Microelectronics Engineering BS - Educational Objectives & Learning Outcomes


The Microelectronic Program Educational Objectives (PEO) 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 Microelectronic faculty, in conjunction with its constituents, has established the following program educational objectives:

  • A sound knowledge of the fundamental scientific principles involved in the operation, design, and fabrication of integrated circuits.
  • A comprehensive understanding of relevant technologies such as integrated circuit process integration and manufacturing. This includes nanolithography and the application of engineering principles to the design and development of current and future semiconductor technologies.
  • A professional approach to problem solving, using analytical, academic, and communication skills effectively, with special emphasis on working in teams.
  • An enthusiasm for learning and the continuous improvement of skills throughout one’s career, exemplified by learning about emerging technologies and adapting to and accepting change within the field.
  • A desire to achieve leadership positions in industry or academia.
  • A breadth of knowledge, including the multidisciplinary nature of microelectronic engineering as well as the broad social, ethical, safety, and environmental issues within which engineering is practiced.


Student Outcomes are what students are expected to know and be able to do by the time of graduation. These relate to the skills, knowledge, and behaviors that students acquire in their matriculation through the program.
