Student Outcomes


The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering has established an assessment process that is used for continuous improvement of the undergraduate program and the department’s educational operations. Direct assessment of student performance on the educational outcomes via course committees is used.  The course committees are asked, as part of the course committee report, to evaluate specific outcomes.

Engineering Criteria
A - an ability to apply knowledge of mathematics, science, and engineering
B - an ability to design and conduct experiments, as well as to analyze and interpret data
C - an ability to 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
D - an ability to function on multi-disciplinary teams
E - an ability to identify, formulate, and solve engineering problems
F - an understanding of professional and ethical responsibility
G - an ability to communicate effectively
H - the broad education necessary to understand the impact of engineering solutions in global, economic, environmental, and societal context
I - a recognition of the need for, and an ability to engage in life-long learning
J - a knowledge of contemporary issues
K - an ability to use the techniques, skills, and modern engineering tools necessary for engineering practice

EE Program Criteria
1 - knowledge of probability and statistics, including applications to engineering problems
2 - knowledge of mathematics, basic and engineering sciences necessary to analyze and design complex systems
3 - knowledge of advanced mathematics including linear algebra, complex variables and discrete mathematics
