Electrical Engineering and Computer Science

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.
