Electrical Engineering Undergraduate Assessment

Program Educational Objectives

The Electrical Engineering Degree program and the Computer Engineering Degree Program have the same program educational objectives. These are:

PEO 1: Graduates will succeed in pursuing their chosen career path. The primary indicator of success is that graduates will establish a reputation among their peers for engineering expertise and sound ethical judgment. Other indicators of success include:

  1. Achieving professional advancement with increasing responsibility;
  2. Engaging in technology-based entrepreneurial activities;
  3. Engaging in advanced study in engineering graduate programs or related areas.

PEO 2: Graduates will engage in a continuous process of life-long learning. Evidence of such engagement includes activities such as:

  1. Staying abreast of emerging technologies;
  2. Obtaining new skills or developing proficiencies with tools and programming/hardware description languages;
  3. Actively participating in professional communities.

Student Outcomes

The assessment section provides a summary of the procedures used to assess progress toward meeting the mission of the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering. The areas assessed are the students, the faculty and staff, the curriculum, and the facilities. Assessment tools are used continuously to monitor the quality of our program and our graduates, changes in the curriculum, teaching methods, and lab practices are implemented as necessary to maintain high quality.

  1. An ability to identify, formulate, and solve complex engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science, and mathematics
  2. 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
  3. An ability to communicate effectively with a range of audiences
  4. An ability to recognize ethical and professional responsibilities in engineering situations and make informed judgements, which must consider the impact of engineering solutions in global, economic, environmental, and societal contexts
  5. 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
  6. An ability to develop and conduct appropriate experimentation, analyze and interpret data, and use engineering judgment to draw conclusions
  7. An ability to acquire and apply new knowledge as needed, using appropriate learning strategies
