Electrical Engineering Technology Objectives and Outcomes
The Electrical Engineering Technology (EET) Program is committed to achieving key Program Educational Objectives and Program Outcomes. These operational objectives and outcomes provide the basis from which the program assures the integrity of the academic program and the capabilities of its graduates. They are listed as follows:
Program Educational Objectives
PEO1. Provide industry with well qualified technicians for entry level positions in the Electrical Engineering Technology field.
PEO2. Provide transferability for students who are interested in baccalaureate degree programs at SUNY Canton or other institutions with related programs.
Electrical Engineering Technology Program Outcomes: Each Electrical Engineering Technology graduate will demonstrate the following attributes by the time of graduation:
- The ability to produce written documents and deliver oral-visual presentations using current word processing software (i.e. Microsoft Office suite and other presentation media).
- The ability to produce Computer Aided Design (CAD) drawings and schematics utilizing vertical construction and two dimensional techniques.
- Knowledge of the basic principles and applications of DC &AC circuit analysis, transformers, rotating DC & AC machines, and single phase and three phase power distribution systems.
- Knowledge of the basic principles and applications of digital and analog electronics, microprocessors/microcontrollers together with assembly and Basic programming languages.
- Knowledge of the basic principles and applications of programmable logic controllers (PLC) together with ladder logic and computer-automated control systems.
- Effective teamwork skills as demonstrated by the design and fabrication of student team projects and the presentation of their accomplishments through oral and written reports
- The ability to use test equipment to effectively diagnose and correct problems and faults in industrial power and electronic/digital systems.
- The ability to design, fabricate, and solder components to, and test a printed circuit board for proper operation.
- (After Fall 2009) Knowledge of the basic telecommunication concepts, including Amplitude and Frequency modulation, digital multiplexing schemes, transmission mediums (copper, fiber, and satellite communications), and antenna principles.
