The Electrical Engineering Program Objectives and Program Outcomes are shown below.

The mission of the department of Electrical and Computer Engineering is to fulfill the needs of the region and state by providing an undergraduate technical education in electrical engineering and computer engineering to a diverse group of students. Additionally, the department strives to continually update its program of study in order to qualify its graduates for positions in industry located in the region and beyond while providing sufficient breadth and depth in its program to assure its graduates a successful practice in the profession. At the same time, students are grounded in the rigorous scientific and theoretical foundations of the discipline, in order to enable graduates to enter and be successful in advanced level educational program of their choosing, but also to be able to build upon this strong foundation and extend it to new depth.

Computer Engineering Program Objectives

The Computer Engineering Program through the academic structure of California State University, Fresno awards degrees to students who within three to five years of graduation, through work experience and/or graduate education in the engineering field will be expected to

 

  1. have grown technically and be productive in their respective workplaces
  2. be capable of addressing technical problems of increasing complexity
  3. communicate and function effectively in an interdisciplinary team environment at a level commensurate with their career development
  4. demonstrate an ability for independent learning and continued professional as well as ethical development

Computer Engineering Program  Outcomes

Graduates of the Computer Engineering program are expected to have achieved the following Student Learning Outcomes (letters enclosed by parentheses at the end of individual Student Learning Outcomes indicate the corresponding (a) through (k) ABET Student Outcomes).

The Computer Engineering program seeks to produce graduates that

  1. have an ability to apply knowledge of mathematics and science in engineering (a)
  2. have an ability to apply knowledge of probability and statistics in engineering analysis (program unique outcome)
  3. demonstrate knowledge of core computer engineering, computer science and electrical engineering topics and some depth in at least one area of computer engineering (program unique outcome)
  4. have achieved a broad education and demonstrate knowledge of contemporary issues necessary to reason about the impact of computer engineering based solutions to situations arising in society (h,j)
  5. have an ability to use mathematical and computer based modern engineering tools for analysis and design (k)
  6. have an ability to identify and synthesize solutions for computer engineering problems by making use of their knowledge and experience with basic mathematics, science and engineering (a,e)
  7. have an ability to design, conduct and evaluate the results of experiments (b)
  8. have an ability to analyze, design and test systems that include both hardware and software (c)
  9. have an ability to document experimental processes and to write satisfactory technical reports/papers (g)
  10. have an ability to make technical oral presentations and interact with an audience (g)
  11. recognize the need for and have the motivation to further develop their knowledge and skills as engineers (i)
  12. have an ability to work effectively, both independently and in multidisciplinary teams (d)
  13. have an understanding of professional and ethical responsibility (f)
