Program Educational Objectives:
The program educational objectives (PEO) of the Engineering Technology program are
to produce graduates who, within five years of graduation, are prepared with the depth
of knowledge, breadth of experiences, and an attitude of professionalism that will
enable them to:
Attain gainful employment in a related technical field providing personal and professional
Pursue professional development such as additional formal education, certifications
Attain increasing levels of responsibility and leadership in their own chosen field;
Apply a depth of knowledge and ability to manage, design, develop, analyze, and/or
implement technical projects, demonstrating a quality of performance necessary to
succeed in engineering technology careers.
Students will be able to demonstrate an appropriate mastery of the knowledge, techniques,
skills, and modern tools in the industrial application of computers, electronics,
or manufacturing principles.
By progression through required coursework, students will demonstrate the ability
to effectively use information acquisition tools, implement technology, and incorporate
emerging technology into problem solutions as they adapt to new methods and techniques
presented in the coursework.
Through coursework and laboratory exercises, students will develop the ability to
conduct experiments as appropriate to the Engineering Technology program. These exercises
require the collection and analysis of data pertinent to exercise objectives, and
further interpretation and application of the experimental results to the improvement
of practical systems, devices, and processes.
Creativity and innovation comes from the free association of ideas to solve problems
that have not been solved by following current methods. The student will demonstrate
the ability to apply systematic methods and techniques to generate original solutions.
The ability to work effectively in multidisciplinary groups; can identify the different
roles group members can fulfill, recognize and respect different personality styles,
display leadership qualities, and reconcile differences.
The ability to apply a systematic approach to the solution of problems. This includes
the ability to identify and analyze a problem from various perspectives and concisely
define its scope; propose alternative solutions and techniques; assess viability of
potential solutions; and to anticipate the impact of proposed problem solutions.
The ability to produce effective written documents, deliver effective oral presentations,
develop, prepare and interpret effective visual information and communicate effectively
with a specific audience or client.
The ability to develop and pursue a plan for further professional development and
a pursuit of learning activities to achieve depth of knowledge in chosen field of
work. Is able to engage in self-directed learning and able to self-assess their learning.
Develops an increasing knowledge of current and emerging technologies.
Understanding of the expectations and responsibilities of a technologist employed
in the public or private sector. Identify the professional and ethical standards
that apply to the field of engineering technology.
Understand the impact of technologies on society through examination of various legal,
international, social, and commercial issues. Understands and values cultural diversity;
is aware of international variations in approaches, and globalization of business.
Understands and can apply fundamental principles and processes of contemporary quality
management techniques. Understands and can apply the concepts of continuous improvement,
and the importance of timeliness.
