Accreditation

The undergraduate Electrical Engineering and Computer Engineering programs are accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET). The ABET-associated Program Educational Objectives are broad statements that describe the career and professional accomplishments that the undergraduate Electrical and Computer Engineering program is preparing graduates to achieve approximately five years after graduation.  The ABET-associated Student Outcomes describe the knowledge, capabilities, and characteristics that we expect our students to have attained upon successful completion of the program.  The Program Educational Objectives and Student Outcomes for the Electrical and Computer Engineering program are given below: 

Program Educational Objectives – Electrical Engineering

1.  Graduates will be successful with careers in industry, academia or the public sector, or in achieving advanced degrees in engineering or other disciplines.  Their activities will be characterized by an adherence to sound professional practices and the highest ethical principles.

2. Electrical Engineering graduates who follow a career path in Electrical Engineering will demonstrate peer-recognized expertise in at least one of the core areas of electrical engineering, such as circuits, communications, signal processing, controls, electromagnetics, power and energy, electronics, robotics, or digital systems.

3.  Graduates will demonstrate the desire and capability to grow continuously in professional ability with life-long learning through graduate study or professional improvement opportunities and through self-study.

4.  Graduates will exhibit leadership and initiative to advance professional and organizational goals and facilitate the achievement of others in existing as well as new enterprises.

5.  Graduates will communicate effectively, both orally and in writing.

6.  Graduates will function well on multidisciplinary teams to solve distributed tasks that may span enterprises, geographies, and cultures.
