Accreditation

The Electrical Engineering program of study and Computer Engineering program of study are accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, http://www.abet.org.  The undergraduate degree is the Bachelor of Science in Electrical and Computer Engineering (BSECE) and the undergraduate major is Electrical and Computer Engineering.  The Computer Engineering program of study and Electrical Engineering program of study are the only Ohio State programs under this degree. The undergraduate enrollment currently is approximately 917 students. The size of each graduating undergraduate class is approximately 170 students.

Program Educational Objectives and Student Outcomes

To ensure the highest academic quality and to conform to ABET requirements, both the Computer Engineering program of study and the Electrical Engineering program of study are organized around Program Educational Objectives, which describe what our alumni should achieve as they grow professionally though their career,  and Student Outcomes. 

The Program Educational Objectives for both programs of study may be found at majors.osu.edu.

In support of the program educational objectives, each student in either the Computer Engineering program of study or the Electrical Engineering program of study is expected to meet each of the following Student Outcomes upon graduation:

a. An ability to apply knowledge of mathematics, science, and engineering.
b. An ability to design and conduct experiments, as well as to analyze and interpret data.
c. 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.
d. An ability to function on multi-disciplinary teams.
e. An ability to identify, formulate, and solve engineering problems.
f. An understanding of professional and ethical responsibility.
g. An ability to communicate effectively.
h. The broad education necessary to understand the impact of engineering solutions in a global, economic, environmental, and societal context.
i. A recognition of the need for, and an ability to engage in life-long learning.
j. A knowledge of contemporary issues.
k. An ability to use the techniques, skills, and modern engineering tools necessary for engineering practice.
