Program Educational Objectives and Student Outcomes
Program Educational Objectives
The knowledge and skills provided by the Electrical Engineering Program will allow our graduates to: contribute to themselves, their employers, and to the field of electrical engineering:
- To themselves: Graduates will be able to obtain gainful employment in the field of electrical engineering or enroll in a graduate program in electrical engineering.
- To their employers: Graduates will be able to make contributions to the organization for which they work.
- To the field of electrical engineering: Graduates will be able to make contributions to the field of electrical engineering.
Students should demonstrate these abilities after completing the electrical engineering program:
(1) an ability to identify, formulate, and solve complex
engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science, and
(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
(3) an ability to communicate effectively with a range of
(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
(7) an ability to acquire and apply new knowledge as needed,
using appropriate learning strategies.
