Course objectives/expected student learning outcomes
Course Objectives Learning Outcomes
Enhance the student ability to design and implement a continue synchronous counter that will display a name of 5 or 6 letter using a 7-segment display. Student shall demonstrate understanding on constructing truth table, minimization SOP equation using a Karnaugh Map, creating synchronous counter, and designing an astable oscillator as the clock pulse. Student outcome B: Student should be able to apply a knowledge of mathematics, science, engineering, and technology to engineering technology problems that require limited application of principles but extensive practical knowledge. Activity: Final Exam and Final Project: Question about “Logic Circuit Design” (Individual Activity)
Student shall show be able to build a simple digital circuit that will display digit from 0 to 9 using a 7-segment display. Student shall have the knowledge to collect data, confirm their experiment data, and discuss their results with the respective circuit theorem. Student outcome A: Student should be able to demonstrate ability to apply the knowledge, techniques, skills, and modern tools of the discipline to narrowly defined engineering technology activities. Activity: Lab 7 – BCD to 7-segment decoder (Individual Experiment)
Student shall have the ability to present a formal report about their final project assignment. The final project report should include experimental data, tables and graphs analysis, and experimental results and discussion for improvement. Student outcome F: Student should demonstrate ability to apply written, oral, and graphical communication in both technical and nontechnical environments; and an ability to identify and use appropriate technical literature. Activity: Final Project Report (Individual report)
Student shall show knowledge in connecting the digital circuit materials learned in class and relate them to the daily activities. The writing assignment should include examples where and how digital circuits are applied in today’s technology and what possible improvement can be made. Student outcome I: Student should show a commitment to quality, timeliness, and continuous improvement. Activity: Final writing assignment.

Academic Integrity policy (department or College):
Academic honesty is expected of all students. Any violation of academic integrity is taken extremely seriously. All assignments and projects must be the original work of the student or teammates. Plagiarism will not be tolerated. Any questions regarding academic integrity should be brought to the attention of the instructor. The following is the Queensborough Community College Policy on Academic Integrity: "It is the official policy of the College that all acts or attempted acts that are violations of Academic Integrity be reported to the Office of Student Affairs. At the faculty member's discretion and with the concurrence of the student or students involved, some cases though reported to the Office of Student Affairs may be resolved within the confines of the course and department. The instructor has the authority to adjust the offender's grade as deemed appropriate, including assigning an F to the assignment or exercise or, in more serious cases, an F to the student for the entire course."
