Electrical Engineering Accreditation
The Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET.
ABET Accreditation Guidelines
The current ABET curricular requirements and guidelines for accredited engineering programs are:
- A minimum of 30 semester credit hours (or equivalent) of a combination of college-level mathematics and basic sciences with experimental experience appropriate to the program.
- A minimum of 45 semester credit hours (or equivalent) of engineering topics appropriate to the program, consisting of engineering and computer sciences and engineering design, and utilizing modern engineering tools.
- A broad education component that complements the technical content of the curriculum and is consistent with the program educational objectives.
- A culminating major engineering design experience that 1) incorporates appropriate engineering standards and multiple constraints, and 2) is based on the knowledge and skills acquired in earlier course work.
The Electrical and Computer Engineering Department was founded in 1984. The last ABET comprehensive review was conducted in Fall of 2013. The Electrical & Computer Engineering department offers the Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering (BSEE) with an approved track in Computer Engineering and also CyberSecurity. The program is primarily offered on campus although there are some online course offerings.

Program Educational Objectives
The ECE Department has identified five program educational objectives (PEOs) to guide the program curriculum and delivery:
- Remain effective in their employment in engineering and other professional career fields
- Facilitate innovation and synthesis of new products and services, as well as improve existing products, in a global context
- Continue to be leaders and /or major contributors in their profession, community and other organizations
- Continue the learning process throughout their careers
- Provide service to their profession and community-at-large.
The PEOs are documented in the 2018-2020 University Catalog. The program handbook is available on the School of Engineering website.
The Electrical Engineering Program has adopted new ABET Outcomes effective Fall 2018. The new student outcomes are documented in the 2018-2020 University Catalog. The program handbook is available on the School of Engineering website. Students in the Electrical Engineering program will attain the following outcomes by the time of graduation:
- An ability to identify, formulate, and solve complex engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science, and mathematics
- 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
- An ability to communicate effectively with a range of audiences
- 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
- 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
- An ability to develop and conduct appropriate experimentation, analyze and interpret data, and use engineering judgment to draw conclusions
- An ability to acquire and apply new knowledge as needed, using appropriate learning strategies, consideration of public health, safety and welfare, as well as global, cultural, social, environmental and economic factors
