Electrical and Computer Engineering

Program Objectives & Student Outcomes

The Undergraduate Programs are guided by a set of objectives and outcomes which have been developed in consultation with students, faculty, alumni, the advisory board, and other affected parties..

Program Objectives

Program Educational Objectives describe the overall career and professional accomplishments that the program is preparing graduates to achieve.

The Program Educational Objectives of TTU BSEE and BSCmpE programs are:

  1. Within one year following graduation, our graduates will be:
    1. working in the field of electrical and computer engineering and/or
    2. pursuing graduate studies
  2. Within five years following graduation, our graduates will have:
    1. progressed in their careers as indicated by promotions, positions of leadership, awards, recognitions, entrepreneurial activities, products or processes developed, patents, and/or publications;
    2. advanced their knowledge and expertise as indicated by continuing education, advanced degrees, and/or professional registration;
    3. contributed to the profession and society as indicated by research, national and international collaboration, professional service, community service and/or public service.

Student Outcomes

Student Outcomes describe what students are expected to know and be able to do by the time of graduation.

TTU BSEE and BSCmpE graduates will be able to demonstrate that they have:

  1. an ability to apply knowledge of mathematics, science, and engineering.
  2. an ability to design and conduct experiments, as well as to analyze and interpret data.
  3. 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.
  4. an ability to function on multi-disciplinary teams.
  5. an ability to identify, formulate, and solve engineering problems.
  6. an understanding of professional and ethical responsibility.
  7. an ability to communicate effectively in both written and oral forms.
  8. the broad education necessary to understand the impact of engineering solutions in a global, economic, environmental, and societal context.
