The mission of the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering
is to provide our students with educational experiences which give
them a sound basis for professional practice, advanced education,
active citizenship, and lifelong learning. At its core is the goal
that students learn the fundamental principles of electrical and
computer engineering and master engineering methods to solve
challenging and diverse problems. Further, the department strives to
have each student develop the leadership and communications skills
necessary to relate these solutions to both technical and
non-technical communities. The faculty is dedicated to accomplishing
this mission through the integration of teaching and research.
The educational objectives of the Bachelor of Science in Computer
Engineering and the Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering specify that:
- The graduate will have demonstrated a professional impact in their employment or graduate work.
- The graduate will be a leader among their peers and/or a leader in innovation.
- The graduate will conduct themselves in a professional and ethical manner.
- The graduate will understand the societal impact of their work in a global context.
The student outcomes for the Electrical and Computer Engineering Programs specify that, by the time of graduation, all graduates will have:
- an ability to identify, formulate, and solve complex
engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science, and
- 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
- an ability to communicate effectively with a range of
- 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
- an ability to acquire and apply new knowledge as
needed, using appropriate learning strategies.
