6.  Graduates stay current professionally.

Electrical Concentration with Robotics option
Program Educational Objectives
7.  As project team members, graduates recognize opportunities and create solutions using electronics technology in a wide range of applications and provide leadership in developing solutions to industrial problems.
8.  Graduates with specialized backgrounds in electronics design and implement systems for communication, control, and other applications to meet needs in the workplace.     
9.  Graduates with specialized backgrounds in robotics design and integrate automated cells for industrial applications.
Electrical  Concentration Program Outcomes
"Program outcomes...describe what students are expected to know and be able to do by the time of graduation," and "relate to the skills, knowledge, and behaviors that students acquire in their matriculation through the program" (TAC-ABET Criteria for Accrediting Engineering Technology Programs).
1.  Students analyze problems, plan and conduct tests, interpret and use test results to develop solutions.
2.  Students create and implement solutions integrating people, productivity software and equipment.
3.  Students communicate information in written, oral, and graphical forms.
4.  Student work as a team to deliver results in a timely fashion.
5.  Students recognize the importance of quality and the need for continuous improvement.
6.  Students are aware of ethical, social, environmental, and diversity issues; globalization; and the need for lifelong learning.
Electrical Concentration with Robotics option
Program Educational Outcomes
In addition to the outcomes stated above, electrical concentration with robotics option will demonstrate the following.
7.  Students have the ability to use mathematics at the level of basic calculus, statistics, and physics as well as knowledge of analog and digital electronics in the design, construction, and testing of circuits involved in control, communication, and other electronic systems.
8.  Students create solutions, manage projects, analyze, design operate, and maintain automation systems at the levels of individual robots, work-cells and other electrical systems.
