Objectives and Outcomes
The mission of the Electrical Engineering program is to provide a quality electrical engineering education with extensive hands-on and laboratory experience that will enable our graduates to practice their profession with proficiency and integrity.
Program Educational Objectives
Within five years of graduation, our graduates are expected to
- Advance in their profession to positions of increased responsibility, and be technically competent and productive members of their profession.
- Keep informed of developments in their fields of expertise, acquire and apply new knowledge and skills, and be aware of emerging technologies.
- Communicate effectively, professionally and ethically with their employers, colleagues, clients and vendors, and be responsible and beneficial members of their local and global communities.
By graduation, students in our program are expected to attain the following student outcomes:
- An ability to identify, formulate, and solve complex engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science, and mathematics.
- 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.
- An ability to communicate effectively with a range of audiences.
- 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.
- 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.
- An ability to develop and conduct appropriate experimentation, analyze and interpret data, and use engineering judgment to draw conclusions.
- An ability to acquire and apply new knowledge as needed, using appropriate learning strategies.
