ECET Mission Statement

 

Electronics and Computer Engineering Technology Mission:

The Electronics and Computer Engineering Technology (ECET) Program at Cal Poly Pomona is designed to prepare a diverse student population for application-oriented technical careers as professional members of the Engineering Team. Our graduates are expected to not only gain an excellent technical background in their education, but also to develop personal skills in the areas of written and oral communication, respect for diversity, and an understanding of the significance of lifelong learning. These goals will be met by continually improving our program curriculum to reflect the needs of our constituents, and maintain consistency with the standards of the California State University system."

The Specific Program Educational Objectives expected from each graduate are:

Objective 1. Our graduates will be members of the "engineering team" where they use their engineering knowledge, methods and established design procedures to solve applied engineering problems related to testing and/or manufacturing in the electronics and/or computer industries.

Objective 2. Our graduates will accomplish their work responsibilities in a professional and ethical manner, with an awareness of the greater social responsibilities associated with engineering.

Objective 3. Our graduates will have a solid understanding of established math, science and engineering methods for analyzing and solving practical engineering problems in industry.

Objective 4. Our graduates will posses breadth in engineering science including engineering mechanics, energy systems, electric circuits, materials and processes, and software applications.

Objective 5. Our graduates will be self-learners (i.e. life-long learners) in order to maintain technical proficiency in their careers.

Objective 6. Our graduates will be effective communicators both in written and oral form.

Objective 7. Our graduates will work effectively in team settings as members and team leaders as appropriate, including the use of project management techniques.

Objective 8. Our graduates will be proficient in performing laboratory experiments and testing, including the use of appropriate hardware, software, and simulation techniques in solving engineering-oriented problems.
