The Electrical Engineering & Renewable Energy (EERE) department at Oregon Tech offers the following programs at two of the Oregon Tech campuses, the Klamath Falls campus in southern Oregon, and the Wilsonville campus, on the south end of the Portland metro area:
Bachelor of Science in Electronics Engineering Technology
Master of Science in Renewable Energy Engineering
Electronics Engineering Technology
The curriculum, content, and rigor of our ABET accredited Bachelor of Science in Electronics Engineering Technology closely matches our BS in Electrical Engineering, but has been designed to offer excellent transferability and degree completion opportunities for students who have already completed lower division coursework in Electronics Engineering Technology, Microelectronics Technology, or related technology programs.
The program is designed to prepare graduates to assume engineering and technology positions in the electronics industry. Recent graduates have been employed at companies such as MAXIM, Tektronix, and Intel. The program also provides a solid preparation for students intending to continue to graduate school to pursue masters degrees in engineering, engineering management, MBAs, and JDs.
The BSEE program is offered at our Wilsonville campus. To accommodate working professionals, the BSEET courses are also offered in the evening in the Portland westside (at the Willow Creek Center in Beaverton).
A student who graduates from our ABET accredited BSEET degree or completes all the BSEET requirements may obtain a second Bachelor of Science degree in Electrical Engineering with a Minor in Applied Math from Oregon Tech as a Post-Bachelor by satisfying the additional courses required for the BSEE degree. The minimum requirements to obtain a second BS degree from the same institution are 36 credits. Completion of the BSEE degree requirements for Oregon Tech BSEET graduates involves taking additional coursework in Electrical Engineering from the EERE Department, and additional Mathematics and Science courses as specified on the BSEET/BSEE Advising Guide.
MS Electrical and Computer Engineering
Through a partnership between Oregon Tech and Portland State University, BSEET graduates have the option to complete the MS Electrical and Computer Engineering at PSU. In order to gain direct admission to the MS ECE at PSU, BSEET students are required to complete three specified upper-division technical electives from PSU’s ECE department at the Willow Creek Center with a grade of B or above in each course (these courses will be used to fulfill their BSEET technical elective requirements), graduate from the BSEET program at Oregon Tech with a minimum 3.0 cumulative GPA, meet all PSU graduate admission requirements in effect at the time of admission to PSU, and begin the MSECE program at PSU within one year of completing OIT's BSEET degree
Renewable Energy Engineering Emphasis
Students can obtain a BSEET degree with an Emphasis in Renewable Energy Engineering by taking their Technical Electives and Senior Project in Renewable Energy Engineering (REE). This option is ideal for transfer students from AAS degrees related to Renewable Energy Technologies (e.g. Renewable Energy Engineering Technology, Renewable Energy Technology, etc).
