ELECTRICAL ENGINEERING AND COMPUTER SCIENCE

Mission Statement

The mission of the department is to provide students with a strong foundation in the traditional and contemporary areas of electrical engineering, computer engineering, and computer science. The objective of the undergraduate programs is to educate students in science and engineering so that they can conceive and solve technological problems in society. Social and humanistic issues are also emphasized in the general education component of the program to provide breadth in education. The undergraduate programs provide graduates with the knowledge, aptitudes, and attitudes which prepare them for corporate and governmental entry level jobs or to pursue further education at the graduate level. The objective of the graduate programs is to enable students to synthesize, interpret, and apply research and other forms of knowledge for the advancement of the discipline.

BS in Electrical Engineering Program Educational Objectives (PEOs)

Based on the inputs received from our program constituencies, the department has adopted the following objectives for the BSEE program:

Objective 1 (PEO 1)
The alumni, in the first several years after receiving their baccalaureate degree, will be productive and successful in the professional practice of electrical engineering, as evidenced by:
a. Job satisfaction and contributions towards the success of one's employers
b. Effective participation and leadership on engineering teams
c. Identifying and solving real-world problems
d. Managing increased and varied responsibilities
e. Job-related awards, promotions/raises, and professional accomplishments (e.g., patents, inventions)

Objective 2 (PEO 2)
The alumni, in the first several years after receiving their baccalaureate degree, will be successful in pursuing continuing education, as evidenced by:
a. Effective progression towards an advanced post-undergraduate degree or professional licensure/certication
b. Participation in professional societies, professional conferences, and meetings
c. Participation in lifelong learning by adapting to new technologies, tools and methodologies in electrical engineering, and responding to the challenges of a changing environment
