Program Educational Objectives

These Program Educational Outcomes describe the qualities and circumstances that we expect graduates of our program to embody 3-5 years after earning their degrees. The Bachelor of Science degree with a major in Electrical Engineering Technology is founded on a well-rounded, liberal education program that will prepare graduates with the skills to succeed and adapt to change in today’s rapidly evolving workplace.

 

  1. Graduates will be employed in a degree-related field and begin to assume greater responsibility and leadership within their company;
  2. Graduates will communicate effectively in oral, written, and visual modes and exhibit ethical behavior, professionalism and a respect for diversity as they pursue a career in industry;
  3. Graduates will apply their critical thinking skills and knowledge of engineering and technology to identify, analyze, and solve problems during the design, development, implementation and improvement phases of projects;
  4. Graduates will pursue lifelong learning and continuous improvement through additional training, active membership in professional societies, and other high quality developmental endeavors.
Program Criteria
  • The application of circuit analysis and design, computer programming, associated software, analog and digital electronics, and microcomputers, and engineering standards to the building, testing, operation, and maintenance of electrical/electronic(s) systems;
  • The application of natural sciences and mathematics at or above the level of algebra and trigonometry to the building, testing, operation, and maintenance of electrical/electronic systems;
  • The ability to analyze, design, and implement one or more of the following: control systems, instrumentation systems, communications systems, computer systems, or power systems;
  • The ability to apply project management techniques to electrical/electronic(s) systems; and
  • The ability to utilize differential and integral calculus, as a minimum, to characterize the performance of electrical/electronic systems.
Student Outcomes
  • An ability to select and apply the knowledge, techniques, skills, and modern tools of the discipline to broadly-defined engineering technology activities;
  • An ability to select and apply a knowledge of mathematics, science, engineering, and technology to engineering technology problems that require the application of principles and applied procedures or methodologies;
  • An ability to conduct standard tests and measurements; to conduct, analyze, and interpret experiments; and to apply experimental results to improve processes;
  • An ability to design systems, components, or processes for broadly-defined engineering technology problems appropriate to program educational objectives;
  • An ability to function effectively as a member or leader on a technical team;
  • An ability to identify, analyze, and solve broadly-defined engineering technology problems;
  • An ability to apply written, oral, and graphical communication in both technical and non-technical environments; and an ability to identify and use appropriate technical literature;
  • An understanding of the need for and an ability to engage in self-directed continuing professional development;
  • An understanding of and a commitment to address professional and ethical responsibilities including a respect for diversity;
  • A knowledge of the impact of engineering technology solutions in a societal and global context; and
  • A commitment to quality, timeliness, and continuous improvement.
