Undergraduate Electrical and Computer Engineering Accreditation

Electrical Engineering Accreditation 

ABET logoThe Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, http://www.abet.org.

Electrical Engineering Program Objectives

The Electrical 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 to the level sufficient to be productive in their respective industry 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.

Electrical Engineering Student Learning Outcomes

Graduates of the Electrical Engineering program are expected to achieve the following student learning outcomes.

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."

Recommended Program of Study

The ECE department offers courses in a timely manner to facilitate the completion of the degree program in four years.  Refer to the course roadmap leading to the BS degree in Electrical Engineering and the course prerequisite chart.
