Architectural Engineering Technology - Learning Outcomes

​​​​Program Educational Objectives

Program Educational Objectives describe what graduates are expected to know and be able to do after graduation or with a few years of experience.

  1. ​Utilize knowledge, techniques and skills to create accurate architectural documents and presentations with appropriate computer software to meet professional standards.
  2. Use mathematics, architectural/engineering technology theory and critical thinking skills to design and document functional solutions to meet established criteria and standards when given a design problem.
  3. Apply knowledge of proper uses and properties of architectural components and materials to develop buildable assemblies and details meeting construction standards.
  4. Exhibit professionalism and ethics through active participation in class activities and successful completion of group projects.
  5. Analyze an architectural process​ drawing for proper compliance with local building and zoning codes. 
  6. Apply appropriate terminology, written, verbal and graphic, to effectively communicate with professionals in the Architecture, Engineering Technology and Design office environment.
  7. Demonstrate an understanding of the need for a lifelong commitment to quality, timeliness, continuous improvement and professional development. 

Student Outcomes

The COTC Engineering Technology Department has adopted the 2014-2015 ABET Criterion 3 Student Outcomes (a-i) as our own Student Outcomes. Graduates in the COTC Engineering Technology, Architectural Engineering Technology program should be able to do the following:

  1. ​Apply the knowledge, techniques, skills, and modern tools of the discipline to narrowly defined engineering technology activities.
  2. Apply knowledge of mathematics, science, engineering, and technology to engineering technology problems that require limited application of principles but extensive practical knowledge.
  3. Conduct standard tests and measurements, and to conduct, analyze, and interpret experiments related to architectural engineering technology.
  4. Demonstrate the ability to function effectively as a member of a technical team.
  5. Identify, analyze, and solve narrowly defined engineering technology problems.
  6. Apply written, oral, and graphical communication in both technical and non-technical environments; and an ability to identify and use appropriate technical literature.
  7. Identify the need for and an ability to engage in self-directed continuing professional development.
  8. Demonstrate a commitment to address professional and ethical responsibilities, including a respect for diversity.
  9. Demonstrate a commitment to quality, timeliness, and continuous improvement.
