Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering (BSEE) Program Objectives
Upon the successful completion of the degree program in Electrical Engineering, our student have demonstrated:
- An ability to apply knowledge of mathematics, science, and engineering
- An ability to design and conduct experiments, as well as to analyze and interpret data
- 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
- An ability to function on multidisciplinary teams
- An ability to identify, formulate, and solve engineering problems
- An understanding of professional and ethical responsibility
- An ability to communicate effectively
- The broad education necessary to understand the impact of engineering solutions in a global, economic, environmental, and societal context
- A recognition of the need for, and an ability to engage in life-long learning
- A knowledge of contemporary issues
- An ability to use the techniques, skills, and modern engineering tools necessary for engineering practice.
Graduates from UB's BSEE program will achieve the following professional goals:
- Demonstrate expertise and career advancement in their field through the application of fundamental knowledge (mathematics and science) and skills (problem solving), and engineering tools
- Communicate effectively by contributing to conference presentations, industry publications, internal documents, patent applications, reports, and/or scholarly journal papers.
- Contribute to the achievement of their organization’s goals as an effective leader and/or effective team member
- Be engaged in their profession and life-long learning by using their knowledge and expertise to aid civic institutions, educational organizations, and professional societies.
These objectives are assessed and altered using the following process:
On a three-year cycle, a sample of current students, faculty, alumni, and advisory board members are surveyed and asked to rank, rate, and make alterations to the list of current program objectives. Survey data and comments are reviewed by the faculty and incorporated into a new set of objectives.
These were last examined and approved in the EE faculty retreat on August 24, 2007.
