Electrical engineers harness electrical energy for the benefit of humankind. The profession is broad and encompasses products valued by society in many technical areas from communications to electric power and energy use to those for our current "Information Age."
Employment opportunities range over product design, development, manufacturing, sales, management, teaching, and research. Employers include industrial companies, consulting firms, and government agencies and non-governmental organizations. The UNF Office of Career Services provides information on companies seeking electrical engineering graduates for permanent positions or current students for employment in cooperative education positions.
Program Educational Objectives
UNF Engineering graduates will demonstrate:
- sound engineering fundamentals.
- strong team and leadership skills.
- strong problem solving skills.
- an ability to learn and advance.
- effective communication skills.
At the time of graduation, Electrical Engineering students will have achieved the following Student 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.
- an ability to apply probability and statistics in the analysis and design of electrical/electronic systems, components, or processes
- an ability to analyze and design complex electrical and electronic devices, software and systems containing hardware and software components
- an ability to apply differential and integral calculus, calculus-based sciences, and advanced mathematics, such as differential equations, linear algebra, complex variables, and discrete mathematics, in the analysis and design of electrical/electronic systems, components, or processes.
Through the university governance and administrative processes, after publication of these curriculum maps, changes may occur in the academic calendar, admission and graduation requirements, academic programs, course offering, policies, and regulation. As a result, these curriculum maps should not be construed as an agreement between the School of Engineering and the reader or as an irrevocable commitment from the School of Engineering to the reader. While a reasonable effort will be made to publicize such changes, a student in encouraged to seek current information from appropriate offices, because responsibility for complying with all applicable requirements ultimately rests with the student.
