b. Ability to design and conduct experiments, as well as to analyze and interpret data 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 b = c
c. An ability to design a system, component, or process to meet desired needs within realistic constraints such as economic, environmental, social, political, ethical, health and safety, manufacturability, and sustainability An ability to conduct standard tests and measurements; to conduct, analyze, and interpret experiments; and to apply experimental results to improve processes c = d
d. Ability to function on multi-disciplinary teams An ability to design systems, components, or processes for broadly-defined engineering technology problems appropriate to program educational objectives d = e
e. Ability to identify, formulate, and solve engineering problems An ability to function effectively as a member or leader on a technical team e = f
f. An understanding of professional and ethical responsibility An ability to identify, analyze, and solve broadly-defined engineering technology problems f = i
