The curriculum matrix for the degree program may be found here. The curriculum matrix is the alignment of courses (curriculum) with the desired goals and student learning outcomes of the program. It shows what is taught and how these outcomes are achieved through the completion of the degree program.

The program educational objectives of the Electrical Engineering Program are to graduate Electrical Engineering students who:

  1. Are successfully practicing in a field that makes use of their undergraduate preparation with solid theoretical and hands-on knowledge of Circuits, Electronics, Computer Software, Hardware, Control Systems, Communications, and Electrical Power.
  2. Contribute to society through their undergraduate preparation, by evaluating alternatives, and appreciating how processes can be interrelated.
  3. Pursue personal success by way of ethical, inclusive, and responsible behavior.
  4. Understand the challenges of a dynamically and globalized changing world and are willing to adapt their skills through continuous learning and self improvement.
  5. Master effective communication skills to obtain success either working individually or within a diverse team environment.
