Program Education Objectives

The program educational objectives (PEOs) of the BSCpE, BSEE, and BSME programs are to produce graduates who, within a few years of graduation, will: 

  1. Apply broad industry-relevant communication skills that will enable their career and professional accomplishments.
  2. Demonstrate strong abilities in the fundamentals of engineering.  
  3. Apply the knowledge from their undergraduate education to systematically solve engineering problems using the appropriate tools and technology.
  4. Apply the design (including interdisciplinary systems) and laboratory skills expected of practicing engineers. 
  5. Flourish professionally in an increasingly global and dynamic marketplace and work environment.

Student Outcomes

Student Outcome 1: an ability to identify, formulate, and solve complex engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science, and mathematics

Student Outcome 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

Student Outcome 3: an ability to communicate effectively with a range of audiences

Student Outcome 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 

Student Outcome 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 

Student Outcome 6: an ability to develop and conduct appropriate experimentation, analyze and interpret data, and use engineering judgment to draw conclusions 

Student Outcome 7: an ability to acquire and apply new knowledge as needed, using appropriate learning strategies.
