Electrical Engineering Undergraduate Program

Program Mission

The mission of the undergraduate Electrical Engineering program in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) is to provide a balanced education in fundamental principles, design methodologies, and practical experiences in electrical engineering and in general engineering topics through which graduates can enter into and sustain lifelong professional careers of innovation and creativity.

Program Educational Objectives

Graduates of the Electrical Engineering program will:

  • Be recognized as innovative technical experts who demonstrate advanced understandings of the state-of-the-art in electrical engineering, as well as professional, social and ethical responsibilities.
  • Emerge as technical leaders through their own individual contributions and their abilities to work with and influence others.
  • Function as effective entrepreneurs who nurture new technologies from concept to commercialization

Program Outcomes

By the time of graduation, electrical engineering students will attain:

  • 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.
  • An ability to apply business planning, financing and marketing strategies necessary to nurture new technologies from concept to commercialization

The Bachelor of Engineering in Electrical Engineering program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission (EAC) of ABET
