Accreditation

The Bachelor of Science (B.S.) degree programs in electrical engineering and computer engineering at the University of Idaho are accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, http://www.abet.org.


Computer Engineering Program Educational Objectives

  1. Learn and Integrate. Graduates of the program will demonstrate proficiency in identifying, formulating and solving engineering problems by applying their knowledge and understanding of mathematics, science and engineering.
  2. Think and Create. Graduates of the program will demonstrate proficiency in analysis and design of hardware and software based systems using modern methods and tools to meet specified requirements while considering real-world constraints.
  3. Communicate. Graduates of the program will demonstrate an ability to communicate effectively through oral and written media to interdisciplinary groups, including team members, constituents and the public.
  4. Clarify Purpose and Perspective. They will engage in lifelong learning activities to further develop their technical and professional capabilities and skills.
  5. Practice citizenship. Graduates of the program demonstrate knowledge of professional and ethical responsibility. They will consider the societal impact of their work and/or add value to the profession and to society through active engagement in professional societies, community services and outreach to future generations of engineers.

Each Program Educational Objective supports the corresponding University Learning Outcome. The letters within parentheses indicate which Student Outcomes support each Program Educational Objective.

Computer Engineering Student Outcomes

Upon graduation, students will have:

  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

Electrical Engineering Program Educational Objectives

  1. Learn and Integrate. Graduates of the program will demonstrate proficiency in identifying, formulating, and solving engineering problems by applying their knowledge and understanding of mathematics, science, and engineering.
  2. Think and Create. Graduates of the program will demonstrate proficiency in designing analog and digital circuits and systems, power systems, control systems, or computing systems. They will demonstrate the capabilities of analyzing, designing, implementing, and verifying circuits, devices, and systems to meet specified requirements while considering real-world constraints.
  3. Communicate. Graduates of the program will demonstrate an ability to communicate effectively through oral and written media to interdisciplinary groups, including team members, constituents and the public.
