B.S. in Electronics Engineering Technology
The Electronics Engineering Technology (ELET) program provides students with the knowledge and skills needed to enter the workforce and advance as professional engineering technologists in the field of electronics. The curriculum of the program is designed to provide students with a solid foundation of knowledge and a range of skills in:
- circuit theory and design,
- digital and analog electronics,
- fundamentals of microprocessor architecture and interfacing,
- control systems,
- computer networks, and
- basic computer programming.
The Electronics Engineering Technology program at Texas Southern University is accredited by the Engineering Technology Accreditation Commission of ABET, http://www.abet.erg.
ELET Program Educational Objectives (PEOs):
The educational objectives of the ELET program describe what graduates are expected to attain within three years of graduation. Within three years of graduation, the ELET graduates are expected to:
- Be employed and have successful careers in the electronics engineering technology field where they use their knowledge in design, development, and operation of solutions that respond to the needs in the society as well as the profession;
- Hold leadership positions within their organizations; and
- Continue their life learning journey by taking professional development steps, such as an advanced degree in engineering or completing a certificate program, to advances themselves in their profession.
The above educational objectives are aligned with the following mission statement of Texas Southern University:
“Texas Southern University is a student-centered comprehensive doctoral university committed to ensuring equality, offering innovative programs that are responsive to its urban setting, and transforming diverse students into lifelong learners, engaged citizens, and creative leaders in their local, national, and global communities.”
ELET Student Outcomes (SOs)
To help our graduates achieve these program objectives after their graduation, the curriculum of the ELET program is designed with ensure that students, upon their graduation from the program, are equipped with the knowledge and skills they need to pursue a successful career as electronics engineering technologists.
