AV Engineering Program Accreditation

The Antelope Valley Engineering Program (AVEP) consists of two degrees accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, http://www.abet.org: the B.S. in Mechanical Engineering - Antelope Valley and the B.S. in Electrical Engineering - Antelope Valley. Degrees are awarded by the CSULB College of Engineering.

 

Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering - Antelope Valley 

Program Educational Objectives

The objectives of the B.S. in Electrical Engineering - Antelope Valley program are to produce engineers who can innovate and advance in their chosen careers in industry, academia, and public institutions, while making creative contributions to the field of electrical engineering. The Program Educational Objectives are outlined below.

Our graduates:

  1. Are successfully employed at the place of their choice.
  2. Integrate well within their working environment and lead others by using their effective problem-solving and communication skills.
  3. Remain technically competent and responsible engineers with an awareness of ethical and socio-cultural issues.
  4. Continue to progress with their engineering skills by learning and applying new technology.

Student Outcomes

The EE student outcomes are the same as the ABET student outcomes (a) through (k) as listed below:
a. an ability to apply knowledge of mathematics, science, and engineering
b. an ability to design and conduct experiments, as well as to analyze and interpret data
c. an ability to design a system, component, or process to meet desired needs within realistic constraints such as economic, environmental, social, political, ethical, health and safety, manufacturability, and sustainability
d. an ability to function on multidisciplinary teams
e. an ability to identify, formulate, and solve engineering problems
f. an understanding of professional and ethical responsibility
g. an ability to communicate effectively
h. the broad education necessary to understand the impact of engineering solutions in a global, economic, environmental, and societal context
i. a recognition of the need for, and an ability to engage in life-long learning
j. a knowledge of contemporary issues
