Objectives

The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering has established the following set of program educational objectives for the Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering:
 

1.      Illuminate: lifelong learning in electrical 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 electrical 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 electrical engineering principles
Alumni should be able to apply the theory and techniques of electrical engineering to innovative real-world solutions.

  

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:
 

  • 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 solutions in a global, economic, environmental, and societal 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 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 the best possible education to our students
