The Bachelor of Science in Engineering Technology with concentrations in Electronics and Instrumentation builds upon the skills developed at the associate level and prepares graduates to fill supervisory or technical expert positions in industry, as well as providing a background for graduate study. To this end, the concentration is designed to help graduates achieve the educational objectives listed below. With appropriate work experience and desire, graduates will be able to:
- fill more technically demanding and supervisory positions in the electronics or instrumentation (process control ) fields; and
- pursue graduate study in managerial or technical fields.
To prepare them for such positions, students will meet the following program outcomes in addition to those given above for the associate level program. By the time they graduate, students will be able to:
- Make purchasing decisions for current electronic and instrumentation equipment.
- Troubleshoot existing programs and create new programs for use in electronics and process systems in particular those using programmable logic controllers and higher-level computer language programming for microcontrollers.
- Appreciate the requirements of employees and supervisors in an industrial workplace.
