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:

  1. An ability to identify, formulate, and solve complex engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science, and mathematics
  2. An ability to apply engineering design to produce solutions that meet specified needs with consideration of public health, safety, and welfare, as well as global, cultural, social, environmental, and economic factors
  3. An ability to communicate effectively with a range of audiences
  4. An ability to recognize ethical and professional responsibilities in engineering situations and make informed judgments, which must consider the impact of engineering solutions in global, economic, environmental, and societal contexts
  5. An ability to function effectively on a team whose members together provide leadership, create a collaborative and inclusive environment, establish goals, plan tasks, and meet objectives
  6. An ability to develop and conduct appropriate experimentation, analyze and interpret data, and use engineering judgment to draw conclusions
  7. An ability to acquire and apply new knowledge as needed, using appropriate learning strategies
