In 2004, the Florida Board of Governors adopted a resolution requiring universities in the State University System to devise an Academic Learning Compact (ALC) for each baccalaureate degree program. The ALC is envisioned as a compact or agreement between university and student that will establish a minimum level of competence at the bachelor’s degree level.
The ALC includes three components:
- Student Learning Outcomes (SLO): what skills each student will acquire
- Individual Student Assessment (ISA): the evaluation instrument(s)
- Assessment Criteria: expected level of achievement in the ISA
Student Learning Outcomes for the BSEE Degree Program
Skills students will acquire in the BSEE degree are:
Content Knowledge Skills
- Identify, describe, and interpret mathematics, science and engineering principles to electrical engineering problems.
Critical Thinking Skills
- Design and conduct electrical engineering experiments and analyze and interpret the data collected.
- Design a system, component or process to meet desired needs within realistic constraints such as economic, environmental, social, political, ethical, health and safety, manufacturability and sustainability
- Convey technical data and design information effectively for a range of audiences using a variety of methods and media.
