Mission and ObjectivesThe mission of the Electrical Engineering Department in the College of Engineering at the University of South Florida is to provide a high quality education in electrical engineering for our students and practicing professionals; create new knowledge and solve real world problems via innovative research, and disseminate this information for the benefit of society; and to engage in effective regional, national and international service and outreach.
The bachelor of science degree program in electrical engineering is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET www.abet.org.
Undergraduate Program: Educational Objectives
The Electrical Engineering Department in the College of Engineering at the University of South Florida is committed to graduating electrical engineers who shall within a few years of graduation:
- Demonstrate a progression in technical competence and increasing responsibility in the practice of engineering.
- Engage in written and oral professional communication within and beyond the engineering community.
- Continue to develop professionally through life-long learning, advanced education, and other creative pursuits in science and technology.
The revised program educational objectives were approved by the entire faculty of the department. The PEOs were also reviewed and unanimously approved by the department's Industrial Advisory Board at the fall 2012 meeting. Finally, the objectives were a point of inquiry on alumni and employer surveys.
