Knowledge and Skills Emphasized 

Students who graduate with a Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering:

  • Apply knowledge of mathematics, physics, and electrical engineering to solve problemUse the techniques, skills, and modern electrical engineering tools necessary for electrical engineering practice
  • Design and conduct experiments, as well as analyze and interpret dataDesign an electrical system, component, or process to meet desired needs within realistic constraints such as economic, environmental, social, political, ethical, health and safety, manufacturability, and sustainabilityIdentify, formulate, and solve electrical engineering problems
  • Apply knowledge of advanced mathematics and physics necessary for electrical engineering • Demonstrate an understanding of professional and ethical responsibility
  • Understand the impact of electrical engineering solutions in a global, economic, environmental, and societal context
  • Recognize the need for, and an ability to, engage in life-long learning
  • Relate their degree to a knowledge of contemporary issues

Program Educational Objectives of a B.S. in Electrical Engineering:

A few years after graduation, our alumni:

  1. Create innovative solutions to electrical engineering problems in the organizations where they work.
  2. Advance in their careers and grow in their expertise to stay current so they can solve the problems of the future.
  3. Continue their education through graduate programs or other training programs.

CSUSM adopted ABET Student Outcomes for Electrical Engineering:

  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.
