Department Educational Objectives
We consider program educational objectives as the general characteristics our graduates demonstrate to the workplace, graduate school, the military, or their endeavors after they leave Miami. We typically measure these characteristics initially at graduation by asking graduates if they feel that they have achieved these characteristics and then periodically thereafter through employer surveys, letters from graduates, advisory council, graduate school accomplishments, and surveys of graduates who have been out for a while. These characteristics should become most evident within the first few years after graduation.
The Engineering Technology Department's graduates are able to:
- apply math and physics principles to the solution of engineering technical problems.
- use applied skills to identify, evaluate, and solve complex technical problems.
- use engineering computer software to facilitate engineering problem solving.
- function effectively in team-oriented activities.
- demonstrate the knowledge of expected standards of ethical and professional conduct.
- verbally communicate ideas.
- prepare well-written technical reports.
In addition, our graduates will have the necessary fundamentals to pursue life-long learning.
Program-Specific Educational Objectives
Electrical and Computer Engineering Technology (A.A.S.)
The ECET program produces graduates who:
