Success in their chosen profession as evidenced by:      

  • career satisfaction
  • career advancement (e.g. promotion/raises, new jobs/positions, leadership roles, professional license)
  • life-long learning (e.g. continued education, technical training, professional development)
  • professional visibility (e.g. publications, presentations, patents, inventions, awards, involvement in professional societies and standards bodies)
  • entrepreneurial activities.

or

Success in continued studies as evidenced by:

  • satisfaction with the decision to further their education
  • graduate and professional degrees earned
  • academic credits earned

Student Outcomes

The graduates of the Electrical Engineering program must have:

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