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.

Electronics Engineering Technology

The engineering technology BS programs at Weber State University are accredited by the Engineering Technology Accreditation Commission of ABET.

Mission

The mission of the Electronics Engineering Technology program is to provide applications-oriented education which prepares graduates to make significant contributions in electronics related career fields.  At the time of graduation, students will have acquired the skills and knowledge necessary to solve engineering, technology, science and manufacturing challenges in a variety of technical fields.  The Bachelor of Science degree program in EET prepares students to incorporate computer and electronic systems in the design, application, installation, and implementation of electrical and electronic systems.  The Associate of Applied Science degree program in EET prepares graduates for building, testing, operating, and maintaining electrical and electronic systems.
 

Program Education Goals

  1. Graduates will receive an applications-oriented education and upon completion will be prepared to make significant contributions in technology-based career fields.
  2. BS graduates will demonstrate relevant technical capabilities in the design, application, installation, and implementation of electrical and electronic systems. AAS graduates will demonstrate requisite technical skills for building, testing, operating, and maintaining electrical and electronic systems.
  3. Graduates will demonstrate their knowledge using oral, written, and graphical communications and have a desire for lifelong learning, keeping current within the discipline and be responsible citizens able to contribute as active members of society.
  4. Graduates will have the abilities and skills to work in a variety of different industries and businesses including manufacturing, mechanical, electrical, architectural, and government.
  5. Graduates will demonstrate a commitment to quality, ethics, service and continuous improvement in personal and professional situations.

Program Student Outcomes

At the end of their study at WSU, students in this program will have attained:

  1. The ability to select and apply the knowledge, techniques, skills, and modern tools of the discipline in the design application, installation, and implementation of electrical and electronic systems.
  2. The ability to select and apply a knowledge of mathematics, science, engineering, and technology to industrial automation, digital systems and microcontrollers, communications and signal processing to develop practical solutions for engineering technology problems.
  3. The ability to conduct, analyze and interpret experiments and apply experimental results to improve processes.
  4. The ability to design systems, components, or processes as related to electrical and electronic systems.
  5. The ability to function effectively as a member or leader on a technical team.
  6. The ability to identify, analyze, and solve broadly-defined problems through analysis and experimentation leading to modification of systems, components and processes.
  7. The ability to communicate effectively in written, oral, and graphical forms in both technical and non-technical environments and to identify and use appropriate technical literature.
  8. The ability to develop an understanding of the need for and to engage in self-directed continuing professional development; recognize the need for and possess the ability to pursue lifelong learning.
  9. The ability to develop an understanding of and a commitment to address professional and ethical responsibilities including a respect for diversity.
  10. The ability to develop a knowledge of the impact of engineering technology solutions in a societal and global context.
  11. The ability to have a commitment to quality, timeliness and continuous improvement.
