Program Educational Objectives (PEOs) and Student Outcomes (SOs)

The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering offers the Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering (BSEE) and the Bachelor of Science in Computer Engineering (BSCpE), granted by the College of Engineering.  The BSCpE program is administered by ECE Department in consultation with the School of Computing.

BSCpE PEOs

The program educational objectives (PEOs) of the Computer Engineering Degree Program are to produce graduates who, during their first few years after graduation, will:

  • Achieve professional advancement with increasing responsibility, leadership, and mentorship

  • Function effectively on multidisciplinary teams, and individually, to develop and apply computer engineering solutions within a global, societal, and environmental context

  • Communicate effectively and manage resources skillfully as members and leaders of their profession

  • Advance professional competence through continuous learning such as advanced degrees, professional registration, leadership through ethical standards and professionalism.

BSCpE SOs
