"Student Outcomes" are statements of the knowledge and skills that students in an educational program are expected to demonstrate by the time of graduation. Faculty members at Point Park University have established the 12 outcomes listed below for students pursuing a Bachelor of Science degree program in electrical engineering technology. (Students pursuing an Associate in Science degree are expected to achieve a subset of these outcomes.) Students’ success in achieving these outcomes is measured regularly using a variety of assessment tools such as in-class problems and surveys.
1. Students will analyze and design electrical systems, components, and processes.
2. Students will test electrical systems, components, and processes, analyze the resulting data, and make iterative improvements.
3. Students will develop computer hardware and software to support the analysis, design, and operation of electrical systems, components, and processes.
4. Students will solve engineering technology problems by using standard formulas, graphs, tables, and software while recognizing the limitations of these techniques.
5. Students will solve engineering technology problems by applying principles of mathematics, science, and engineering.
6. Students will collaborate in laboratory and classroom settings to fulfill technical requirements in a timely manner.
7. Students will produce clear, precise, and effective technical documents and oral presentations.
8. Students will plan and manage technical projects.
9. Students will be prepared to grow professionally through independent learning, continuing education, and participation in technical societies.
10. Students will understand the benefits of registration as a professional engineer and will take the Fundamentals of Engineering examination.
11. Students will be familiar with the laws and codes governing professional practice.
12. Students will understand their personal and professional roles in society.
