Program Educational Objectives and Student Outcomes



To achieve our goals, the faculty and students of the Electrical Engineering Department, with input from other constituents, have established the following Program Educational Objectives (PEOs):

  1. Technical Growth: Electrical Engineering graduates will be successful in modern engineering practice, integrate into the diverse, local and global workforce, and contribute to the economy of California and the nation.
  2. Professional Skills: Electrical Engineering graduates will continue to demonstrate the professional skills necessary to be competent workforce contributors, assume research, development, and leadership roles, and have career success and satisfaction.
  3. Professional Attitude and Citizenship: Electrical Engineering graduates will become productive citizens with high ethical and professional standards, who make sound engineering or managerial decisions, and have enthusiasm for the profession and professional growth.



Upon completion of the degree program, graduates of the Electrical Engineering program must demonstrate:

  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.
