Course-specific student learning outcomes:

Course objectives/expected student learning outcomes
Course Objectives Learning Outcomes
ETCTa4: Use application software, circuit simulation software, and computer programming skills to solve problems in electronic systems. Student will be able to use software simulation tools to analyze circuits.
ETCTc1: Verify that a circuit is working correctly by taking measurements and interpreting the results. Students will be able to test their own circuits and report results.
ETCTc2:Analyze discrepancies in experimental results and determine whether the error is within acceptable experimental limits. Students will understand how their real results differ from mathematical results using ideal components.
ETCTf1: Produce effective written documents including lab reports and term papers. Students will write clear lab reports
ETCTi2: Revise technical reports and writing to improve quality. Students will be able to improve their own lab reports.

Program-specific outcomes

Student Outcome A -  an ability to apply the knowledge, techniques, skills, and modern tools of the discipline to narrowly defined engineering technology activities

Student Outcome C -  an ability to conduct standard tests and measurements, and to conduct, analyze, and interpret experiments

Student Outcome F – an ability to apply written, oral, and graphical communication in both technical and nontechnical environments; and an ability to identify and use appropriate technical literature

Student Outcome I -  a commitment to quality timeliness and continuous improvement

Methods by which student learning will be assessed and evaluated; describe the types of methods to be employed; note whether certain methods are required for all sections:

  • Lab Reports
  • Lab Demonstrations
  • Mid-Term Exam
  • Final Quiz
