Objectives and Outcomes
The Electrical and Computer Engineering programs assure that graduates are prepared to:
- devise, choose, and use diagrams or other models to design systems and to communicate engineering ideas.
- recognize situations that demand new information, locate it, and use it in their work.
- give oral and written reports for communication with peers and decision-makers.
- coordinate with colleagues from their own and other disciplines.
- recognize their ethical obligations and social responsibilities and maintain awareness of non-technical perspectives.
As specified by the accrediting body, these engineering programs assure that students will be
- apply knowledge of mathematics, science, and engineering;
- design and conduct experiments, as well as to analyze and interpret data ;
- 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;
- function on multidisciplinary teams;
- identify, formulate, and solve engineering problems ;
- demonstrate professional and ethical responsibility;
- communicate effectively;
- use the broad education necessary to understand the impact of engineering solutions in a global, economic, environmental, and societal context;
- recognize the need for, and an ability to engage in, life-long learning;
- discuss contemporary issues;
- use the techniques, skills, and modern engineering tools, necessary for engineering practice;
