EECS Department Mission

The Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science provides a professionally focused education in the fields of computer science and electrical engineering. Our students are prepared to practice in their chosen field focusing on the industrial and business needs of the region. The needs of traditional and non-traditional students are met through close interaction with faculty, businesses, and the industrial community in a practice-oriented student friendly environment. The department maintains ABET accredited current curriculums that foster interdisciplinary teamwork, scholarly development, projects, internships, professional ethics, and training with regional businesses or industries. Our students are prepared to study for advanced degrees and work in regional businesses or industries.

Engineering Program Mission

The Engineering Program provides education in chemical, civil, electrical, and mechanical engineering that is professionally focused and practice-oriented within a student friendly environment. We prepare our students to practice engineering, focusing on the industrial needs of the region. We meet the needs of traditional and non-traditional students through close contact with the faculty, the staff, and industrial engineers and managers in our region. We maintain an up-to-date curriculum that fosters inter-disciplinary teamwork, scholarly development, cooperation with regional industry, and engineering ethics.

Engineering Program Educational Objectives (PEOs)

The Engineering Program Educational Objectives are:
  • To prepare graduates to practice engineering and to be successful in solving the engineering problems encountered in industry, government, or private practice.
  • To provide graduates with the motivation and skills to advance into positions of increased responsibility and to pursue continuing education or graduate studies
  • To produce graduates who are not only ethical and professional as engineers but also are responsible members of their communities and the larger society.
