Course Description
Current Trends & Applications in Applied Science & Technology prepares and develops your skills for a technical leadership role in your area of discipline within applied science and technology. This course focuses on how to do technology assessments and how to evaluate different perspectives when determining the various direct and indirect impacts of technology in the specific discipline. Throughout this course, you will develop and build "pattern discovery expertise" to: recognize historical trends; predict future applications; and use your analytical skills in determining the types of impacts technology has on people's lives, the environment, society, and the economy. This expertise is vital when developing and commercializing new applications.

Learning Outcomes
Through the Portfolio Assessment process, students will demonstrate that they can appropriately address the following outcomes:

  • Apply the knowledge and skills required for a technical leadership role in applied science and technology areas.
  • Express strategic insight into the products, technologies, and market segments driving an industrys growth.
  • Identify historical patterns and future impact within areas of science and technology.
  • Depict the dependency of science and technology when developing new solutions or applications.
  • Analyze how new technologies can directly and indirectly affect existing applications.
  • Create a strategy to mitigate risk, manage change and acceptance during the introduction of new technologies.
  • Assess methods and processes to identify gaps in technology in order to create opportunities for future applications.
  • Evaluate how external influences can affect the public perception and wide scale acceptance of emerging technologies.

Course Description
The Electronics Engineering Technology Capstone is an in-depth, student-centered activity that requires the integration of theory and practical experience. Students will apply the skills and techniques they have learned to a specific project. The project will identify a real-world electronics engineering technical problem, issue, event, developing technology, or case study in which the student will conduct research by exploring, evaluating, and theorizing a solution in a final paper. On successful completion of the course, students will have met the Learning Outcomes of the EET degree program.

Learning Outcomes
Through the Portfolio Assessment process, students will demonstrate that they can appropriately address the following outcomes:

  • Review the criteria for accreditation by ABETs Technology Accreditation Commission, match them to the student outcomes of the electronics engineering technology program, and generate a capstone project that demonstrates mastery of the outcomes.
  • Design a capstone project based on past academic, professional, and personal learning experiences that involves conducting research on a problem, issue, event, developing technology, or case study in the electronics engineering technology field.
  • Demonstrate proficiency as an independent learner and critical thinker by preparing a comprehensive research paper on a problem, issue, event, developing technology, or case study.
  • Research, interpret, and critically analyze literature pertaining to the capstone project.
  • Synthesize research findings, theories, and practice into a comprehensive explanation and resolution of the problem, issue, event, developing technology, or case study.
  • Communicate effectively by making technical presentations in English using language appropriate to peers and other audiences.
  • Summarize the historical development, current state, and future direction of their field of study as related to the capstone project.
  • Function effectively as a team member with an understanding of cultural diversity.
  • Critique the professional, ethical, and social responsibilities in the electronics engineering technology field as it applies to the capstone project.
  • Submit an ethically responsible final project in an academic, professional format that serves as a bridge to their future work or employment.
