B.S. in Engineering Technology
Concentration in Electronics Engineering Technology Program
The Electronics Engineering Technology (EET) Program is an application-orientated
program. The program is concerned with preparing individuals for a wide variety of
educational and responsible positions in schools, industry, business and governmental
agencies. In addition, it equips the student with a broad theoretical and practical
background to meet the new and demanding problems of our technological society.
Program Mission and Data
The mission of the program is to meet the electronics engineering technology manpower
needs of the State of Louisiana and the nation as a whole by producing graduates that
possess the skills and knowledge that are necessary to be productive practicing Electronics
Program Educational Objectives
- EET-EO-1: To equip graduates with the competencies necessary for advanced graduate
study or a professional career in the electrical/electronic field.
- EET-EO-2: To produce graduates with the technical and managerial skills needed to
be a productive practicing Electronics Engineering Technologist in an effort to serve
the needs of the community, the state and the nation.
- EET-EO-3: To prepare graduates who are able to function on multi-disciplinary teams
and communicate technical ideas in an effective manner.
- EET-EO-4: To produce graduates who understand professional and ethical responsibilities
and the need for life-long learning
To fulfill the mission and the program objectives of the electronics engineering technology
degree program, the following five (5) outcomes have been adopted.
- an ability to apply knowledge, techniques, skills and modern tools of mathematics,
science, engineering, and technology to solve broadly-defined engineering problems
appropriate to the discipline;
- an ability to design systems, components, or processes meeting specified needs for
broadly-defined engineering problems appropriate to the discipline;
- an ability to apply written, oral, and graphical communication in broadly-defined
technical and non-technical environments; and an ability to identify and use appropriate
- an ability to conduct standard tests, measurements, and experiments and to analyze
and interpret the results to improve processes; and
- an ability to function effectively as a member as well as a leader on technical teams.
In addition to the required fundamental engineering technology and concentration core
courses the program allows students to select technical and free electives. Students
are advised to take appropriate electives with the guidance and approval of their
academic advisors and department head.
