The mission of the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering is to provide a modern, high quality educational experience for all of our students. We provide the knowledge and principles on which electrical engineering and computer engineering are founded in order to graduate engineers who are technically competent, creative, articulate, and socially aware.
The primary objective for the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering is to prepare graduates to engage successfully in the practice of electrical engineering and/or computer engineering by obtaining employment or admission to graduate school. Interested individuals are invited to visit the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering webpage for current information regarding our objectives.
The B.S. degree program in electrical engineering is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, http://www.abet.org.
Undergraduate Academic Programs
The faculty of electrical and computer engineering offer courses leading to the Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering (B.S.E.E.) degree and the Bachelor of Science in Computer Engineering (B.S.Com.E.) degree.
The curriculum in each degree includes a strong foundation in the electrical, computer, mathematical, and physical sciences. The Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering (B.S.E.E.) degree has more of an emphasis in the fields related to power, electromagnetics, and control. The Bachelor of Science in Computer Engineering (B.S.Com.E.) degree emphasizes concepts related to electronics and the computer engineering field.
Students majoring in electrical engineering and computer engineering with an interest in a foreign language may choose to earn dual degrees through the International Engineering/Science and Language Program.
Based on both the mission statement and the primary objective of the Department, the objectives of the electrical engineering and the electrical and computer engineering programs are to provide graduates with:
- The knowledge to meet employer needs should they choose a professional career; and
- The knowledge to engage in advanced study should they choose to continue their education.
Program Learning Objectives
Students earning a Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering programs will be able to:
1. Identify, formulate, and solve complex engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science, and mathematics.
2. 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. Communicate effectively with a range of [technical/management/non-technical/etc.] audiences.
4. 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. Function effectively on a team whose members together provide leadership, create a collaborative and inclusive environment, establish goals, plan tasks, and meet objectives.
6. Develop and conduct appropriate experimentation, analyze and interpret data, and use engineering judgment to draw conclusions.
7. Acquire and apply new knowledge as needed, using appropriate learning strategies.
