Program Learning Outcomes

This program is designed to prepare students to demonstrate the following learning outcomes:

  1. Demonstrate effective oral and written communication skills using appropriate technology.
  2. Work independently and collaboratively as an effective member of a team to complete projects.
  3. Identify, acquire, evaluate and ethically use technical information from multiple sources.
  4. Exhibit professional, ethical, and social responsibilities and the need for lifelong learning in the engineering profession.
  5. Conduct, analyze and interpret electronic experiments using electronic instrumentation standard measurements.
  6. Apply knowledge of circuit analysis/design and use computer languages and software to solve a stated problem in analog or digital electronics.
  7. Apply knowledge of physical sciences and practice of engineering standards to build, test, operate and maintain electrical and electronic systems.
  8. Use algebra, trigonometry, or applied calculus to conduct experiments of electrical and electronic systems.

MATH-1140, MATH-1141, MATH-1200, MATH-1270, and MATH-1280 can no longer count towards fulfilling the college-level mathematics requirement.  These courses were re-classified as developmental mathematics by the state of Ohio in 2016.  Tri-C established a 5-year transitioning window for students who had completed these courses prior to 2016 to apply them towards meeting graduation requirements, which expired in Summer 2021. It is highly recommended to see a counselor to determine the appropriate math required for your current major.
