  • Demonstrate leadership in one or more significant roles since graduation, as evidenced for example by successful entrepreneurship in a start-up, significant promotions and awards in a company or engineering firm. 
  • Successfully build on the BSEE degree from UTA by: completing a graduate degree; or taking professional course(s); or earning professional certificate(s). 

Undergraduate Student Outcomes 

From these Program Educational Objectives, the department designed its baccalaureate program to offer its graduates the following student learning outcomes: 

  • an ability to identify, formulate, and solve complex engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science, and mathematics 
  • an ability to 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 
  • an ability to communicate effectively with a range of audiences 
  • an ability to 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 
  • an ability to function effectively on a team whose members together provide leadership, create a collaborative and inclusive environment, establish goals, plan tasks, and meet objectives 
  • an ability to develop and conduct appropriate experimentation, analyze and interpret data, and use engineering judgment to draw conclusions 
  • an ability to acquire and apply new knowledge as needed, using appropriate learning strategies 



Our Bachelor of Science degree program in Electrical Engineering (BSEE) has been continuously accredited since 1965 by the Engineering Accreditation Commission (EAC) of ABET.
