Educational Objectives & Student Outcomes: Electrical & Computer Engineering, B.S.

Program Educational Objectives (PEOs)

In alignment with the New York Institute of Technology mission and the mission of the College of Engineering and Computing Sciences, our program faculty, with input from stakeholders such as employers, alumni, and industrial advisory board members, have determined Program Educational Objectives to prepare versatile engineers who:

  • Are successfully employed in electrical and computer engineering technology or their chosen career path;
  • Pursue graduate studies and/or continued education in their field; and
  • Function as responsible members of society through engagement in community or professional organizations.

Student Outcomes (SOs)

To support these objectives, the curriculum has been developed to provide student outcomes describing what degree candidates are expected to know and be able to do by the time they graduate. Upon graduation, students are expected to acquire the ability to:

  • An ability to identify, formulate, and solve complex engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science, and mathematics.
  • 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.
  • An ability to communicate effectively with a range of audiences.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • An ability to develop and conduct appropriate experimentation, analyze and interpret data, and use engineering judgment to draw conclusions.
  • An ability to acquire and apply new knowledge as needed, using appropriate learning strategies.
