ABET

ABET Accreditation

The Electrical and Computer Engineering Undergraduate Programs at the University of Delaware are accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET. Since 1932, ABET has provided quality assurance of education through accreditation. ABET accredits more than 2500 engineering, engineering technology, computing, and applied science programs at over 550 colleges and universities nationally. ABET is recognized by the Council on Higher Education Accreditation. The organization accredits programs, not institutions.

 

Mission

The mission of the ECE Department in undergraduate education is to graduate electrical and computer engineers who have been well educated in the basics and also given the opportunity to experience realistic laboratory research and design problems. With this broad background they can be expected to enjoy successful careers in industry, government or academia. Our graduates will be well prepared to pursue graduate studies, should they choose.

 

Electrical Engineering

The electrical engineering degree has three Program Educational Objectives:

 

  1. Graduates who choose to follow a career path in industry or government will be successful in obtaining employment and will become productive and valued engineers within their companies.
  2. Graduates who choose to obtain an advanced degree in engineering will be successful in gaining admission to a graduate program and obtaining their desired degree.
  3. Graduates will have the professional skills required to advance into leadership positions within their chosen careers.
The successful graduate of the ELEG Program must demonstrate:

 

  • an ability to apply knowledge of mathematics, science, and engineering
  • an ability to design and conduct experiments, as well as to analyze and interpret data
  • an ability to design a system, component, or process to meet desired needs within realistic constraints such as economic, environmental, social, political, ethical, health and safety, manufacturability, and sustainability
  • an ability to function on multidisciplinary teams
  • an ability to identify, formulate, and solve engineering problems;
  • an understanding of professional and ethical responsibility
  • an ability to communicate effectively the broad education necessary to understand the impact of engineering solutions in a global and societal context
  • a recognition of the need for, and an ability to engage in, lifelong learning
  • a knowledge of contemporary issues
  • an ability to use the techniques, skills, and modern engineering tools necessary for engineering practice
