Program Educational Objectives
The undergraduate EE program educational objectives are to equip individuals who, after graduation and initial work experience,
- provide innovative and state-of-the-art approaches to solving complex technical problems through application of sound electrical engineering principles and make high quality technical decisions based on accumulated knowledge, experience, wisdom and common sense.
- create positive organizational impact through individual contribution and teamwork with a commitment to working with others of diverse culture and interdisciplinary backgrounds.
- demonstrate professional stewardship and ethical responsibility and exemplify a productive member of society by serving their communities and society.
- illustrate initiative and successful career growth through measurable and impactful contributions that strongly support the organization’s core high-level goals, accompanied by lifelong learning through graduate work, professional development and self-study, leading to increases in organizational responsibility.
All graduates will have:
- 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.
