The Electrical Engineering undergraduate program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET,, under the commission’s General Criteria and Program Criteria for Electrical, Computer, Communications, Telecommunication(s), and Similarly Named Engineering Programs.

Program Educational Objectives

The Electrical Engineering undergraduate program has established the following program educational objectives that are consistent with the mission of the University and the Frank R. Seaver College of Science and Engineering. The objectives describe what graduates are expected to attain within a few years of graduation. The graduates of the Electrical Engineering program will:

  1. Perform effectively as practicing engineers and/or successfully undertake graduate study in electrical engineering or related fields;
  2. Meet the challenges of the future through continuing professional growth; and
  3. Exhibit concern for service and justice through leadership within their profession, as well as the community as a whole.

These program educational objectives were established in consultation with the constituents of the program. To prepare the graduates to accomplish these program educational objectives, the program provides a curriculum with both breadth and depth. Engineering science and design, mathematics, and basic sciences are significant components of the program. In addition to these traditional technical courses, and in keeping with the Jesuit tradition of educating the whole person, the curricula include core requirements in the humanities, communications, and the fine arts. Opportunities for involvement in professional societies, student design competitions, and University co-curricular activities are plentiful and help to accomplish these objectives.

Student Outcomes

The Electrical Engineering undergraduate program has established the following student outcomes. These student outcomes describe the expected knowledge and skills of graduates at the time of graduation.

  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.
