Program Objectives

The ECE Program Educational Objectives describe what graduates of the program are expected to accomplish within five years of graduation. Graduates of the Electrical and Computer Engineering programs should demonstrate progress in four areas:

  • Leadership: Graduates will be known for leadership, innovation, entrepreneurship or responsibility as appropriate for their career stage.
  • Education: Graduates will continue their education through a combination of independent learning, continuing education and advanced degrees.
  • Adaptability: Graduates will demonstrate flexibility in a career that utilizes skills and knowledge gained in their undergraduate engineering program.
  • Participation: Graduates will be known as active participants in a wide variety of both professional and non-professional activities, including jobs, professional societies, community activities/service, or government or public service.

Student Outcomes

Electrical engineering

  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
