Electrical Engineering BS - Educational Objectives & Learning Outcomes

RIT Dubai Electrical Engineering Mission Statement 

“The mission of the Electrical Engineering  program is to produce graduates with the appropriate skill set and experiential education who will have an immediate impact in the workforce, pursue graduate studies, and embrace life-long learning. The program also prepares graduates to adapt to the technological changes, create significant individual and industrial growth opportunities, and practice the profession with a social conscience.”

Educational Objectives 

The Electrical Engineering Program Educational Objectives (PEO’s) are broad statements that describe what graduates are expected to attain within a few years of graduation. Program educational objectives are based on the needs of the program’s constituencies. The Electrical Engineering faculty, in conjunction with its constituents, has established the following program educational objectives:
Graduates of the Bachelor of Science degree in Electrical Engineering are expected, within a few years of graduation, to have attained:
PEO-1 Application of engineering knowledge in the development of systems-based solutions.
PEO-2 Enhancement of their skills through training, independent inquiry and professional development.
PEO-3 Leadership, accountability, initiative and ethical and social responsibility while working independently as well as collaboratively.
PEO-4 Pursuance of Master’s and PhD level programs for graduates with relevant qualifications.

Student Learning Outcomes
