Electrical Engineering Technology


Why study Electrical Engineering Technology?

As a student in the Electrical Engineering Technology B.S. program at the University of Cincinnati, you will gain the knowledge to apply the principles of electrical engineering to electrical components and computers to improve and modernize life for all. Electrical Engineering is a robust field with opportunities in all areas where electrical technology and computers exist: the design and installation of all types of electrical instrumentation as well as computers and their networks. 

At UC College of Engineering and Applied Science (CEAS), it’s all about you – we strive to help develop you into the person employers want to hire. Throughout your time with us, you will:

  • Gain hands-on training in the fields of analog and digital circuits, electric power systems, and industrial control
  • Take courses that cover the communications, instrumentation, analog and digital controls, microprocessors and controllers, and digital signal processing
  • Customize your experience with more than 600 organizations, including Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineering, the Association of Computing Machinery, CubeCats, and Robotics Club, BattleBots Club, and more
  • Build an impressive resume and professional network through our nationally-recognized co-op program at companies such as ASIC Corporation, Mitsubishi Electric Automotive America, Cincinnati Test Systems, Kohrs Lonnemann Heil Engineers, and General Electric

Admission Requirements

Admission criteria for this program vary based on a comprehensive review of the relative strength of courses, academic performance, co-curricular activities, and supplemental information provided through the application.
First-year students applying to this program should also have completed the following college preparatory subjects:

  • English (4 units)
  • Mathematics, including algebra, geometry and statistics or trigonometry. Pre-calculus is highly recommended. (4 units)
  • Science, including Chemistry or Physics (3 units)
  • Social sciences (3 units)
  • Electives (5 units)

Careers in Electrical Engineering Technology are in high demand. Graduates are well prepared for entry-level professional industrial positions. Possible career paths include:

  • Production engineer
  • Process engineer
  • Electrical design engineer
  • Electronics support engineer
  • Controls technician

At the University of Cincinnati, we believe that learning is doing and doing is learning. That’s why we invented the first ever Cooperative Education (Co-op) program in 1906. Today, it’s the largest of its kind in the United States. The Co-op model—which places students in full-time employment in their field—supplements the classroom curriculum to make for an educational experience like no other.

Transfer students in good standing from accredited colleges and universities will be considered for admission to the college at the first, second and third-year levels. The degree requirement of professional practice experience normally precludes acceptance beyond the third-year level. For further detailed information such as required grade point average, please refer to the Transfer Students page.

Students changing majors from outside programs or colleges within UC, please visit the Transition Students page.

For additional information on international requirements, visit UC’s International Admissions page.

Application Deadlines

First-year students must begin the program during fall semester. Applications are accepted on a rolling basis. High school students who wish to be considered for scholarships must apply by December 1 of their senior year in high school.

The University of Cincinnati and all regional campuses are accredited by the Higher Learning Commission.

The Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering Technology program is accredited by the Engineering Technology Accreditation Commission of ABET, https://www.abet.org, under the General Criteria and the Electrical/Electronic(s) Engineering Technology and Similarly Named Programs Program Criteria
