Student Outcomes

Students in the Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering program are expected to attain the following learning outcomes. By the time our students graduate, they should have developed an ability to:

  • identify, formulate, and solve complex engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science, and mathematics
  • 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
  • communicate effectively with a range of audiences
  • 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
  • function effectively on a team whose members together provide leadership, create a collaborative and inclusive environment, establish goals, plan tasks, and meet objectives
  • develop and conduct appropriate experimentation, analyze and interpret data, and use engineering judgment to draw conclusions
  • acquire and apply new knowledge as needed, using appropriate learning strategies.
