Electrical Engineering

Educational Objectives

The Electrical Engineering Program is based on a solid foundation of the mathematical and physical sciences, engineering science and design, principles of professional engineering practice, and liberal education which together prepare our graduates to:

  1. Succeed in careers as practicing electrical and/or computer engineers in a wide range of industrial, governmental, and educational work environments;
  2. Participate as active and effective members of engineering teams (possibly multi-disciplinary), which may be composed of people of diverse educational and cultural backgrounds;
  3. Lead engineering teams in an effective, fair, and responsible manner;
  4. Communicate effectively, in both written and oral forms, about their engineering activities and the results of those activities;
  5. Educate themselves throughout their careers about advancements within their discipline and the role of their discipline in society in general;
  6. Practice their profession in an ethically, socially, and environmentally responsible manner.

Program Outcomes

Graduates of the Electrical Engineering Program will be prepared to contribute effectively as engineers in a diverse and multidisciplinary work environment. Specifically, graduates of the Electrical Engineering Program will have:

  1. an ability to apply the fundamental principles of mathematics, science, and engineering to the solution of real world electrical engineering problems;
  2. an ability to design and conduct electrical engineering experiments, as well as to analyze and interpret data;
  3. an ability to design electrical and electronic components, circuits, systems, and processes to meet desired needs within realistic constraints;
  4. an ability to work effectively as members of diverse multidisciplinary technical teams;
  5. an ability to identify, formulate, and solve practical electrical engineering problems;
  6. an understanding of professional and ethical responsibilities in the engineering profession;
  7. an ability to communicate effectively in written, oral, and graphical forms;
  8. the broad education necessary to make appropriate engineering recommendations and decisions in a contemporary workplace where there are diverse global, societal, economic, and environmental constraints;
  9. a recognition of the need for, and an ability to engage in, lifelong learning;
  10. a knowledge of contemporary issues relevant to the engineering profession;
  11. an ability to use the principles, techniques, skills, and modern software and hardware engineering tools necessary for safe and successful electrical engineering practice.
