Goals and Objectives

Program educational objectives are broad statements that describe what graduates are expected to attain within a few years of graduation. They are consistent with Mason's mission and the Engineering Criteria of ABET.

Within three to five years of students earning their degrees, graduates of the Computer Engineering and/or Electrical Engineering program are expected to have:

  • Demonstrated critical thinking, to have applied engineering design principles to produce solutions that satisfy specifications, and to have established themselves as successful and productive engineering professionals or to have engaged in advanced study such as a graduate degree program.
  • Worked collaboratively and effectively in team environments, and to have worked effectively in multi-disciplinary environments.
  • Fulfilled their professional responsibilities in the areas of ethics, to have continued their professional development, and to have demonstrated effective oral and written communications.


ABET Student Outcomes prepare graduates to attain program educational objectives. They should have the ability to:

  1. Identify, formulate, and solve complex engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science, and mathematics
  2. Apply engineering design to produce solutions that meet specified needs with consideration of public health, safety, and welfare, as well as global, cultural, social, environmental, and economic factors
  3. Communicate effectively with a range of audiences
  4. Recognize ethical and professional responsibilities in engineering situations and make informed judgments, which must consider the impact of engineering solutions in global, economic, environmental, and societal contexts
  5. Function effectively on a team whose members together provide leadership, create a collaborative and inclusive environment, establish goals, plan tasks, and meet objectives
  6. Develop and conduct appropriate experimentation, analyze and interpret data, and use engineering judgment to draw conclusions
  7. Acquire and apply new knowledge as needed, using appropriate learning strategies
