Electrical Engineering Program Objectives and Student Outcomes

The Program Educational Objectives (PEOs) are as follows:

The objectives of the BSEE program at the University of New Haven are to prepare graduates for professional practice and life-long learning. We expect our graduates to attain the long term goals few years after graduation.

Succeed in the professional practice of engineering or related field evidenced by:

  • Employment in the field of study
  • Advancement in the chosen career
  • Contribution to and leadership of engineering teams

Pursue life-long learning evidenced by:

  • Attending graduate school
  • Continuous professional development
  • Membership in a professional organization

The Student Outcomes (SOs) are as follows:

  • An ability to apply knowledge of mathematics, science and engineering
  • An ability to design and conduct experiments, as well as to analyze and interpret data
  • 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
  • An ability to function on multidisciplinary teams
  • An ability to identify, formulate, and solve engineering problems
  • An understanding of professional and ethical responsibility
  • An ability to communicate effectively
