ABET Accreditation

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 career 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 achievement of others in new and existing enterprises.

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

(a) an ability to apply knowledge of mathematics, science, and engineering

(b) an ability to design and conduct experiments, as well as to analyze and interpret data

(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

(d) an ability to function on multi-disciplinary teams

(e) an ability to identify, formulate, and solve engineering problems

(f) an understanding of professional and ethical responsibility

(g) an ability to communicate effectively

(h) the broad education necessary to understand the impact of engineering solutions in a global, economic, environmental, and societal context

(i) a recognition of the need for and an ability to engage in life-long learning

(j) a knowledge of contemporary issues

(k) an ability to use the techniques, skills, and modern engineering tools necessary for engineering practice.
