Accreditation

Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering

Education backed by experts.

The Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET) assessment criteria are based on the principles of total quality management and continuous improvement. This assessment-accreditation process requires that each program’s mission be consistent with the institutional mission. The mission must be translated into specific program educational objectives and student outcomes that are expected as a result of the educational process. The student outcomes should be measurable, and both objectives and outcomes must be assessed regularly. The results of outcome assessments are used as feedback to make program improvements, and a quality assurance and management process is in place to achieve success.

The electrical engineering and computer engineering programs are accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET.

B.S. Program Educational Objectives
As a framework for the continuous improvement policy, the electrical engineering program has adopted a set of programs educational objectives that describe the anticipated accomplishments of our graduates within a few years of graduation.

The electrical engineering program educational objectives are to produce graduates who

  • function and communicate effectively to solve technical problems;
  • advance professionally to roles of greater electrical engineering responsibilities and/or by transitioning into leadership positions in business, government, and/or education;
  • participate in lifelong learning through the successful completion of advanced degree(s), professional development, and/or engineering certification(s)/licensure; and
  • demonstrate a commitment to community by applying technical skills and knowledge to support various service activities.

Student Outcomes
Graduates of the program will have

  • the ability to identify, formulate, and solve complex engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science, and mathematics;
  • the 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;
  • the ability to communicate effectively with a range of audiences;
  • the 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;
  • the 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;
  • the ability to develop and conduct appropriate experimentation, analyze and interpret data, and use engineering judgment to draw conclusions; and
  • the ability to acquire and apply new knowledge as needed, using appropriate learning strategies.
