B.S. in Electrical Engineering

Students will:

  • Have an ability to to identify, formulate, and solve complex engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science, and mathematics.
  • Have 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.
  • Have an ability to communicate effectively with a range of audiences.
  • Have 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.
  • Have 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.
  • Have an ability to develop and conduct appropriate experimentation, analyze and interpret data, and use engineering judgment to draw conclusions.
  • Have an ability to acquire and apply new knowledge as needed, using appropriate learning strategies.
