Student Learning Outcomes

The E&EE department at CSUS is committed to developing and implementing a comprehensive outcomes assessment plan that is tied to the Department's mission and can be used to guide decision making, maintain accountability and foster understanding. With its priority focus on students the department provides an environment in which teaching, scholarship, research and professional activity are valued and supported. We aim to continuously improve programs and processes through introspective assessment and evaluation. This is important in evaluating our efforts in meeting program educational objectives. The following outcomes correspond to the curricular requirements and graduate attributes specified in ABET Criteria 2000 and program criteria in Electrical Engineering. All students of the E&EE program at CSUS are expected to have:

  1. A knowledge of mathematics through differential and integral calculus, differential equations, physics and chemistry (Program Criteria)
  2. A knowledge of basic engineering sciences including statics and dynamics (Program Criteria)
  3. The ability to apply knowledge of mathematics, science and engineering to solve problems in E&EE (Engineering Criterion 3(a))
  4. A knowledge of core E&EE topics in circuits, electronics, communications, control systems, microprocessors, electromagnetics, and electric machines (Program Criteria)
  5. Depth in at least one area of E&EE out of Analog/Digital Electronics, Control Systems, Communications and Power. (Program Criteria)
  6. Knowledge of probability, and statistics and applications to E&EE. (Program Criteria)
  7. The ability to use contemporary engineering techniques, and tools for analysis and design. (Engineering Criterion 3(k))
  8. The ability to work with modern instrumentation, software and hardware, design and perform experiments, and analyze and interpret the results. (Engineering Criterion 3(b), Program Criteria)
  9. The ability to integrate knowledge gained from the core curriculum to solve a complex design problem. This includes the identification, specification, design and implementation of products/components and/or systems that meet desired safety, economic and performance criteria. (Criterion 3(c, e ), Program Criteria)
  10. The ability to function on multi-disciplinary teams and exercise leadership to accomplish project goals. (Engineering Criterion 3(d))
  11. The ability to communicate effectively through written technical papers and/or project reports. (Engineering Criterion 3(g))
  12. The ability to make effective oral presentations and convey technical material to an audience.(Engineering Criterion 3(g)).
  13. An understanding of professional and ethical responsibility and a broad education to appreciate the impact of engineering solutions in the societal context. (Engineering Criterion 3(f, h, j))
  14. Recognition of the need for and an ability to engage in "life-long" learning. (Engineering Criterion 3(i))
  15. An appreciation for and knowledge of diverse cultures, and demonstrated proficiency in a foreign language.
