Program Educational Objectives

The Objectives of the ECE undergraduate programs in Electrical and Computer Engineering are to educate graduates to become productive, accountable, and responsible professionals in engineering who will:

  1. Apply their engineering skills, through theory and application, in industry, government, society, or in graduate school;
  2. Practice high technical and ethical standards and communicate their work to colleagues, industry, and professional organizations;
  3. Work effectively and contribute in interdisciplinary fields while encouraging expression and valuing diversity;
  4. Understand the importance of lifelong learning and continuous professional growth in a changing world as shown through self-directed learning, specialized trainings, certifications, licensing, and graduate programs.

Student Outcomes

Student outcomes describe what students are expected to know and be able to do by the time of
graduation. Graduates of the WSU Electrical and Computer Engineering Programs will have:

  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.

The WSU Electrical Engineering and Computer Engineering programs are accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission (EAC) of ABET.
