Preparing students for effective careers in electrical engineering, this program covers the design and operational characteristics of electrical circuits, electrical machinery and electronics equipment.
Bachelor's-level studies pave the way for jobs in electrical engineering design, as well as pursuing advanced degrees.
There are no special requirements to apply. In order to enroll in the program, all you need to do is select Electrical Engineering Technology as your major when you apply to Bluefield State College.
Your advisor will work with you throughout your academic journey to make sure you're on track to earn your degree. Receiving the B.S. in Electrical Engineering Technology requires completing the following courses:
After receiving your B.S. in Electrical Engineering Technology degree, you may visit the West Virginia Board of Registration for Professional Engineers to take the required exam and meet any service requirements in order to be registered as a professional engineer.
