Program Objectives and Outcomes
College of Engineering and Applied Science Mission Statement: As the only College of Engineering and Applied Science in Wyoming, the state is strongly dependent on the college for leadership and expertise in technical areas. To serve the state in this regard, the college strives for excellence in teaching, research and in the area of technology transfer. The faculty emphasizes lifelong learning and provides its graduates with the problem solving tools needed to address situations relevant to all aspects of society and its relationship to technology and science. Excellence in instruction requires faculty that are actively involved in research, and/or involved in consultation with practitioners. These extramural activities, when balanced with commensurate teaching responsibilities, translate into inspiration for students and resources for graduate education and faculty development.
The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering contributes to this mission by providing the electrical and computer engineering expertise for education, research, and support in the electrical and computer engineering disciplines.
Provided are the department's program objectives and measurable outcomes for electrical and computer engineering.
