The mission of the department is to prepare students to compete globally in their profession, and to achieve excellence in undergraduate and graduate education, research, and public service.
Program Educational Objectives
The electrical engineering curriculum at Southern University is dedicated to preparing students for productive careers in the state, nation, and the world. Within a few years after graduation, graduates of the electrical engineering program will:
PEO-1: Have developed the skills pertinent to design electrical engineering systems, including the ability to formulate problems clearly, to think creatively, to synthesize information globally, to work collaboratively, and to communicate effectively.
PEO-2: Have an understanding of ethical and professional responsibilities when using data analysis, computational skills, and experimental techniques to solve electrical engineering problems.
PEO-3: Have demonstrated the knowledge necessary to function effectively in roles of leadership and service to the public; necessary preparation for this is gained in areas such as basic management, business and public policy and this preparation will allow graduates to continue learning and adapting to evolving technologies, procedures and concepts in electrical engineering.
