The Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering (including the degree-completion option) is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, http://www.abet.org. Read more below.
The objective of the Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering 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.
- Are successfully employed due to their solid engineering foundation and ability to learn and apply new technology.
- Lead others by using their effective problem solving and communication skills.
- Are responsible engineers with an awareness of ethical and social-cultural issues.
- Are effective contributors to multidisciplinary teams.
The bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering is designed to prepare graduates for responsible engineering positions in design, development, research, applications, and operation in the fields of communications, control systems, robotics, digital signal processing systems, electromagnetics, digital and analog electronic circuits, physical electronics, computer-aided design and power systems. The curriculum is built around a strong basic core of mathematics, physics and engineering science. This is followed by intermediate courses in electrical engineering topics and finally a senior elective sequence including a senior design seminar and terminating in a capstone design course.
By the choice of senior elective sequence, comprehensive coverage is provided in any one of the above fields.
Laboratory facilities are available in the engineering buildings allowing for basic as well as more advanced laboratory instruction in electronics, digital signal processing, control systems, microelectronics, communications, power, and digital systems.
The EE program uses the Student Learning Outcomes (ABET 1-7) listed below to meet the Program Educational Objectives:
- 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.
