Electrical Engineering:  Program Educational Objectives

  • Graduates will be able to successfully practice electrical engineering and related fields regionally, nationally, and globally.
  • Graduates will be well-educated in the fundamental and applied  concepts of electrical engineering and be able to continue their professional development throughout their careers.
  • Graduates will be skilled in clear communications and teamwork, and capable of functioning responsibly and ethically in diverse environments.
  • Graduates will be prepared to demonstrate leadership in outreach, innovation, and invention.

Student Learning Outcomes for Electrical Engineering are:

  1. an ability to apply knowledge of mathematics, science, and engineering
  2. an ability to design and conduct experiments, as well as to analyze and interpret data
  3. 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
  4. an ability to function on multidisciplinary teams
  5. an ability to identify, formulate, and solve engineering problems
  6. an understanding of professional and ethical responsibility
  7. an ability to communicate effectively
  8. the broad education necessary to understand the impact of engineering solutions in a global, economic, environmental, and societal context
  9. a recognition of the need for, and an ability to engage in life-long learning
  10. a knowledge of contemporary issues
  11. an ability to use the techniques, skills, and modern engineering tools necessary for engineering practice.
