Electrical Engineering Tech Prospective Students

Letter to Students

Thanks for your interest in the Electrical Engineering Technology Concentration at LeTourneau University. Electrical engineering technology is an exciting field and one which is impacting many of the critical technologies of the 21st Century – computing, telecommunications, transportation, consumer electronics, and manufacturing.

Engineering Technology graduates with the electrical concentration use mathematics and science, particularly related to electricity, magnetism, and light, to develop systems for communications, computing, power generation, motor control, navigation, imaging, and security. Graduates also develop electronic circuits for controlling everything from appliances to vehicles. LeTourneau's B.S. in Engineering Technology degree with an electrical concentration is designed to prepare you to apply the principles you will learn to provide for the needs of society, specifically involving electronics, electricity, and energy conversion.

All students in the electrical engineering technology concentration have both theory and laboratory experience in dc and ac electricity, electronics, instrumentation and controls, digital electronics, microcontrollers, electrical machinery, and communications. You'll have the opportunity to use modern test equipment in the labs, to work on projects for national competitions, and to be part of a design team that develops a system from initial proposal to layout, fabrication, testing, and reporting.

A bachelor's degree in engineering technology (B.S.E.T) with an electrical concentration provides the foundation that you will need to enter many different career fields. Graduates of our program have job titles such as: Electrical Engineer, Electronics Engineer, Systems Engineer, Sales Engineer, Manufacturing Engineer, and Service Engineer. It is our goal that our graduates make a real contribution to their profession and society, and bring glory to God through their professional and personal lives.

I encourage you to visit the campus to see our facilities and to meet our faculty and students.

May the Lord bless you in your future.
