrical engineering may focus more of a generalized emphasis on theory and conceptual design. It lies in the occupational spectrum between the craftsman and the engineer at the end of the spectrum closest to the engineer.
At PUTR, the Bachelor of Science degree in Electrical Engineering Technology (EET) integrates applied and hands-on learning with theoretical and conceptual curriculum. It provides a comprehensive study of electrical principles and practices with emphasis on the application of specific engineering techniques. It is a four-year dual degree program. which prepares students for application oriented engineering technology careers in power generation & distribution, electrical systems, automation systems, instrumentation and various other control systems. This program is designed to meet the transfer and continuing education needs of associate degree graduates in EET or other related disciplines as well as to address the industry needs for graduates with sound and current skills in Electrical Engineering Technology. Throughout the program, students will also gain experience in safety practices, safety standards and equipment, technical writing and CAD.
The department offers following dual degree program with Tianjin University of Sciences and Technology, China:
