UW-Oshkosh’s programs in Electrical, Environmental, and Mechanical Engineering Technology are accredited by the Engineering Technology Accreditation Commission of ABET, www.abet.org
 
ABET accreditation is an intensive self-assessment and continuous improvement process. By promoting educational best practices, ABET accredited programs have demonstrated their ability to provide the technical and professional skills their graduates need to succeed while also supporting the emerging workforce needs.
 
Employers can be confident that graduates hired from an ABET accredited program have met the requirements needed to enter their profession.

Program Educational Objectives (PEOs)

Electrical Engineering Technology PEOs

These Program Educational Outcomes describe the qualities and circumstances that we expect graduates of our program to embody 3-5 years after earning their degrees. The Bachelor of Science Degree with a major in Electrical Engineering Technology is founded on a well-rounded, liberal education program that will prepare graduates with the skills to succeed and adapt to change in today’s rapidly evolving workplace.

 

  1. Graduates will be employed in a degree-related field and begin to assume greater responsibility and leadership within their company;
  2. Graduates will communicate effectively in oral, written, and visual modes and exhibit ethical behavior, professionalism and a respect for diversity as they pursue a career in industry;
  3. Graduates will apply their critical thinking skills and knowledge of engineering and technology to identify, analyze, and solve problems during the design, development, implementation and improvement phases of projects;
  4. Graduates will pursue lifelong learning and continuous improvement through additional training, active membership in professional societies, and other high quality developmental endeavors.
