Electric Transportation Technology (B.S.E.T.T.)
The Bachelor of Science in Electric Transportation Technology (B.S.E.T.T.) Program prepares students for dynamic careers in a growing area of the automotive industry. Electric Transportation Technologists use the principals of science and math to solve problems in industry and business. The B.S.E.T.T. curriculum is a broad based, technically-oriented education that emphasizes the application of advanced technology to solve problems, design and develop products, and improve processes, procedures, equipment, and facilities. Possible uses for a B.S.E.T.T. degree include working with electric vehicles, hybrid electric vehicles, plug-in electric vehicles, and fuel-cell vehicles. As demand for efficiency and sustainability grow in the transportation sector, B.S.E.T.T. graduates will be able to meet the needs of industry.
Beginning Fall 2017, an admissions moratorium is in effect for this program.
This program is designed to admit students who satisfy the general undergraduate admission requirements of the University and have an associate degree with a minimum grade point average (g.p.a.) of 2.50. Students with a g.p.a. of 2.0 to 2.5 may be admitted as pre-engineering technology students, and may be transferred into the engineering technology program upon successful completion of MAT 1800 and PHY 2130 with a g.p.a. of 2.50.
Required Background: Any student deficient in any courses listed under Lower Division Technical Transfer Credit will be required to remove the deficiencies before electing any EET courses.
A Mathematics Placement Examination is required of entering students who have not already earned advanced credit in pre-calculus.
This program extends the practical and applied base of the associate degree program by means of more theoretical courses in electrical, advanced energy storage, and hybrid electric vehicle technology with additional background courses in mathematics, science, and socio-humanities. Candidates for the B.S.E.T.T. degree must earn a minimum of 130 credits, as outlined in one of the following major programs and including the University General Education Requirements. University policy allows a maximum of sixty-four semester credits transferred from community colleges to Wayne State, but students following University-approved articulation agreements with community colleges are able to exceed the maximum of sixty-four credits; a minimum of thirty semester credits must be earned from Wayne State, at least twenty-four of which must be in Division of Engineering Technology courses. All coursework must be completed in accordance with the academic procedures of the University and the College and must conform to Division academic standards.
In order to graduate, the University requires a minimum 2.0 g.p.a. in total resident credit, and the Division a minimum 2.0 g.p.a. in total coursework in the area of specialization; as well as satisfaction of all University Undergraduate General Education Requirements including satisfactory achievement of the Critical Thinking Requirement either by completion of a (CT) course or by passing the Critical Thinking Competency Examination (administered by Testing, Evaluation, and Student Life Research Services).
Program Requirements: The Bachelor of Science in Electric Transportation Technology requires 130 credits as outlined in the following curriculum.
