A degree in Electrical Engineering Technology opens the door to many lucrative options. Upon completion of this associate's degree, you can land a job in a high-tech field or pursue a bachelor’s degree at the Milwaukee School of Engineering (MSOE). Western’s agreement with MSOE lets students who complete the program enter the Electrical Engineering program.
Electrical engineering technicians work with electrical engineers to design and maintain a variety of circuits and systems, from PC networking to industrial electronics and communications systems. A combination of classroom study and hands-on lab work leads to a final capstone project in which you will design and complete a project that includes a hardware and software component, a written report and oral presentation, budget, schematics, and a daily log of progress. General education classes in writing, speech, sociology, and psychology help prepare you for success.
