BIEE ABET

Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology

 


Objectives

The ECE Department faculty in co-ordination with the innovation faculty established the following set of program education objectives for the Bachelor of Innovation in Electrical Engineering:

1. Illuminate - lifelong learning in computer engineering

Alumni are expected to learn new and emerging engineering technologies and pursue graduate school or technology careers, including but not limited to technical development, project management, and technical sales.

2.  Investigate - demonstration of computer engineering principles

Alumni should have the ability to find and access information relevant to an application under development and have the ability to understand and approach various engineering problems and convert their solutions into engineering products.

3.  Innovate - creative application of computer engineering principles

Alumni should be able to apply the theory and techniques of electrical engineering to innovative real-world solutions.

While the BIEE program and BSEE program broadly have the same goals, the BIEE program provides students with both the technical and business concepts of engineering.

Learning Outcomes

Program outcomes describe what students are expected to know and be able to do by the time of graduation. These are as follows:

The learning outcomes of innovation core:

  • SLO1 recognize the broader issues in electrical engineering technology-related problems
  • SLO2 understand the technological, business, legal and societal constraints affecting this technology
  • SLO3 communicate the key issues, needs, potential options, and final solution to a challenge.

The learning outcomes of the EE part of BIEE program are the same as ABET (a) to (k) outcomes, shown below, and are assessed on a scale of 1 to 5.

  • An ability to apply knowledge of mathematics, science and engineering.
  • An ability to design and conduct experiments as well as to analyze and interpret data
  • 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
  • An ability to function on multi-disciplinary teams
  • An ability to identify, formulate and solve engineering problems
  • An understanding of professional and ethical responsibility
  • An ability to communicate effectively
  • The broad education necessary to understand the impact of engineering solution in a global, economic, environmental and social context
  • A recognition of the need for, and an ability to engage in life-long learning
  • A knowledge of contemporary issues
  • An ability to use the techniques, skills and modern engineering tools necessary for engineering practice

The objectives are regularly reviewed by the constituents of the department’s programs, including the industrial advisory committee, students in the program, and the faculty of the department.


The objectives are used to focus the undergraduate degree program and assure best possible education of our students.
