ABET logoThe Bachelor of Science program in Electrical Engineering and the Bachelor of Science program in Computer Engineering are accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, http://www.abet.org

Program Educational Objectives

Program Educational Objectives are broad statements that describe what graduates are expected to attain within a few years of graduation. Program Educational Objectives for the Electrical Engineering program and for the Computer Engineering program are shown below:

Program Educational Objectives – Electrical Engineering

1. Graduates will be successful with careers in industry, academia or the public sector, or in achieving advanced degrees. Their activities will be characterized by an adherence to sound professional practices, good judgment, and the highest ethical principles.

2. Graduates who follow a career path in Electrical Engineering will demonstrate peer-recognized expertise and the potential for innovation in at least one of the core areas of Electrical Engineering such as circuits, communications, signal processing, controls, electromagnetics, optics, power and energy, electronics, robotics, or digital systems.

3. Graduates will demonstrate the desire and capability to grow in professional ability throughout their careers through graduate study, professional improvement opportunities, or self-study.

4. Graduates will exhibit leadership and initiative to advance professional and organizational goals and will facilitate the achievements of others in new and existing enterprises.

5. Graduates will exhibit professional communications skills and cultural awareness, and they will use these traits to be effective community, team, and organizational contributors and leaders.

Student Outcomes

The ABET-associated Student Outcomes are what our graduates are expected to know and be able to do by the time of graduation. These relate to the skills, knowledge, and behaviors that students acquire as they progress through the program. The Student Outcomes for the Electrical Engineering Program and for the Computer Engineering Program are shown below.

Student Outcomes – Electrical Engineering

Electrical Engineering graduates should demonstrate:

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

5. An ability to function effectively on a team whose members together provide leadership, create a collaborative and inclusive environment, establish goals, plan tasks, and meet objectives

6. An ability to develop and conduct appropriate experimentation, analyze and interpret data, and use engineering judgment to draw conclusions

7. An ability to acquire and apply new knowledge as needed, using appropriate learning strategies
