The primary goal of Capitol College's electronics engineering technology program is to produce graduates in the field of electronics who are prepared to design, manage, install and maintain electrical systems in the workplace with little additional preparation or training.
Graduates will be able to employ theoretical principles, mathematical techniques and software tools to analyze computer and electronic system performance and capability.
Graduates will be able to effectively communicate their ideas in both written and oral form with the understanding that communication is a cooperative process.
Graduates will be prepared to work in the groups and distributed teams.
Graduates will be able to design circuits for both digital and analog applications, including programmable systems.
Life-long Learning Objective
Graduates will recognize that life-long learning is essential to the ongoing process of professional and personal development.
Graduates will be able to take an electronic design project from inception to completion including recognizing the problem and designing a solution, upon which they can build, test, modify and verify that the solution meets system requirements.
Professional Ethics Objective
Graduates will have an understanding of professional and ethical responsibilities, as well as an understanding of the possible social, economic, cultural and environmental impact of their engineering solutions in a global context.
Graduates will have strong information literacy and will possess the ability to know when information is needed, how to use it, and how and where to retrieve it.
Graduates will able to use modern circuits testing equipment, including computer based systems, in maintaining and modifying existing electrical systems.
Upon graduation, graduates will have:
an appropriate mastery of the knowledge, techniques, skills and modern tools of the discipline of electrical engineering technology
the ability to apply current knowledge and adapt to emerging applications of mathematics, science, engineering and technology
the ability to conduct, analyze and interpret experiments and apply experimental results to improve processes
the ability to apply creativity in the design of systems, components or processes appropriate to the electrical engineering technology program's objectives
the ability to function effectively in teams
the ability to identify, analyze and solve technical problems
the ability to communicate effectively
a recognition of the need for, and an ability to engage in, life-long learning
the ability to understand professional, ethical and social responsibilities
a respect for diversity and a knowledge of contemporary professional, societal and global issues
a commitment to quality, timeliness and continuous improvement
In addition to:
the ability to analyze, design, and implement control systems, instrumentation systems, communications systems, computer systems, or power systems.
the ability to apply project management techniques to electrical/electronic(s) systems.
the ability to utilize statistics/probability, transform methods, discrete mathematics, or applied differential equations in support of electrical/electronic(s) systems.
