Electrical Engineering Program Goals

Provide students with educational experiences that prepare them for fulfilling careers in technology related industries and research institutions and instill in them an appreciation for life-long learning and adaptation so that they may better apply their knowledge and experience to the continually evolving, broad domain of Electrical Engineering.

Offer high-quality instruction that encompasses not only technical content but also makes students aware of the societal implications and ethical issues of technology.

Present a curriculum built on fundamental principles of mathematics, science, and engineering that utilizes departmental disciplinary strengths and gives students the ability to integrate and apply these principles in their careers.

Teach the curriculum through integrated experiences in analysis, design, experimentation, and computation.

Foster an environment where students learn to appreciate and refine fundamental communications skills through the integrated use of research, written reports, and presentations targeted at both similar and diverse audiences.

Challenge students to exercise their knowledge, skills, and creativity through exercises in design and problem resolution in both individual and collaborative forums.

Encourage students, through advising and curriculum structure, to pursue individualized, well-rounded plans of study including elective courses, internships, undergraduate research, and the development of leadership skills, thus providing a basis for professional growth.
