B.S.-EET educational objectives

The below B.S.-EET educational objectives describe the expected accomplishments of the B.S.-EET graduates during their first few years after graduation. The main objective of the B.S. in the Electrical/Electronic Engineering Technology Program is to provide an outstanding curriculum and learning environment so that, following completion of the program, B.S.-EET graduates will be able to:

  • Attain gainful employment and practice successfully in an electrical or electronic related engineering technology profession;
  • Remain technically current and adapt to rapidly changing technologies through continuous learning and self-improvement;
  • Demonstrate independent thinking and function effectively in teams to solve open-ended problems in an industrial environment; and
  • Communicate effectively and perform ethically and professionally in business, industry and society.

B.S.-EET student outcomes

In order to provide a strong foundation for B.S.-EET graduates to accomplish the educational objectives, the Division of Engineering Technology has established the following student outcomes, which describe the competencies that B.S.-EET students should possess by the time they graduate:

  • An ability to select and apply the knowledge, techniques, skills and modern tools of their disciplines 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, ability 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 communicate effectively regarding broadly-defined engineering technology activities;
  • 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.
