ELEC - ABET Accreditation


ABET Accreditation: Electrical Engineering


The B.S. Degree in Electrical Engineering is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET.

Mission

The mission of the Department of Electrical Engineering is to provide undergraduate and graduate level education in electrical engineering, perform research and other scholarly activities, and to furnish service to the state, nation, industry, and the profession.

Program Educational Objectives (PEOs)

The Electrical Engineering department prepares graduates whose career and professional accomplishments, within three to five years after graduation, include:
  1. Demonstration of a fundamental understanding and skill level in mathematics, science, and basic electrical engineering that has enabled them to succeed in more advanced courses and has served them well in the understanding of new technology.
  2. Demonstration of an understanding in adequate detail about selected specific areas of electrical engineering as a critical step in career development.
  3. Proficient application of knowledge using state-of-the-art approaches derived from engineering sciences and practice to produce practical solutions to electrical engineering problems.
  4. Demonstration of technical and decision-making processes and the human interactions necessary to produce viable, responsible, and sustainable technological solutions.
  5. Engagement in lifelong learning, which may include postgraduate education, for successful adaptation to technological and cultural changes and to foster adept functioning in society.
