Educational Objectives and Outcomes

Electrical Engineering Program

EE Educational Objectives:

The objective of the electrical engineering degree program is to prepare students for success as practicing engineers engaged in lifelong learning and serving in leadership roles in their chosen career path. The following “Program Educational Objectives” are focused on achievements of our graduates in the initial part of their careers. Specifically, within five years of graduation, the electrical engineering degree program will prepare graduates to:

  • Establish themselves as practicing professionals meeting or exceeding the expectations of their employers
  • Continue their professional development or pursue formal education to earn advanced degrees and/certifications
  • Demonstrate leadership in their professional endeavors and/or in their communities

EE Student Outcomes:

a) an ability to apply knowledge of mathematics, science and engineering

b) an ability to design and conduct experiments, as well as to analyze and interpret data

c) 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

d) an ability to function on multidisciplinary teams

e) an ability to identify, formulate and solve engineering problems

f) an understanding of professional and ethical responsibility

g) an ability to communicate effectively

h) the broad education necessary to understand the impact of engineering solutions in a global, economic, environmental and societal context

i) a recognition of the need for, and an ability to engage in, lifelong learning

j) a knowledge of contemporary issues

k) an ability to use the techniques, skills and modern engineering tools necessary for engineering practice

The University of Kentucky Electrical Engineering undergraduate program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET. For more information on ABET visit www.abet.org.
