Electronic Engineering Technology Program

Program Student Learning Outcomes Assessment
(AY 2012-2013)

Program Student Learning Outcomes(PSLOS)

At the completion of Electronic Engineering Technology Certificate 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.
  • I=Introduced
  • D=Demonstrated
  • M=Mastery at a level appropriate for graduation
  • PSLO Assessment Report Summary

    What we looked at:

    The Electronic Engineering Technology Certificate Program assessment focused on PSLOs 1 and 2. Listed below are the results for each of the PSLOs.

    What we found:

    • PSLO#1: Practice safety and occupational health procedures in the workplace.
      Task name: Apply safety procedures when using electronic testing equipment.
      Task description: During practical exercises (using oscilloscope & frequency counter to measure voltage and frequency of an AC waveform), students were assessed on their performances.
      Result: 28 out of 38 or 74% of students achieved a grade of 90% or better

      Task name: Follow safety rules in the workshop or workplace
      Task description: During practical exercises (circuit construction & analysis [bread-boarding] and NIDA experiments on AC/DC circuits) students are assessed on their performances by instructors
      Result: 29 out of 38 or 76% of students achieved a grade of 90% or better

      Task name: Use of personal protection equipment (PPE)
      Task description: During practical exercises (soldering and cable fabrication), students are assessed on the use of PPE as observed by instructors.
      Result: 33 out of 38 or 87% of students achieved a grade of 90% or better


    • PSLO #2: Use electronic tools and test equipment competently
      Task name: Use of testing equipment (digital & analog multi-meter)
      Task description: During practical exercises, students’ competencies are assessed by instructors
      Result: 32 out of 40 students achieved a grade of 80% or better

      Task name: Use of testing equipment (oscilloscope, function generator, frequency counter)
      Task description: During practical exercises, students’ competencies are assessed by instructors
      Result: 9 out of 18 achieved a grade of 80% or better

    What we are planning to work on:

    • Include proper footwear and attire as part of the course requirements in the course syllabus
    • Modify course to increase more practice on the use of oscilloscope, frequency counter, and function generator.
    • Recruit more degree-bound students into the program.
    • Develop a course sequence that allows students to complete math, science, and English before taking technical courses.

    Recommendations for students:

    • Electronic has a strong foundation in math and science. Therefore, in order to be very successful in the program, students must have a solid foundation in math and science.
    • The nature of the program dictates how the students will conduct themselves. If you are studying to become an electronic technician or future engineer, you must dress and behave like one.
    • Practice is the best way to quickly learn a skill. It is recommended for students to seek every possible opportunity to apply learned skills and develop a passion in devices, equipment, and tools of the trade.
