Electrical Engineering

Objectives and Outcomes

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.

Educational Objectives

After three to five years of completing their degrees, our graduates,

  1. Will have growing professional careers in electrical engineering or related fields in public or private sector

  2. Will remain engaged in continuing education, including advanced degrees, in electrical engineering and related fields

  3. Will become contributing citizens who are conscientious of ethical and societal responsibilities

  4. Will become effective communicators in professional and non-professional environments and be able to function as a team member

Student Outcomes

Based on the recommendation of ABET, the EE program has adopted the following new student outcomes. Each student in the BSEE program will demonstrate meeting the following outcomes by the time of graduation.

Outcome 1: an ability to identify, formulate, and solve complex engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science, and mathematics.

Outcome 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.

Outcome 3: an ability to communicate effectively with a range of audiences.

Outcome 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.

Outcome 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.

Outcome 6: an ability to develop and conduct appropriate experimentation, analyze and interpret data, and use engineering judgment to draw conclusions.

Outcome 7: an ability to acquire and apply new knowledge as needed, using appropriate learning strategies.
