Student Outcomes

The Electrical Engineering Technology department at Pitt-Johnstown has adopted the general and student specific outcomes defined by the ETAC of ABET for Electrical Engineering Technology Baccalaureate Degree programs. Upon completion of their degree, graduates of the Pitt-Johnstown EET program will have demonstrated they have achieved the following general outcomes:

    1. an ability to select and apply the knowledge, techniques, skills and modern tools of the discipline to broadly-defined engineering technology activities;
    2. an ability to select and apply a knowledge of mathematics, science, engineering, and technology to engineering technology problems that require the application of principles and applied procedures or methodologies;
    3. an ability to conduct standard tests and measurements; to conduct, analyze, and interpret experiments; and to apply experimental results to improve processes;
    4. an ability to design systems, components, or processes for broadly-defined engineering technology problems appropriate to program educational objectives;
    5. an ability to function effectively as a member or leader on a technical team;
    6. an ability to identify, analyze, and solve broadly-defined engineering technology problems;
    7. an ability to apply written, oral, and graphical communication in both technical and non-technical environments; and an ability to identify and use appropriate technical literature;
    8. an understanding of the need for an ability to engage in self-directed continuing professional development;
    9. an understanding of and a commitment to address professional and ethical responsibilities including a respect for diversity;
    10. a knowledge of the impact of engineering technology solutions in a societal and global context; and
    11. a commitment to quality, timeliness, and continuous improvement.

In addition to the above general outcomes, ETAC of ABET Student Outcomes for Baccalaureate Degree EET programs require that graduates of the Pitt-Johnstown EET program demonstrate they are capable of the following:

  • a.  the application of circuit analysis and design, computer programming, associated software, analog and digital electronics, and microcomputers, and engineering standards to the building, testing, operation, and maintenance of electrical/electronic(s) systems.
  • b.  the applications of physics or chemistry to electrical/electronic(s) circuits in a rigorous mathematical environment at or above the level of algebra and trigonometry.
  • c. the ability to analyze, design, and implement control systems, instrumentation systems, communications systems, computer systems, or power systems.
  • d. the ability to apply project management techniques to electrical/electronic(s) systems.
  • e. the ability to utilize statistics/probability, transform methods, discrete mathematics, or applied differential equations in support of electrical/electronic(s) systems.
