B.S.E.T. Electrical Engineering Technology

OVERVIEW OF THE B.S.E.T. ELECTRICAL ENGINEERING TECHNOLOGY PROGRAMME

Students who pursue the B.S.E.T. programme in Electrical Engineering Technology here at The College of The Bahamas (COB) are exposed to a wide spectrum of topics  such as dc and ac electrical circuits, analog and digital electronic circuits and systems, microprocessors, analog and digital communications, electronic controls, electrical motors and generators, electrical installation, digital signal processing, and computer programming.

These theoretical courses are supported by computer simulation and computational software, such as PSpice and Matlab (or a Matlab clone), and practical labs.

The culmination of the programme is a senior capstone course, which stresses teamwork, design, construction, and written and oral presentation skills.

ENTRANCE REQUIREMENTS FOR THE B.S.E.T. ELECTRICAL ENGINEERING TECHNOLOGY PROGRAMME

The entrance requirements are identical to The College's (COB’s) minimum general entrance requirements, as described here.  However, prospective high school students are encouraged to include subjects in their portfolio at high school that are appropriate for direct entry into first-year college-level courses in Science & Technology – namely, English, Mathematics, Physics, Graphical Communication and Computer Technology. Success in these subjects at BGCSE will obviate the need to make up deficiencies in Pre-Tech or College Prep at the COB and ensure timely graduation.


WHERE CAN GRADUATES OF THIS PROGRAMME POTENTIALLY FIND EMPLOYMENT?

Some of our students have found employment at BEC, BTC, Cable Bahamas, TV and radio stations, casinos and hotels, electrical installation companies, electronic repair companies, Airport Authority, electronic security companies, hospitals and computer repair companies.
