Telecommunication Program

Program Student Learning Outcomes Assessment
(AY 2012-2013)

Program Student Learning Outcomes(PSLOS)

At the completion of Telecommunication Program the student will be able to:

  1. Practice Safety and occupational health procedures in the workplace.
  2. Use electronic tools and test equipment competently.
  3. Interpret schematic diagrams and waveforms.
  4. Build electronic projects to a given specification.
  5. Practice career in telecommunication industry.
  6. Troubleshoot microwave, fiber optic, radio communication and telephone system

  • PSLO Assessment Report Summary

    What we looked at:

    The Telecommunication Program assessment focused on PSLOs 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6. Listed below are the results for each of the PSLOs.

    What we found:

    • 29 out of 29 or 100% of the students got 'C' or better as their final grade and were able to follow safety procedure during the hands-on activity.
    • 44 out of 44 or 100% of the students got a grade of "C" or better in the course and were able to competently use the tools and equipment in telecommunication during their hands-on activity.
    • 29 out of 30 or 100% of the students got 'C' or better as their final grade and were able to read schematic/wiring diagram and signal waveform.
    • 13 out of 14 students (93%) achieved a grade of 70% or better and were able to terminate and connect wires, cable and connectors at given specification.
    • 25 out of 29 or 86% of the students got 'C' or better as their final grade and were able to practice a career in telecommunication by attending on-the-job training.
    • 74 out of 78 or 95% of the students got 'C' and better as their final grade and were able to perform troubleshooting in radio devices, microwave communication system, telephone system and fiber optics system.

    What we are planning to work on:

    Include how to use an infra-red solder station to learn the ball grid array (BGA) rework competencies where all integrated circuit (IC) found in modern cellphone technology attach onto its printed circuit board (PCB).

    Recommendations for students:

    Students must have a grade of "C" or better in Math and English courses this proficiency level help the student to meet the course work in telecommunication technology technical courses. Likewise should meet every course prerequisite of each courses in the program to assure program completion in two years.
