Return to Degree Options Return to: Degree Options

The electrical engineering program prepares graduates for a successful career in the rapidly evolving and intellectually challenging field of electrical engineering. The program provides a broad foundation in traditional and contemporary areas of electrical engineering to support life-long learning and specific enough to provide the necessary skills for a successful entry into professional life. Studies in mathematics and science form the program foundation that prepares the student for depth in the electrical engineering topic of circuits. From this foundation, the principal areas of application are covered, including electronics, digital systems, electromagnetics, electrical machines, controls and communications. Computer-based simulations and laboratory-based applications support theoretical study in each of these areas. Graduates work in a variety of careers including the design, development and testing of systems and components for the aerospace, communications, power distribution and instrumentation industries. The electrical engineering ABET program objectives and outcomes are identified below.

Program Objectives

Our graduates:

  1. Will be employed in electrical engineering related fields or in other career fields in industry, business, academe, government or non-profit organizations
  2. Will continue to enhance their professional skills by participating in professional organizations, completing additional college courses or completing industry-sponsored short courses

Student Learning Outcomes

Electrical engineering graduates will successfully demonstrate the 11 ABET program outcomes:

a) Have an ability to apply knowledge of mathematics, science, and engineering

b) Have an ability to design and conduct experiments, as well as to analyze and interpret data

c) Have 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) Have an ability to function on multidisciplinary teams

e) Have an ability to identify, formulate, and solve engineering problems

f) Have an understanding of professional and ethical responsibility

g) Have an ability to communicate effectively

h) Have the broad education necessary to understand the impact of engineering solutions in a global, economic, environmental, and societal context

i) Have a recognition of the need for, and an ability to engage in lifelong learning

j) Have a knowledge of contemporary issues

k) Have an ability to use the techniques, skills, and modern engineering tools necessary for engineering practice
