We provide graduate programs and an ABET-accredited undergraduate program that are accessible to a diverse group of students-students of different racial and cultural backgrounds, full-time students as well as those who have considerable work and family commitments outside their academic learning and students with a wide variety of work experiences.
Undergraduate Program Educational Objectives and Student Outcomes
The bachelor of science in electrical engineering program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, https://www.abet.org/.
Program Educational Objectives
The educational objectives of the bachelor of science in electrical engineering program are to produce graduates who, within a few years of graduation, will:
- Demonstrate professional advancement as productive practicing engineers who continuously develop their technical expertise, as demanded by the rapidly changing technologies
- Attain enhanced and broadened knowledge via graduate education in either engineering or other fields such as sciences, mathematics, business, medicine and law
The student who completes the electrical engineering program or the computer engineering program will have attained the following:
- an ability to identify, formulate, and solve complex engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science, and mathematics.
- 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 economic factors.
- an ability to communicate effectively with a range of audiences.
- 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.
- 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.
- an ability to develop and conduct appropriate experimentation, analyze and interpret data, and use engineering judgment to draw conclusions.
- an ability to acquire and apply new knowledge as needed, using appropriate learning strategies.
Graduate Program Objectives and Student Outcomes
- To prepare professionals who can contribute to advanced engineering solutions.
- To train leaders who can independently assess and effectively communicate technical information.
- To provide students with advanced knowledge and training for the pursuit of innovative research.
