Program Educational Objectives

Alumni, employers, faculty and students participate in a process used to develop educational objectives for the undergraduate programs in Electrical Engineering and Computer Engineering. Within a few years of graduation, program graduates completing the baccalaureate degree in Electrical or Computer Engineering will

  • Be recognized by their peers as fundamentally sound in the application of mathematics, science, computing, and engineering.
  • Be engaged in the practice of Electrical or Computer Engineering as innovative problem solvers with a strong work ethic, by identifying and implementing solutions using the proper tools, practical approaches, and flexible thinking.
  • Be productive and demonstrate leadership in the practice of Electrical or Computer Engineering, both individually and within multidisciplinary teams, using effective oral and written communication skills when working with peers, supervisors, and the public.
  • Be responsible in the practice of Electrical or Computer Engineering, relying on sound engineering ethics, a commitment to lifelong learning and a genuine concern for society and the environment.

Student Outcomes

1. an ability to identify, formulate, and solve complex engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science, and mathematics

2. an ability to apply engineering design to produce solutions that meet specified needs with consideration of public health, safety, and welfare, as well as global, cultural, social, environmental, and economic factors

3. an ability to communicate effectively with a range of audiences

4. an ability to recognize ethical and professional responsibilities in engineering situations and make informed judgments, which must consider the impact of engineering solutions in global, economic, environmental, and societal contexts
