Educational Objectives and Student Outcomes

ECE Educational Objectives

The educational objectives of the electrical and computer engineering programs at Kansas State University are based on the Mission Statements of the University, College, and Department. They represent what graduates of the electrical and computer engineering programs are expected to accomplish during the first few years following graduation. Input from the ECE Advisory Council and industry representatives was considered in setting these objectives. The educational objectives of the undergraduate programs are:

  1. Graduates will become successful practitioners in engineering and other diverse careers.
  2. Most graduates will pursue continuing education opportunities relevant to their careers.
  3. Some graduates will pursue advanced degree programs in engineering and other disciplines.
  4. Some graduates will pursue professional registration.

 

ECE Student Outcomes

The ECE education objectives form the basis for the student outcomes. These student outcomes represent what graduates of the electrical engineering and computer engineering programs should know or be able to do by the time they graduate. Input from the ECE Advisory Council, industry representatives, faculty, and accreditation agencies was considered in setting these outcomes.
 
Graduates of the electrical engineering program will have:

a. An ability to apply knowledge of science, mathematics, 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 multi-disciplinary 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 life-long learning;

j. A knowledge of contemporary issues;

k. An ability to use the techniques, skills, and modern engineering tools necessary for engineering practice;
