This outcome can be subdivided to:

E1. Identify problem variables and information

E2. Formulate a problem solution

E3. Solve formulated problem

F. An understanding of professional and ethical responsibility

Electrical and Control engineering students will be expected to conduct themselves in an ethical manner at all times. No instance of academic misconduct will be tolerated. Students will be exposed to industrial code of ethics and practice professional conduct during their practical training experience.

This outcome can be subdivided to:

F1. Demonstrate knowledge of a professional code of ethics

F2. Identify the ethical dimensions of professional engineering and scientific practice

G. An ability to communicate effectively

Electrical and Control engineering students will be able to write and speak English as manifested by passing the College of Engineering and technology English courses (Composition, Technical Writing, and Oral Presentation). Electrical and Control engineering students will also be able to design and write technical reports and make oral presentations using the appropriate tools. Several courses offered in the EE program are involved with this outcome in addition to the senior projects EE501 & EE503 and term projects offered in several courses.

This outcome can be subdivided to:

G1. Communicate ideas, information, and concepts effectively in writing

G2. Communicate ideas, information and concepts effectively orally
