Program Educational Objectives
Program educational objectives are the life and career accomplishments that the program is preparing
graduates to achieve.
The Electrical and Computer Engineering Programs prepare graduates to:
1.
Apply knowledge in service to community and family and enga
ge in lifelong learning through
personal study and continuing education.
2.
Develop a fulfilling profession which may include employment in industry or academia,
technology

based entrepreneurship, and postgraduate study in engineering or other disciplines.
3.
Ma
ke innovative contributions to science and technology and serve in responsible positions of
leadership.
4.
Be an example of faith, character, and high professional ethics.
Program Learning Outcomes
(defined by ABET
–

order to prepare students to achieve the program educational objectives after graduation, the
program curriculum provides students with the following skills, abilities, and knowledge:
1.
Fundamentals:
An ability to apply knowledge of mathematics (differential, integral, and
multivariate calculus; linear algebra; complex variables; differential equations; discrete math; and
probability), science (Newtonian mechanics; electricity and magnetism; and introd
uctory
chemistry), computer fundamentals (programming languages; computer organization; and
software/hardware interfaces) and engineering science (signals and systems, electromagnetics, and
electronic devices).
2.
Experiments and data analysis:
An ability to design and conduct experiments, as well as to
analyze and interpret data.
3.

An ability
to design a system component or process to meet desired needs within
realistic constrains such as economic, environmental, social, political, ethical, health and safety,
manufacturability, and sustainability.
