Educational Objectives and Outcomes

Electrical Engineering Program

EE Educational Objectives:

The objective of the electrical engineering degree program is to prepare students for success as practicing engineers engaged in lifelong learning and serving in leadership roles in their chosen career path. The following “Program Educational Objectives” are focused on the achievements of our graduates in the initial part of their careers. Specifically, within five years of graduation, the electrical engineering degree program will prepare graduates to:

  • Establish themselves as practicing professionals meeting or exceeding the expectations of their employers
  • Continue their professional development or pursue formal education to earn advanced degrees and/certifications
  • Demonstrate leadership in their professional endeavors and/or in their communities

EE Student Outcomes:

  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.

The University of Kentucky Electrical Engineering undergraduate program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET. For more information on ABET visit www.abet.org.
