This major is characterized by a high level of quantitative and analytical skills with a strong bias towards hands-on work, while retaining design theory and practice. Emphasis is on the skills needed to lead projects and interface with engineering and development teams. The major addresses the need for graduates with practical skills in electronics and computer engineering technology who are ready to enter the workplace. The design is challenging and unique. The technical content is relevant and emphasizes current topics in electronics and computer engineering technology.
Process engineer/technologist, test engineer/technologist, controls engineer/technologist, design engineer/technologist, application engineer/technologist.
Recommended High School Subjects
Strong preparation in mathematics and science with good communication skills. Must be able to enter pre-calculus in the first semester or take remedial courses before entry. Hands-on skills in electronics are helpful but not necessary.
Special Equipment Needs
Students will be required to have the tools listed on the electronics website.
Students who test at a math placement level one (MTH004) are not permitted to take Electronics (EET) courses until MTH 004 has been successfully completed. Students who placement test in MTH006, ENL001, and RDG (001 or 111) simultaneously are not permitted to take Electronics courses until remediation has been completed in at least one area. Students testing deficient in English and/or reading are required to remediate these areas during their first semester. Students testing into MTH 005 or MTH 006 are permitted to take first semester Electronics courses. Students need to be in MTH 180 or above in their second semester; otherwise, students need instructor permission to continue into a second semester Electronics course.
This four-year degree major allows transfer from associate-degree majors in electrical/electronics/computer engineering technology from other institutions, as well as those offered by Penn College. This major is subject to the transfer standards established by the College (see http://www.pct.edu/catalog/TransferringCredits ). Exceptions must be approved by the school dean.
Program GoalsA graduate of this major should be able to:
- apply principles of circuit design and analysis of analog, digital, microprocessor-based, and networked systems.
- use appropriate interpersonal, verbal, and written communications and information literacy skills to work independently and cooperatively within an organization to promote the goals and objectives of a team, division, or company.
- demonstrate a cooperative and responsible attitude; respect cultural diversity and ethical behavior.
- utilize information literacy and technology resources in continuous, independent learning throughout his or her career.
- apply advanced mathematical skills to solve problems involved with the design and implementation of analog and digital signal processing systems.
- apply industry-accepted principles in the design and manufacture of electronic circuits and systems.
- use current project management processes to supervise the design, implementation, and quality control of electronic systems.
