Electronics Technology Student Learning Outcomes

Electronics Engineering Technology Program graduates will:

  • Describe the scientific principles that apply to the basic flow of electricity and explain the function of various materials used as conducting, semiconducting, and insulating devices in the construction of standard electrical/electronic circuits.
  • Identify the basic tools and test equipment used to construct, troubleshoot, and maintain standard electronic circuits and systems.
  • Explain the construction and application of standard circuit configurations and identify the component types and connections used to build functioning electronic circuits.
  • Describe the appearance and general operating principles of multiple electronic components and electrical devices such as capacitors, resistors, inductors, semiconductors, integrated circuits (ICs), generators, motors, and transformers.
  • Identify and describe the applied electronics principles used to develop circuitry and circuit-systems used for radio, television, fiber optic, laser, computer, and microprocessor devices.
  • Communicate effectively in oral, written, and graphical forms.
  • Collaborate effectively, individually and as a member of a team.
  • Demonstrate a high standard of professional ethics and are cognizant of social concerns as they relate to the practice of engineering technology.
  • Appraise their education against the new developments in the field of Electronics and engage in the process of lifelong learning.
