Objectives & Outcomes

Undergraduate

BSEE Program Educational Objectives:

The objectives of BSEE program are to prepare graduates who will be successful in their chosen career paths. Specifically, within a few years of graduation, Electrical Engineering graduates are expected to:

  1. establish themselves as professional engineers in industrial and governmental positions, or be engaged in advanced studies;
  2. apply the knowledge, skills, and attitudes attained at CSULA to devise engineering solutions which meet the needs of their community locally and globally while making efficient use of available resources; and
  3. adhere to a high standard of ethics in their engineering profession.

BSEE Program Student Outcomes:

To ensure that our graduates meet the educational objectives, the following outcomes shall be achieved by the time of their graduation:

(a) an ability to apply knowledge of mathematics, science, and engineering
(b) an ability to design and conduct experiments, as well as to analyze and interpret data
(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
(d) an ability to function on multidisciplinary teams
(e) an ability to identify, formulate, and solve engineering problems
(f) an understanding of professional and ethical responsibility
(g) an ability to communicate effectively
(h) the broad education necessary to understand the impact of engineering solutions in a global, economic, environmental, and societal context
(i) a recognition of the need for, and an ability to engage in life-long learning
(j) a knowledge of contemporary issues
(k) an ability to use the techniques, skills, and modern engineering tools necessary for engineering practice.
