ELECTRICAL AND ELECTRONICS ENGINEERING


Undergraduate Program

 


UNDERGRADUATE PROGRAM EDUCATIONAL OBJECTIVES

The following program educational objectives are career and professional accomplishments that our graduates are expected to achieve within a few years after graduation. Our graduates will globally work in leading academic or R&D positions where they:

  • apply fundamental engineering knowledge towards identifying problems and pursuing realistic and innovative solutions, while remaining sensitive to their professional responsibilities, including ethical, societal and environmental issues.
  • assume leadership roles in the profession by demonstrating technical and scientific competence, communicating clearly and concisely, and functioning effectively on multidisciplinary teams, while continuing to engage in life-long learning.

 


UNDERGRADUATE PROGRAM STUDENT OUTCOMES

The associated program learning outcomes, and relationship to ABET Criteria 3 (a-k) are:

  1. Foundations: Understanding of and ability to apply fundamental science and engineering of permanent value; achieved through fundamental courses on Mathematics and Basic Sciences. (ABET Criteria 3a, 3b)
  2. Breadth: Familiarity with the diverse areas of Electrical and Electronics Engineering; achieved through courses that teach and provide experience in Electrical Engineering topics. “Breadth” implies inclusion of a range of topics with coverage and balance appropriate to the program. (ABET Criteria 3a, 3b)
  3. Depth: Ability to apply in depth knowledge of one or more specializations within the diverse fields of Electrical and Electronics Engineering; produced mainly through senior year courses on individual specialization areas of Electrical Engineering. ”Depth” implies sequences of related topics that build upon one another, and include at least one topical area at an advanced level. (ABET Criteria 3e, 3i, 3k)
  4. Design: Ability to participate in creative, synthetic, integrative activities of Electrical Engineering design; developed through the design component included in many courses that aim to provide depth of knowledge, and through the specific two-semester 2 credit Electrical Engineering Design course. (ABET Criteria 3c, 3e, 3i, 3j, 3k)
  5. Life-long learning: Desire and ability to keep learning throughout life; promoted through assigning research projects that require students to go beyond the knowledge they have gained in the classroom and through their text-books. (ABET Criteria 3i)
  6. Communication skills: Ability to express ideas persuasively, in written and oral form; developed through the written and oral presentations that the students are required to make in their courses. (ABET Criteria 3g)
  7. Social skills: Ability to work with others, in professional and social settings; addressed in the collective work that the students are required to accomplish especially within the scope of their laboratory and project work. (ABET Criteria 3d)
  8. Global view: Appreciation of diversity in the world and in intellectual areas; explicitly addressed in many courses which also aim to provide breadth of knowledge; also explicitly addressed in the senior year compulsory Electrical Engineering Design course. (ABET Criteria 3h and 3j)
  9. Professional ethics: Ability to recognize and appreciate importance of ethical standards in professional work; explicitly addressed in many courses, starting with the freshman year EE 100 Introduction to Electrical Engineering course, and ending with the senior year compulsory Electrical Engineering Design course. (ABET Criteria 3f)
