INTRODUCTION

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 PTUT, 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 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.

Mission of the Department

The Department of Electrical Engineering Technology aims to train students by imparting quality technology education which will develop professional competency in graduates to serve the national and international organizations. The overall goal of our department is to expose students to the scientific processes pertinent to the electrical industry.

 Program Educational Objectives (PEOs)

PEO 1: Apply electrical engineering technology knowledge to identify and address the technical and societal problems.

PEO 2: Enhance intellectual and analytical abilities in taking initiatives and/or develop innovative ideas for technological and professional growth in electrical and allied disciplines.

PEO 3: The graduates demonstrating professional ethics and knowledge progression individually and in a team.
