  7. Possess the educational background and technical skills needed to: a. obtain employment as an electronic technician, and b. continue studies toward a B.S. degree in electrical engineering as well as other engineering

Student Outcomes (SOs)

Upon successful completion of the program requirements, the graduates will be able to:

  1. Use mathematical formulas based on scientific laws and theorems as they relate to electricity, to analyze circuit problems, formulate solutions, and predict circuit behavior of both analog and digital circuits.
  2. Possess the knowledge and skills to create a digital logic circuit design as a solution to a given problem statement. Build, troubleshoot, and verify designed circuit operation. Provide full documentation on design.
  3. Build analog or digital circuits from a schematic drawing. Verify operation using test equipment such as ohmmeters, digital and analog voltmeters, ammeters, oscilloscopes, power supplies, function generators, and logic probes.
  4. Use PSPICE modeling circuit simulation software as a design tool to draw, simulate and test behavior of both analog and digital circuits.
  5. Create an electronic project using an Electronic Design Automation software to design printed circuit board(s), build the project, and ensure its proper operation.
  6. Use a high level programming language to program a microcontroller or solve a technical problem.
  7. Design a LabVIEW program to serve as a system including virtual instruments to display/store /evaluate or plot data. Create a LabVIEW program as a solution to a problem, recognize the need for continuous improvement, and demonstrate the ability to apply to design.
  8. Communicate lab experiment findings in the form of laboratory reports in a professional manner using appropriate word processor, spreadsheet, and schematic drawing software.
  9. Present experiment results or research orally to a group.
  10. Demonstrate a respect for diversity and actively participate on multicultural teams in a laboratory setting to achieve final solutions to a given task within the time allotted.
  11. Realize the responsibility of the individual technician to work in a safe and ethical manner as it relates to the electronic technician profession and demonstrate the ability recognize ethical issues and utilize the IEEE code of ethics as a guide to determine appropriate course of action in response to these issues.
