The ECE Department at George Mason University offers two undergraduate degree programs
Both the Electrical Engineering undergraduate program and the Computer Engineering undergraduate program are accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, http://www.abet.org.
Program Educational Objectives are broad statements that describe what graduates are expected to attain within a few years of graduation. They are consistent with the mission of George Mason University and the Engineering Criteria of ABET.
Program Educational Objectives of each program are developed in consultation with program constituencies, which include students, alumni, employers, faculty and Department's Advisory Board and are periodically reviewed, revised and documented.
These objectives of both the Electrical Engineering program and the Computer Engineering program are the same.
These Program Educational Objectives are:
(The 2013 version, approved by ECE Advisory Board on March 9, 2013):
Graduates of the Computer Engineering and/or Electrical Engineering program are expected within three to five years of graduation to have:
- Established themselves as successful and productive engineering professionals or engaged in advanced study such as a graduate degree program.
- Worked effectively in team environments and individually.
- Fulfilled their responsibilities in the areas of ethics, continuing professional development and effective communications.
The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering is a recipient of the Curriculum Scholarship Development Grant (SDG) from OSCAR in support of Revising the Signals and Systems Curriculum to Emphasize Student Scholarship, which was awarded in 2013.
