The Electrical Engineering Technology (EET) program provides the broad skill set required for entry-level success and long-term progression in the dynamic career areas in electrical engineering technology.
Students in all concentrations receive a core education in basic electrical circuits, computer-oriented hardware including electronics, microprocessors and digital systems, and electrical power and machinery, and they focus on their chosen specialization through junior and senior courses in communications, digital circuits and systems, advanced PLCs, control systems, smart grids, alternative energies, microcomputer-based design, and local area networks. At course level, students are also exposed to current cyber-security issues related to various systems they study.
Accredited by the Engineering Technology Accreditation Commission of ABET
Program culminates with a senior project that integrates course work with a practical project assignment in the student's area of interest
Graduates can sit for the National Council of Examiners for Engineering and Surveying (NCEES) license examinations such as the Fundamentals of Engineering (FE) and the Professional Engineering (PE)
All upper division courses are offered both on campus and through distance learning
Graduates from this major have gone to work at
First course in an upper division sequence in digital electronics circuits and systems. Topics include a comprehensive treatment of Boolean algebra, computer arithmetic, and applications of digital integrated circuits. Prerequisites: EET 120, EET 125, EET 205, and EET 210.
A study of synchronous and asynchronous AC machinery, DC machinery, power distribution systems,and instrumentation. Prerequisite: EET 200 or EET 350.
Overview of communications systems including both time and frequency domain analysis. Topics include spectrum analysis, analog modulation methods, digital modulation methods, receiver design, and cellular technology. Virtual laboratory projects utilizing simulation software. Prerequisites: EET 300 and EET 305.
Students entering the Bachelor of Science in Engineering Technology program in Electrical Engineering Technology should meet the minimum university admission requirements (Undergraduate Admission)
For completion of the EET major, a student must have a minimum overall cumulative grade point average of 2.00 in all courses required for the major, complete at least 30 hours of course work at Old Dominion University through on- or off-campus instruction, and complete an upper-level writing intensive course. To satisfy the upper-division general education requirement, students are required to complete any minor in the College of Engineering and Technology or the College of Sciences.
Estimated rates for the 2021-22 academic year. Rates are subject to change. Anyone that is not a current Virginia resident will be charged non-resident rates. That includes international students.
