Program Educational Objectives
The Citadel Electrical Engineering program prepares graduates to:
- Succeed in the practice of electrical engineering, by ethically and judiciously applying engineering methods to solve problems facing a technologically complex society.
- Develop and apply current hardware and software tools, equipment, and development environments to conduct and/or lead engineering design and assessment.
- Value and pursue lifelong learning through postgraduate education, professional registration, or employment, to keep current in engineering fields, and to sustain awareness of engineering-related issues.
- Be principled leaders with strong communications and team-building skills.
The Citadel’s Electrical Engineering program includes assessment to demonstrate that students obtain an ability to:
- identify, formulate, and solve complex engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science, and mathematics.
- 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.
- communicate effectively with a range of audiences
- 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.
- function effectively on a team whose members together provide leadership, create a collaborative and inclusive environment, establish goals, plan tasks, and meet objectives.
- develop and conduct appropriate experimentation, analyze and interpret data, and use engineering judgment to draw conclusions.
- acquire and apply new knowledge as needed, using appropriate learning strategies
