Undergraduate Accreditation

The University of Houston BSEE and BSCpE programs are accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, http://www.abet.org. In accordance with ABET requirements, we have developed, in consultation with our constituencies, educational objectives for our Electrical Engineering and Computer Engineering Programs.

 

Program Educational Objectives for BSEE Degree

Preamble: Graduates of the Electrical Engineering Program of the UH Cullen College of Engineering obtain employment in a wide variety of electrical engineering fields. Some further their education to pursue careers in research, law, medicine, business, or other areas. Regardless of the career path they choose, we believe that an education in electrical engineering will prepare them for a productive professional experience, and we strive to provide them with the technical, team-working, communication, and professional skills necessary for success.

We establish the following Program Educational Objectives for our Electrical Engineering Program.

  • Our graduates will meet or exceed the expectations of their employers in the electrical engineering workplace, or in other professional careers of their choosing.
  • Our graduates will be successful in advanced studies in electrical engineering or in other disciplines if they so choose.
  • Our graduates will engage in self-development activities that will allow them to adapt to evolving technical challenges and changing career opportunities.

Student Outcomes

In accordance with ABET requirements, we have developed, in consultation with our constituencies, the following student outcomes for our Electrical and Computer Engineering Programs.

The Electrical Engineering Program and the Computer Engineering Program at the University of Houston will demonstrate that students attain:

  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.
