Engineering technicians use the principles and theories of science, engineering, and mathematics to solve technical problems in a variety of engineering fields. Engineering technicians generally have 2 year associates degrees. A lot of techs just install or help engineers with the hands-on start-up or troubleshooting of systems & equipment.

Electrical engineering technologists assist engineers in the design, drafting, and technical skills to implement engineering ideas. EET's generally possess a 4-year bachelors degree. Although the term can be somewhat misleading, someone with a BS in Electrical Engineering Technology can obtain the same job as someone with a BSEE. The EET degree usually focuses on the implimentation of design, while EE focuses on design and theory. The EE degree generally contains higher level math courses than the EET degree.
