Electrical Engineering Program Objectives


The LTU Electrical Engineering Program is accredited by the Accreditation Board for Engineering
and Technology (ABET). An ABET accredited program must define and consistently work toward a full
set of "objectives" and "outcomes".

According to ABET, "program educational objectives are broad statements that describe the career and
professional accomplishments that the program is preparing graduates to achieve." The LTU Electrical
Engineering Program educational objectives, formulated by the faculty in consultation with the ECE
Industrial Advisory Board and other important program constituencies, are listed below.

 

Educational Objectives:

To graduate electrical engineering students who

1. possess the problem-solving and critical judgment skills required of competent citizens in an increasingly technological society;

2. are able to undertake entry-level engineering projects in local industry;

3. are capable of growing in competence and responsibility;

4. are prepared to undertake graduate study.

 According to ABET, "program outcomes are narrower statements that describe what students are expected to know
and be able to do by the time of graduation. These relate to the skills, knowledge, and behaviors that students
acquire in their matriculation through the program." The LTU Electrical Engineering Program educational outcomes
(revised Fall 2007) are as follows.

 

Educational Outcomes:

All electrical engineering graduates must have:

1. an ability to apply knowledge of mathematics, science, and engineering;

2. an ability to design and conduct experiments, as well as analyze and interpret data;

3. an initial ability to design an electrical system, component or process to meet predetermined design requirements;

4. an ability to function as a member of a multidisciplinary team;

5. an ability to identify, formulate, and solve electrical engineering problems,

6. an understanding of professional and ethical responsibilities of electrical engineers;

7. an ability to produce effective oral, graphical and written communication;

8. a broad education necessary to understand the impact of engineering solutions in a global and societal context;

9. a recognition of the need for, and the ability to engage in lifelong learning;

10. a knowledge of contemporary, technical issues;

11. an ability to use modern techniques, skills and tools of electrical engineering;

12. an ability to plan, design, simulate, fabricate, construct, and test circuit hardware;

13. an ability to plan, design, test, and debug systems consisting of both software and hardware;

14. an understanding of the entrepreneurial engineering process, which includes project management, business plan selection and construction, teamwork, leadership, and communication skills.
