The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering offers an undergraduate program of study in Electrical Engineering accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET (https://www.abet.org) under the General Criteria and the Program Criteria for Electrical, Computer, Communications, Telecommunication(s) and Similarly Named Engineering Programs.

Accreditation ensures that certain academic programs meet established standards for engineering and technical education. The department has adopted the following Program Educational Objectives; we want our graduates to:

  • Apply their knowledge of mathematics, science, and engineering to become successful leaders in technology and its applications, in industry and academia.
  • Take an interdisciplinary and integrative approach to addressing and solving engineering challenges in broad societal contexts.
  • Have the intellectual independence to critically evaluate information, and the planning skills to take well-informed and creative courses of action.
  • Practice the habits of lifelong and interdisciplinary learning, appropriate for industrial and academic careers.

Students who successfully complete our program will have satisfied the following ABET student outcomes:

  1. An ability to identify, formulate, and solve complex engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science, and mathematics
  2. 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
  3. An ability to communicate effectively with a range of audiences
  4. 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
  5. 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
  6. An ability to develop and conduct appropriate experimentation, analyze and interpret data, and use engineering judgment to draw conclusions
  7. An ability to acquire and apply new knowledge as needed, using appropriate learning strategies
