Program Mission, Description, and Outcomes

Mission:

The program prepares individuals to assemble, install, operate, maintain, troubleshoot and repair electronic equipment used in industry. In addition, it also includes content related to the design, theory, and analysis of electronic systems and applications along with general electronics background. This program incorporates innovative teaching methods, uses the latest technology, thus encouraging student success.

Description:

The program provides a solid foundation in the installation, maintenance, and repair of computer systems, computer networks, robotics and simulation technology. The program provides a general electronics background and prepares students to pass the A+ Certification Examination. Selection of advanced electives allows students to specialize in networking, simulator technician or robotics options. After completion, students may seek career jobs or transition into baccalaureate programs.

Students transferring into DSC’s BSET, EET concentration should take the following classes to maximize their articulation transfer to the BS program: STA2023, MAC1140, and EGN2045 as Electives.

Students transferring into DSC’s BSIT should take the following classes to maximize their articulation transfer to the BS program: CTS2321, MAC1140, MAC1114, and MAC2311C as Electives.

Outcomes:

Graduates of the program will be able to:

  1. Apply knowledge of mathematics, basic science, and engineering technology to solve problems encompassing the fundamental areas of computer engineering technology.

  2. Apply knowledge of one or more disciplines to the application, installation, operation, and/or maintenance of computer systems.

  3. Conduct and create experiments to acquire needed data and to analyze and interpret the data to solve engineering technology problems.

  4. Comply and function as a member of a diverse multidisciplinary team in the solution of engineering problems.

  5. Demonstrate proficiency in communicating ideas and information orally and in writing.

  6. Relate the need for, and an ability to learn and apply new concepts as required in the continually evolving and rapidly changing practice of computer engineering technology.

  7. Comprehend ethical responsibility and professional integrity issues as related to computer engineering technology.

  8. Comprehend contemporary technological and societal issues and the impact of computer engineering technology on society in both a local and global context.
