Program Pathways

A pathway is the most efficient sequence of courses semester-to-semester recommended for students to complete their degree. The Engineering Science: Technology Degree has two pathways to choose from:

Learning Outcomes

Student Learning Outcomes - Engineering Science: Technology Option

Student Learning Outcomes – Engineering Science: Technology Option

  • Analyze problems, isolate and describe the important components of a problem: what is given (design specifications, performance requirements and testing standards). Identify variables- known and unknown.
    • Represent problems in a visual form, such as a schematic, flow chart, diagram, data table, or model.
  • Validate strong fundamentals in engineering technology and the technical skills needed to support engineering activities, particularly in the design, testing, and manufacture of products, systems, and devices.
  • Prove the capacity to conduct an experiment, use laboratory materials, properly and safely, note observations accurately, precisely and describe procedures.
  • Effectively use software simulation and information acquisition tools to collect, analyze and interpret data. Develop proficiency in the use and application of new tools and methods from the field of math, science, engineering and technology.
  • Demonstrate the ability to be an independent and equal contributor on a team-based project. Be able to articulate the overall team project goals and roles of the members.
