ABET Accreditation

The Electrical Engineering program and the Computer Engineering program are both accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET.

Graduates of the Electrical Engineering program are expected to:

  • Be competent and productive in the practice of modern Electrical Engineering
  • Engage in careers that provide opportunities for growth and leadership
  • Keep informed of new technological developments and contribute to the expansion of engineering knowledge

To assess how well the electrical engineering program’s educational objectives and student outcomes are achieved, the ECE Department performs extensive course evaluations, senior design project evaluations, and gathers input from industrial advisors, recruiters, and interviews of graduating students. The BSEE Program has also been designed so that specific outcomes are attained in support of these objectives.

The Electrical Engineering curriculum provides the students with the knowledge of probability and statistics, mathematics through differential and integral calculus, linear algebra, complex variables, and discrete mathematics, basic sciences, computer science, and engineering sciences necessary to analyze and design complex electrical and electronic devices, software, and systems containing hardware and software components. To ensure that the graduates of the program consistently accomplish the objectives described above, the curriculum has been designed so that the students demonstrate the following outcomes by the time they graduate:

      1. An ability to identify, formulate, and solve complex engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science, and mathematics
      2. 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 factors
      3. An ability to communicate effectively with a range of audiences
      4. 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
      5. 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
      6. An ability to develop and conduct appropriate experimentation, analyze and interpret data, and use engineering judgment to draw conclusions
      7. An ability to acquire and apply new knowledge as needed, using appropriate learning strategies.
