Electrical Engineering and Computer Science

ABET Accreditation

The Electrical Engineering and Computer Science Department offers two undergraduate degree programs: 
  • Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering ​(BS in EE)
  • Bachelor of Science in Computer Science and Engineering (BS in CSE)

Both programs are accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission (EAC) of ABET,http://www.abet.org/
The BS in CSE program is also accredited by the Computing Accreditation Commission (CAC) of ABET, http://www.abet.org/

Both degree programs rely on a common scientific and mathematical foundation and possess common interests in electric circuits, electronics, signals and systems and digital systems. ​ These programs are designed to offer students opportunities to prepare for careers in a rapidly-changing profession, whether they choose after graduation to enter industry, academia, business or civil service. ​ These programs also prepare students for graduate or advanced professional studies.

BS in EE Program Educational Objectives

The Program Educational Objectives of the BSEE program are as follows:

  1. Graduates are employable within the discipline or closely related field or are able to pursue graduate education.
  2. Graduates are engaged in pursuing professional endeavors as evidenced by
    1. Continuing education
    2. Professional activities/visibility
    3. Entrepreneurial activities

Students in the Electrical Engineering undergraduate degree program will attain the following (EAC) outcomes by the time of graduation: 

  1. EAC Outcome #1: An ability to identify, formulate, and solve complex engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science, and mathematics.
  2. EAC Outcome #2: An ability to apply engineering design to produce solutions that meet specified needs with consideration of public health, safety, and welfare, as well as global, cultural, social, environmental, and economic factors.
  3. EAC Outcome #3: An ability to communicate effectively with a range of audiences.
  4. EAC Outcome #4: An ability to recognize ethical and professional responsibilities in engineering situations and make informed judgments, which must consider the impact of engineering solutions in global, economic, environmental, and societal contexts.
  5. EAC Outcome #5: An ability to function effectively on a team whose members together provide leadership, create a collaborative and inclusive environment, establish goals, plan tasks, and meet objectives.
  6. EAC Outcome #6: An ability to develop and conduct appropriate experimentation, analyze and interpret data, and use engineering judgment to draw conclusions.
  7. EAC Outcome #7: An ability to acquire and apply new knowledge as needed, using appropriate learning strategies.
