Program Educational  Objectives

(ABET Criterion 2)


The Educational Objectives of the Electrical Engineering Program are to produce graduates who:


•PEO1:   Are thoroughly trained in methods of analysis, including the mathematical and computational skills appropriate for Electrical engineering problem solving.

•PEO2:   Have developed the skills pertinent to the design of Electrical engineering systems, including the ability to formulate problems, to think creatively, to synthesize information, to work collaboratively, and to communicate effectively, in at least four of the following major Electrical engineering areas: environmental, structures, transportation, geotechnical and water resources.

•PEO3:   Are able to use current experimental and data analysis techniques for Electrical engineering applications.

•PEO4:   Are prepared for successful Electrical engineering careers through training in basic management, business and public policy topics and will continue to learn and adapt to changing technologies, procedures and concepts in Electrical engineering.

•PEO5:   Have an understanding of their professional and ethical responsibilities.

•PEO6:   Will demonstrate that they possess the skills and knowledge necessary to function effectively in roles of leadership and service to the public, in the communities where they live and work.
