Electrical Engineering Technology

The electrical engineering principles you will learn can be applied in a wide range of careers, including biomedical, green energy, transportation, communications, entertainment and manufacturing. Our graduates have played a part in scientific advancements in a variety of industries. They have impacted lives and improved everyday uses of technology and learn to work with microcontrollers, Field Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGA), Digital Signal Processors (DSP), embedded Systems-On-a-Chip (SOC), embedded workstations, and distributed computing platforms and more.

Students in this major can apply to participate in a five-year combined bachelor's/master's degree program in electrical engineering technology.

The electrical engineering technology program is accredited by the Engineering Technology Accreditation Commission of ABET, www.abet.org.

The Purdue Polytechnic Institute is one of 10 academic colleges at Purdue University. The Polytechnic specializes in team-based labs where you’ll test ideas, take things apart and put them back together — only better. You’ll learn side-by-side with professors who have worked in the industry and thrive on combining theory, imagination and real-world application. In this innovative environment, you'll learn by doing - gaining deep technical knowledge and applied skills in your chosen discipline coupled with problem-solving, critical-thinking, communication and leadership skills employers desire.
