Cats to cti to cscc l.jpg
CATS to CTI to CSCC

  • 1963

    • Columbus Area Technician’s School

      • EET Enrollment Peak 35(?)

  • Mid-1970s

    • Columbus Technical Institute

      • EET Enrollment Peak 300(?)

  • Mid-1980s

    • Columbus State Community College

      • EET Enrollment Peak 600(?) with 5 full-time faculty members

  • Today

    • CSCC

      • EET Average Enrollment 120-150, with 1 full-time faculty member



Sample of research sources l.jpg
Sample of Research Sources

  • Visits to 5 Community Colleges in Ohio

    • The Disappointing Search for a Flourishing Program - 2004

  • Conferences

    • 2005 ASEE

    • 2006 and 2007 SAME-TEC

    • 2009 HI-TEC

  • Sample of Literature Review

    • The Disappearing Associate Degree Program In Electronics Technology - American Society for Engineering Education, Conference Proceedings, 2003

    • Are Today's Electronics Technology Programs Doomed To Extinction Or Is Their Mission Changing? - American Society for Engineering Education, Conference Proceedings, 2007


Why the national decline l.jpg

Loss of jobs due to mfg. moving offshore

Loss of local jobs due to economic conditions

Fewer technician jobs caused by improved technology

The societal Science, Technology, Engineering & Math (STEM) problem

Lack of understanding of what electronic technicians do

Lack of relevancy of college programs to local job needs

Outdated curriculum

Faculty lack of interest in and/or resistance to changing and updating programs

Why the National Decline?

Excerpts from “The Disappearing Associate Degree Program In Electronics Technology” – Louis E. Frenzel, 2003



The systems view l.jpg
The Systems View

  • Electronics 2010 Project evolved to eSyst

  • Fortune 100 and NSF are Involved

  • How Should Electronics Technology Be Taught Today? A Fresh Look At The Top Down Approach For Associate Degree Programs – American Society for Engineering Education, Conference Proceedings, 2009


The decision we made l.jpg

The Decision We Made

Change Curriculum to Systems View; Phased Implementation over 2 years, Began with Catalog Changes Effective AU08


Eet core curricula only not a direct course to course correlation l.jpg
EET Core Curricula Only (not a direct course-to-course correlation)


Course sample slides l.jpg

Course Sample Slides

Begin with a System to Allow the Students to Grasp the Functionality, then Drill Down




Electronic switching systems l.jpg
Electronic Switching Systems

  • AC-to-DC Intelligent Charging System

  • Schematic diagram from US Patent Office

    • US Patent 4,233,553


Slide16 l.jpg

Primary Inverter Input Filter

MOSFET Full H-Bridge

Dead-time adjustment

AC Outputs to Secondary Inverter Input

Primary Inverter Waveform Generator


Remaining challenges l.jpg
Remaining Challenges

  • State mandated curriculum is legacy view

  • Adjunct faculty resistance to change

  • Employer perceptions

  • ABET re-accreditation 2011

  • Validation of results

  • Continuous improvement
