Electrical Engineering Technology - Four-Year Academic Plan of Study

Electrical Engineering Technology Academic Plan

Program Summary

  • Credit Hours: 128
  • Concentrations: None
  • Declaring the Major: Minimum GPA of 2.0 required. Prerequisite courses typically include: MATH 1100/1103 or higher, PHYS 1101 with laboratory, and 9 or more credits of ETGR, ETCE, ETME, ELET, or CMET courses completed with a 2.0 or higher
    • Change of Major forms are accepted year round; orientation/advising sessions are required for new students.
  • Advising (For the Major): Required upon admission to the major and before each semester. Assigned advisors hold group advising sessions, followed by individual advising by appointment.
  • Advising (For General Education): By Student Services Specialists in the department.
  • Minimum Grades/GPA: GPA of 2.0 in the major required for graduation. Grades of C or better required in all freshman level courses, as shown on Suggested Plan of Study.
  • Teacher Licensure: No.
  • Evening Classes Available: Some upper division (junior/senior) classes are available late afternoon or evening on a rotating basis. It is highly unlikely that students would be able to complete degree requirements through evening courses alone.
  • Weekend Classes Available: No.

Other Information: Students who complete an Associate in Applied Science Degree (AAS) in a related field before enrolling at UNC Charlotte are eligible for the Electrical Engineering Technology 2+2 Program, which allows students to complete the BSET degrees with two additional years of coursework. The ETCM Department also offers a Distance Education option for students interested in earning the BSET in Electrical Engineering Technology. This program, which is set up on a part-time basis, is designed to meet the academic needs of individuals who currently hold an AAS in an appropriate field of study but cannot attend classes on campus during regular semesters.
