Objectives and Outcomes

Program Educational Objectives

The Engineering Technology program develops engineering technologists who are:

  • In demand by employers in their respective engineering technology discipline
  • Recognized for their ability to apply technology expertise in their discipline
  • Recognized for their leadership and teamwork skills
  • Demonstrating continued career growth and professional development

Student Outcomes

UW-Stout Engineering Technology program graduates will have:

  • An ability to select and apply the knowledge, techniques, skills, and modern tools of the discipline to broadly-defined engineering technology activities;
  • An ability to select and apply a knowledge of mathematics, science, engineering, and technology to engineering technology problems that require the application of principles and applied procedures or methodologies;
  • An ability to conduct standard tests and measurements; to conduct, analyze, and interpret experiments; and to apply experimental results to improve processes;
  • An ability to design systems, components, or processes for broadly-defined engineering technology problems appropriate to program educational objectives;
  • An ability to function effectively as a member or leader on a technical team;
  • An ability to identify, analyze, and solve broadly-defined engineering technology problems;
  • An ability to apply written, oral, and graphical communication in both technical and non-technical environments; and an ability to identify and use appropriate technical literature;
  • An understanding of the need for and an ability to engage in self-directed continuing professional development;
  • An understanding of and a commitment to address professional and ethical responsibilities including a respect for diversity;
  • A knowledge of the impact of engineering technology solutions in a societal and global context; and
  • A commitment to quality, timeliness, and continuous improvement.
