The Electrical Engineering Technology program is accredited by the Engineering Technology Accreditation Commission of ABET http://www.abet.org/. The ABET accreditation process ensures that each program has a structured mechanism to assess, evaluate, and improve the quality of the program. ABET accreditation is assurance that a college or university program meets the quality standards established by the profession for which it prepares its students. For example, an accredited electrical engineering technology program must meet the quality standards set by the engineering profession.
In support of Nassau Community College’s mission, the Electrical Engineering Technology program offers a curriculum that develops critical thinking skills, fosters all modes of communications, applies college level math and science throughout the technical core courses and develops the technical skills required to enter the engineering workforce or pursue an advanced degree. The program faculty, with input from industrial advisory board members, have developed the following Program Educational Objectives:
Student outcomes support the program's educational objectives. Upon completion of the program, students will be able to:
Faculty members have designed a continuous improvement process that utilizes a course level assessment matrix. Assessment results are reported during the Industrial Advisory Board meeting in June, for the express purpose of soliciting recommendations to modify the program. Along with a review of the program educational objectives and student outcomes, components of the program are revised and continually monitored in subsequent semesters.
