Electrical/Electronic Engineering Technology (BS)

What is Electrical/Electronic Engineering Technology? 

The bachelor's degree in electrical electronic engineering technology (BSEET) prepares students for diverse and dynamic careers in industry. Electrical/electronic engineering technologists use the principals of science and math to solve problems in industry and business, both in the public and privatize sectors. They work alongside engineers, independently, as well as in a supervisory capacity. This field is in touch with a wide and growing range of applications of technology, and therefore has many applications in today's workforce.

What can I do with a Electrical/Electronic Engineering Technology Degree? 

Graduates of baccalaureate engineering technology programs have been very successful in obtaining professional employment relevant to their education. Wayne State engineering technology graduates are employed in:

Manufacturing engineering Maintenance Field engineering
Production engineering Quality control Design
Marketing Product testing Technical supervision

How do I get started?

  • Join Wayne State Transfer Pathways
  • Schedule a WSU Transfer Success Appointment         
  • Meet with your academic advisors and track your academic progress 


  • The pathway allows multiple associate degree options with the flexibility to customize your degree path. The minimum eligibility to participate in the Wayne State Transfer Pathways is a cumulative GPA of 2.5 or above, Michigan Transfer Agreement (MTA), and an associate degree (earned or Reverse Transfer).  
  • All college-level (non-developmental), non-duplicated courses with a 2.0 (C) grade point average (GPA) or above will be considered for transfer credit.  Earned credit will transfer as 1) direct course equivalency, 2) major/department credit, or 3) elective credit. Credits not earned at the community college will need to be taken at WSU.  
  • These pathways do not replace the importance of community college and Wayne State academic advising. The pathway provides a general roadmap to degree completion.
