Electrical Engineering Mission and Objectives


To provide an outstanding education for engineers in electrical engineering and to develop future leaders.


To provide students with the education for a rewarding and successful career.


Within 5 years after graduating:

  • Graduates should be prepared for entry-level engineering jobs, for graduate school, or for entrepreneurial activities based on their rigorous education in the fundamentals and applications of electrical engineering, including laboratory and design work.
  • Graduates should be able to pursue a variety of careers, based on a curriculum that allows for a balance between a deep education in one area and a broad education in several areas.
  • Graduates should be able to work effectively on diverse teams, to communicate in written and oral form, to practice life-long learning, and to develop the professional skills and ethics needed for successful leadership positions.


The outcome that we desire is that our graduates demonstrate:

  • An ability to apply knowledge of mathematics, science, and engineering.
  • An ability to design and conduct experiments, as well as to analyze and interpret data.
  • 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.
  • An ability to function on multi-disciplinary teams.
  • An ability to identify, formulate, and solve engineering problems.
  • An understanding of professional and ethical responsibility.
  • An ability to communicate effectively.
  • The broad education necessary to understand the impact of engineering solutions in a global, economic, environmental, and societal context.
  • A recognition of the need for an ability to engage in life-long learning.
  • A knowledge of contemporary issues.
  • An ability to use the techniques, skills, and modern engineering tools necessary for engineering practice.
