Statement of Objectives and Outcomes

Electrical Engineering Undergraduate Program Statement of Objectives

The Electrical Engineering program seeks to prepare graduates who, after the first few years of their professional career, have:

  • Established themselves as practicing engineering professionals in industry or government, or engaged in graduate study.
  • Demonstrated their ability to work successfully as members of a professional team and function effectively as responsible professionals.
  • Demonstrated their ability to adapt to new technology and career challenges.

Desired Outcomes:

Our graduates must demonstrate an ability:
  1. to apply knowledge of mathematics, science, and engineering,
  2. to design and conduct experiments, as well as to analyze and interpret data,
  3. to design a system, component, or process to meet desired needs,
  4. to function on multi-disciplinary teams,
  5. to identify, formulate, and solve engineering problems,
  6. to understand professional and ethical responsibilities,
  7. to communicate effectively,
  8. through the broad education necessary, to understand the impact of engineering solutions in a global and societal context,
  9. to engage in life-long learning, and understand the need for, and have the desire to engage in it,
  10. to understand contemporary issues,
  11. to use the techniques, skills, and modern engineering tools necessary for engineering practice.
