"To educate Electrical Engineering students for professional practice or further study, to contribute to the body of knowledge in Electrical Engineering education, and to create a supportive environment that enables students and faculty to achieve their best."
Our Program Educational Objectives
The Department of Electrical Engineering (EE) offers an undergraduate B.S.E.E. degree and a graduate M.S. degree. Strengths of the program include significant student-faculty interaction, strong engagement with local industry, and a hands-on laboratory focus. Total enrollment in the department now exceeds 140 students.
The objectives of the department are five-fold:
Our graduates will take their place as competent practitioners of electrical engineering, displaying the modern skills and knowledge of theoretical and practical engineering, including social and communication skills.
Our graduates will be active in professional societies, and will be progressing towards professional registration.
Our graduates will pursue continuing education and/or graduate studies, and will be proactive in mentoring novice or prospective engineers.
Our graduates will take responsibility for their work’s effect on domestic and global; environmental, safety, social and economic factors.
Our graduates will function effectively independently or in multi-disciplinary environments.
The program outcomes of the undergraduate curriculum mirror the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET) criteria for accrediting engineering programs. Prior to graduation, each graduate of UTC’s electrical engineering program will demonstrate:
(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 multidisciplinary 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 a 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.
