  • Objectives & Outcomes


The Electronics Engineering Technology Program produces graduates that are valued by industry regionally and across the globe. We are preparing people to be successful in a wide spectrum of electronic careers.

The program's educational objectives state that Electronics Engineering Technology program graduates will:

  1. Be sought after and employed by local and regional industries.
  2. Demonstrate the technical skills to support industry needs and solve problems.
  3. Demonstrate the knowledge and skill to operate across the breadth of the Electronics Engineering Technology discipline.


The Electronics Engineering Technology program is fully accredited by the Engineering Technology Accreditation Commission of ABET.

The student outcomes in their broadest classification match our program’s accreditation standards and most importantly our regional industry desires for abilities they want in their new hires. They are as follows:

  1. Apply knowledge, techniques, skills, and modern tools of mathematics, science, engineering, and technology to solve broadly-defined engineering problems appropriate to the discipline.
  2. Design systems, components, or processes meeting specified needs for broadly-defined engineering problems appropriate to the discipline.
  3. Apply written, oral, and graphical communication in broadly-defined technical and non-technical environments. Identify and use appropriate technical literature.
  4. Conduct standard tests, measurements, and experiments and analyze and interpret the results to improve processes.
  5. Function effectively as a member as well as a leader on technical teams.
