Program Outcomes

EET Program Education Objectives (PEO)

  1. Produce graduates who are prepared for a of successful professional careers or graduate school.
  2. Produce graduates who promote and comply with professional ethics codes and understand societal issues.
  3. Produce graduates who are satisfied with their education and show ability to continuously improve and professionally adapt to changes in the field.
  4. Produce graduates whose employers are satisfied with their performance, team work, communication skills, leadership skills and general base of knowledge.

EET Student Outcomes

a. an ability to select and apply the knowledge, techniques, skills, and modern tools of the discipline to broadly-defined engineering technology activities;

b. 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;

c. an ability to conduct standard tests and measurements; to conduct, analyze, and interpret experiments; and to apply experimental results to improve processes;

d. an ability to design systems, components, or processes for broadly-defined engineering technology problems appropriate to program educational objectives;

e. an ability to function effectively as a member or leader on a technical team;

f. an ability to identify, analyze, and solve broadly-defined engineering technology problems;

g. 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;

h. an understanding of the need for and an ability to engage in self-directed continuing professional development;

i. an understanding of and a commitment to address professional and ethical responsibilities including a respect for diversity;

j. a knowledge of the impact of engineering technology solutions in a societal and global context; and

k. a commitment to quality, timeliness, and continuous improvement


These program criteria apply to engineering technology programs that include electrical or electronic(s) or similar modifiers in their titles.

a. 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;

b. the applications of physics or chemistry to electrical/electronic(s) circuits in a rigorous mathematical environment at or above the level of algebra and trigonometry;

c. the ability to analyze, design, and implement control systems, instrumentation systems, communications systems, computer systems, or power systems;

d. the ability to apply project management techniques to electrical/electronic(s) systems;

e. the ability to utilize statistics/probability, transform methods, discrete mathematics, or applied differential equations in support of electrical/electronic(s) systems.


A graduate may work for a small or large manufacturing company usually concentrating in the area of automation and electrical control. Graduates may be responsible for all areas of control from planning meetings to the design and purchase of the controls, programming of computers and plc's (programmable logic controllers), start-up of the system including motors, motor controls and all automatic equipment. Engineering Technologists are expected to understand overall concepts of the process they will be working with and be responsible for all costs associated with projects under their control. While electrical concepts are assumed as necessary, interface with mechanical systems require graduates to have a good mechanical hands-on aptitude as well. 

Electrical Engineering Technologists are among the most well rounded personnel of their engineering environment and are highly employable, even during difficult economic times. 

EET graduates also have the opportunity to practice their teaching skills in the classroom. They are often called on to teach maintenance personnel about a control system they recently installed.    Good documentation is required on most electrical jobs.
Therefore, completeness and thoroughness associated with good communications skills are highly desired traits in this profession.
