Program Educational Objectives
Program Educational Objectives (PEOs) describe the attributes that we desire our graduates to possess 3 to 5 years after graduation. The BS degree program in Electrical Engineering Technology will prepare graduates with the technical and managerial skills necessary to enter careers in the design, application, installation, manufacturing, operation and/or maintenance of electrical/electronic(s) systems. Graduates are well prepared for development and implementation of electrical/electronic(s) systems.
- Graduates of the program will be well prepared for their first position in their field of study.
- Graduates of the program will be successfully employed in a degree related job or pursing an additional degree.
- Employers will be satisfied with the performance of the program graduates' skills including: professional ethics and effective teamwork and communication in a global professional environment.
- Graduates of the program will be satisfied with their education and show the ability to continuously improve their skills and professionally adapt to changes in the field.
These program educational objectives reflect the commitment of the School of Technology to deliver quality programs.
Student Outcomes (SO) capture the desired attributes we try to impart to our students through the curriculum and academic experience.
