Electrical Engineering Program Educational Objectives
U.S. Coast Guard Academy Electrical Engineering Program produce graduates who, within several years of graduation:
- demonstrate proficiency in the professional practice of engineering as USCG junior officers.
- demonstrate intellectual or professional growth as evidenced by post-graduate education, licensing, certification, promotion, and participation in pertinent professional societies.
- contribute electrical engineering expertise and ethical leadership to U.S. Coast Guard engineering challenges within the framework of current practices for engineering life cycle management.
Graduates will have:
- 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.
In addition to the common departmental program mission and common Student Outcomes, the Electrical Engineering program has a curriculum that includes:
- probability and statistics, including applications appropriate to electrical engineering.
- mathematics through differential and integral calculus, sciences, and engineering topics necessary to analyze and design complex electrical and electronic devices, software, and systems containing hardware and software components.
- advanced mathematics including differential equations, linear algebra, complex variables, and discrete mathematics.
