The mission of the Electronics Engineering Technology Bachelor of Science degree program is to provide a comprehensive program of instruction that will enable graduates to obtain the knowledge and skills necessary for immediate employment and continued advancement in the field of electronics. The department will be a leader in providing career-ready candidates for various electronics technology fields. Faculty and students will engage in applied research in emerging technologies and provide professional services to their communities.
Program Educational Objectives
The Program Educational Objectives of Oregon Tech's Bachelor of Science in Electronics Engineering Technology (BSEET) program are:
- The graduates of the program will possess a strong technical background as well as analytical and problelm solving skills, and will contribute in a variety of technical roles within the electronics and high-tech industry. Within three years of graduation, BSEET graduates are expected to be employed as test engineers, characterization engineers, applications engineers, field engineers, hardware engineers, process engineers, and similar engineering technology positions within this industry.
- The graduates of the program will be working as effective team members with excellent oral and written communication skills, assuming technical and managerial leadership roles throughout their career.
- The graduates of the program will be committed to professional development and lifelong learning by engaging in professional and/or graduate education in order to stay current in their field and achieve continued professional growth.
Expected Student Learning Outcomes
The BSEET program outcomes are listed below:
- an ability to select and apply the knowledge, techniques, skills and modern tools of the discipline to broadly-defined engineering technology activities.
- 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.
- an ability to conduct standard tests and measurements; to conduct, analyze and interpret experiments; and to apply experimental results to improve processes.
- an ability to design of systems, components or processes for broadly-defined engineering technology problems appropriate to program educational objectives.
- an ability to function effectively as a member or leader on a technical team.
- an ability to identify, analyze and solve broadly-defined engineering technology problems.
- 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.
- an understanding of the need for and an ability to engage in self-directed continuing professional development.
- an understanding of and a commitment to address professional and ethical responsibilities including a respect for diversity.
- a knowledge of the impact of engineering technology solutions in a societal and global context.
- a commitment to quality, timeliness, and continuous improvement.
- the application of circuit analysis and design, computer programming, associated software, analog and digital electronics, microcomputers, and engineering standards to the building, testing, operation, and maintenance of electrical/electronic(s) systems.
- 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.
- 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.
