Electrical Engineering is one of the most dynamic fields of engineering today. New technologies are under constant development and new industries are emerging as a result of the efforts of electrical engineers.
The Electrical Engineering curriculum provides a well-rounded education to meet the needs and challenges of our modern society. The student will receive a solid background in mathematics and science as well as a strong foundation in the major areas of electrical engineering (circuits and systems, communications, computers, electronics, electromagnetic fields, controls, electric machinery and power) supported by practical-oriented laboratory assignments. The student can pursue special areas of interest through several elective courses. The student will be well prepared to be successful in the workforce and be productive. Upon graduation the student will be well prepared to be successful in the workforce and to be productive.
One of the key features of engineering that sets it apart from other disciplines is design. Design is the creative process of putting ideas, components, and systems together to develop solutions to problems and needs. The curriculum encourages design-oriented thinking at a fundamental level and culminates in the capstone senior design course sequence in which many factors such as technical, economic, environmental, ethical and legal, health and safety, manufacturability, political social, sustainability, and realistic standards are considered.
The ability of the engineer to communicate in writing and speech is very important as the modern engineer is expected to express technical concepts and defend technical decisions in front of non-technical people. Therefore, courses in English, social science, and the humanities are vital in the electrical engineering curriculum.
To provide a world-class education preparing graduates to be successful in professional engineering practice.
We desire that students after graduation accomplish one or more of the following objectives:
Objective 1: Professional Practice
Electrical engineering graduates will be successful in professional practice in engineering.
Objective 2: Post-graduate Education
Electrical engineering graduates will be successful in pursuing advanced education.
Objective 3: Advancement
Electrical engineering graduates will successfully advance in their careers.
The Electrical Engineering program has the following Program Outcomes:
Students will attain an ability to apply knowledge of mathematics, science, and engineering.
Students will attain an ability to design and conduct experiments, as well as to analyze and interpret data.
Students will attain an ability to design a system, component, or process to meet desired needs within realistic constraints such as economic, environmental, social, political, ethical, health and safety, manufacturability, and sustainability.
Students will attain an ability to function on multidisciplinary teams.
Students will attain an ability to identify, formulate, and solve engineering problems.
Students will attain an understanding of professional and ethical responsibility.
Students will attain an ability to communicate effectively.
Impact of Engineering
