In order to meet the program objectives, a graduate of the
program will have accomplishments consistent with the general
criteria specified by the Engineering Accreditation Commission
of the Accreditation Board of Engineering and Technology (ABET).
Electrical and computer engineering students receive a thorough
foundation in mathematics, physics, and introductory engineering
during the first two years. Emphasis during the junior and
senior years is on advanced engineering concepts and design.
Engineering design is introduced in the first part of the
junior year so that by the time students reach senior status
they are prepared to take required courses dealing primarily
with design. The senior courses utilize the previously gained
knowledge in solving real-life problems. This prepares students
for excellent career opportunities in areas such as computer
engineering, energy conversion, power systems, communications,
network design, control systems, electronics, and signal
processing, as well as many interdisciplinary areas.
With the background in fundamental theory and laboratory practice
provided in the curricula, graduates are prepared to contribute
and progress in their chosen technological fields. Both the
Electrical and Computer Engineering programs are accredited.
