Accreditation: Electrical & Computer Engineering

ECE EAC/ABET Accredited

The Electrical and Computer Engineering undergraduate program is nationally accredited by ABET, Inc:

  • Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE), accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, 111 Market Place, Suite 1050, Baltimore, MD 21202-4012, telephone: (410) 347-7700

The following programs, which are being phased out, continue to be accredited by ABET for students graduating by the end of spring term 2012. Information on these older programs is available upon request.

  • Electrical and Electronics Engineering, accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, 111 Place, Suite 1050, Baltimore, MD 21202-4012, telephone: (410) 347-7700
  • Computer Engineering, accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, 111 Market Place, Suite 1050, Baltimore, MD 21202-4012, telephone: (410) 347-7700

In accordance with accreditation criteria, we have defined a set of “broad statements that describe what graduates are expected to attain within a few years of graduation.” These are based on the needs of the program’s constituencies. They were developed and approved by the EECS faculty and our Industry Advisory Committee.

The Electrical and Computer Engineering undergraduate program has the following objectives:

  1. Graduates of the program will have successful careers.
  2. Graduates of the program will continue to learn and adapt to a changing world.

ECE Program Outcomes

Each outcome addresses one or more of the objectives. The outcomes describe the knowledge and capabilities expected of each ECE graduate.
