Electrical Engineering Technology Major (B.S.)


Engineering technology requires the application of engineering and scientific knowledge and methods combined with technical skills in support of engineering activities. Graduates may work in a variety of areas including engineering design, manufacturing, field service, testing, and sales and may work in management positions related to engineering, manufacturing, and computer technology.

The UNH Manchester BS in Electrical Engineering Technology is accredited by the Engineering Technology Accreditation Commission (ETAC) of ABET, www.abet.org.

The programs at UNH Manchester are designed to meet the needs of both full- and part-time students with a mix of classes scheduled during the day and in the evening.

For information about the electrical engineering technology program (EET), contact the B.S. engineering technology program coordinator, Sean Tavares. For admissions information, contact the Office of Admissions at (603) 641-4150.
