Engineering Accreditation Commission

Mission Statement

This mission of the Electrical Engineering program is threefold:

  • To create new knowledge and challenge young minds by participation in the process of discovery and invention;
  • To educate electrical engineers with a solid background of fundamentals, stretching their imagination, and preparing them for an exciting future; and
  • To serve the society through research, education, and outreach activities.

Program Educational Objectives

The educational objectives of the electrical engineering program are to produce graduates whose expected accomplishments within a few years of graduation are:

  1. Graduates who choose to pursue a career in industry or government will become productive and valuable electrical engineers.
  2. Graduates who choose to pursue advanced degrees will be able to gain admission to graduate programs and succeed in top graduate programs.
  3. Graduates will lead and work effectively on diverse teams to promote a breadth of perspectives in developing, communicating, and executing solutions across a broad range of electrical engineering application areas.
  4. In keeping with the legacy of an Aggie Engineer, graduates will be successful in attaining positions of leadership in their professional careers.

Student Outcomes

The student outcomes that prepare graduates to attain the program educational objectives are:

  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.
