The Advisory Board for the Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering degree at University of Washington Bothell has developed, adopted, and maintained a well-defined set of educational objectives and desired student outcomes.
The educational objective of the EE degree is to prepare students:
to become engineers who can assume leadership roles, technical or managerial, in electrical engineering and related fields
to become successful in pursing advanced studies in electrical engineering and related fields
to become contributing citizens who are conscientious of ethical and societal responsibilities
to become effective communicators in professional and non-professional environments and be able to function as a team member.
The Advisory Board for the BSEE degree has adopted a set of student outcomes. Each student in the BSEE program will demonstrate meeting the following outcomes by the time of graduation.
Outcome (a): An ability to apply knowledge of mathematics, science, and engineering
Outcome (b): An ability to design and conduct experiments, as well as to analyze and interpret data
Outcome (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
Outcome (d): An ability to function on multi-disciplinary teams
Outcome (e): An ability to identify, formulate, and solve engineering problems
Outcome (f): An understanding of professional and ethical responsibility
Outcome (g): An ability to communicate effectively
Outcome (h): The broad education necessary to understand the impact of engineering solutions in a global, economic, environmental, and societal context
Outcome (i): A recognition of the need for, and an ability to engage in life-long learning
Outcome (j): A knowledge of contemporary issues
Outcome (k): An ability to use the techniques, skills, and modern engineering tools necessary for engineering practice including remote interaction through internet
