BSECE Program Educational Objectives

The objectives of the B.S. in Electrical and Computer Engineering program, delivered in an educational environment shaped by Christian ideals, are that:

  • Graduates will be successful in their chosen profession as evidenced by:
    • - career satisfaction
      - promotions, raises and increased professional responsibilities
      - professional visibility (e.g., publications, presentations, patents, inventions, awards, etc.)
      - entrepreneurial activities


  • Graduates will be successful in post-undergraduate studies as evidenced by:
    • - satisfaction with the decision to further their education
      - advanced degrees earned
      - professional visibility (e.g., publications, presentations, patents, inventions, awards, etc.)

    BSECE Expected Student Outcomes
    In support of the program objectives, graduates of the program will be able to demonstrate

    • an ability to apply knowledge of mathematics, science, and engineering
    • an ability to design and conduct experiments, as well as to analyze and interpret data
    • an ability to design a system, component, or process to meet desired needs
    • an ability to function on multi-disciplinary teams
    • an ability to identify, formulate, and solve engineering problems
    • an understanding of professional and ethical responsibility
    • an ability to communicate effectively
    • the broad education necessary to understand the impact of engineering solutions in a global and societal context
    • a recognition of the need for, and an ability to engage in life-long learning
    • a knowledge of contemporary issues
    • an ability to use the techniques, skills, and modern engineering tools necessary for engineering practice.

    Our ABET-accredited Bachelor of Science in Electrical and Computer Engineering (B.S. in E.C.E.) program builds on a strong general education and the technical foundations of mathematics, physics, chemistry and computer science. Students have one or more engineering courses each semester, which fosters the development of a close student-faculty relationship beginning the first semester with an Introduction to Engineering.

    The engineering core is a broad and strong foundation, with seven engineering courses that are taken by all engineering majors. The ECE curriculum offers a balanced combination of:

    1) electrical engineering subjects (Circuits, Signals and Systems, Electromagnetics, Electronics, Control),

    2) computer engineering subjects (Digital Logic, Microprocessor Systems, Computer Organization, Computer Systems Design),

    3) integrating technical subjects (Power Systems, Sustainable Energy, Materials, Digital Signal Processing),

    4) professional subjects (Technical Writing, Engineering Economics, Ethics), and

    5) several ECE technical elective courses.

    A special feature of the program is the multidisciplinary team design projects featured especially in Engineering Design I (fifth semester) and Engineering Design II (final semester), two courses required of all Baylor engineering majors.

    Many undergraduate ECE students also have the opportunity to work with our faculty and other students on laboratory and research projects.
