Educational Objectives of the Electrical Engineering Program

The objectives were developed by the faculty in consultation with the Electrical Engineering Industry Advisory Board and were approved by electrical engineering students.

The objective of the Electrical Engineering program of the University of New Orleans is to produce graduates who are successful practitioners of electrical and computer engineering and appreciate the value of furthering their education.

Driven by the University’s urban mission and the needs of (and our ties with) industry of the Gulf Coast region, the Electrical Engineering program meets the demands of the following industries:

  • Energy and petrochemical
  • Data and telecommunication
  • Computer Engineering
  • Information and systems technologies
  • Consulting
  • Industrial power and controls
  • Electronics design and manufacturing
  • Shipbuilding

The Electrical Engineering program also meets the demands of national industries and serves as a foundation for graduate education.

A minimum grade of C or better is required in MATH 2124 , ENEE 2550 , ENEE 2551 , and ENEE 3530 .

Student Learning Outcomes

The student learning outcomes for electrical engineering describe what students are expected to know and be able to do by the time of graduation. These relate to the knowledge, skills, and behaviors that students acquire as they progress through the program. 

Student Learning Outcomes (SLOs) for BSEE in Electrical Engineering

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.
 

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.
