Program Educational Objectives
Program educational objectives are broad statements that describe the career and professional accomplishments that the academic program is preparing the graduates to achieve. The electrical engineering program is preparing graduates to attain the following objectives within a few years of graduation:
- Be productive and successful in their chosen career field by assuming greater degrees of responsibility and/or assuming leadership roles
- Actively participate in the affairs of their profession and continue with their professional development
Student outcomes are narrower statements that describe what students are expected to know and be able to do by the time of graduation. In support of the program objectives, graduates of the EE program will have:
- 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 multidisciplinary 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.
