Anna & Terry in an EE Lab

Our undergraduate programs in Electrical Engineering and in Biomedical Engineering are distinguished by three attributes.  First, through foundational courses they both develop a core skill set that can be applied to not only problems in electrical and biomedical engineering but to other engineering areas, business, etc.  Second, both programs have a significant hands-on component through laboratory and design experiences that enable you to apply what is learned in classroom.  Finally, both programs allow students ample opportunities to explore their own unique interests as the curriculum is designed to accommodate a great number of technical electives.

Electrical Engineering Objectives & Outcomes

Educational Outcomes

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 engineers in a wide range of industrial, governmental, and/or 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 written, oral and graphical 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.
