co-ops.

OCtech has the only EIT associate degree program in South Carolina.

You'll spend more time in labs training with equipment, tools and programming instruments used every day in automated or production facilities than you will in the classroom.

You'll also have the opportunity to take advantage of co-ops with such companies as Dominion Energy and International Paper. This is paid on-the-job training you can get while you're completing the program.

Electronics Engineering Technology’s Student Outcomes and Program Education Objective Outcomes

Student outcomes describe what students are expected to know and be able to do by the time of graduation. These relate to the skills, knowledge, and behaviors that students attain as they progress through the program. The student outcomes are accessed annually based on the student performance of specific performance indicators that support each outcome. The current student outcomes of the Electronics Engineering Technology program are listed below:

Graduates of the EET program at OCtech should be proficient in the following areas at the time of graduation.

  • An ability to apply knowledge, techniques, skills and modern tools of mathematics, science, engineering, and technology to solve well-defined engineering problems appropriate to the discipline.
  • An ability to design solutions for well-defined technical problems and assist with the engineering design of systems, components, or processes appropriate to the discipline.
  • An ability to apply written, oral, and graphical communication in well-defined technical and non-technical environments; and an ability to identify and use appropriate technical literature
  • An ability to conduct standard tests, measurements, and experiments and to analyze and interpret the results.
  • An ability to function effectively as a member of a technical team.
  • Apply circuit analysis and design, computer programming, associated software, analog and digital electronics, and microcomputers, and engineering standards to the building, testing, operation, and maintenance of electrical/electronic(s) systems.
  • Apply natural sciences and mathematics at or above the level of algebra and trigonometry to the building, testing, operation, and maintenance of electrical/electronic systems.

Program Educational Objectives

  • Program educational objectives are statements that describe what graduates are expected to attain within a few years of graduation. Our program educational objectives are based on the needs of our constituencies and aligned with our program’s mission statement:
