The Bachelor of Science Degree in Electronic Engineering Technology is designed to prepare graduates for employment in a variety of fields, including consumer electronics, telecommunications, and semiconductors - wherever there is a need for the design, testing, and manufacturing of hardware and software for all things electrical. The curriculum focuses on the application of electronics principles and critical thinking to the solution of practical problems. Students learn to use math and computers to solve circuit problems, they learn about equipment testing, and they learn how to apply the technologies they learn and the fundamentals of electronics to address real-world problems. The program also prepares highly motivated students who are interested in continuing their studies to pursue an advanced degree in Electrical Engineering at UMass Lowell.

The amount of time it takes for a student to complete this degree will depend upon the individual student's course load. Students can also earn the Associate's Degree in Electronic Engineering Technology (64 credits) as they pursue the Bachelor's Degree in Electronic Engineering Technology (127 credits). Many of the courses taken toward this degree can be applied toward a related certificate program, allowing students to earn additional credentials as they pursue their degree.

Note: Although some of the courses in this program are available online, the majority of the courses are only available on campus.
