Program Accreditation Details

Mission

The mission for engineering students is to enable the professional development of their abilities for analysis and design within the context of environment. The Wilkes view emphasizes engineering as a creative, hands-on profession with leadership responsibilities.

Teamwork, ethics and professional communications permeate the educational experience to enhance the graduate’s technical problem solving ability.

Wilkes Engineering graduates will possess the vision, confidence and will to pursue and assume increasing responsibilities in engineering and leadership throughout their careers.

Program Educational Objectives

Within a few years of graduation, graduates of the Electrical Engineering program will be able to:

PEO1

Demonstrate competency and professionalism by their successful endeavors in either industry or graduate study.

PEO2

Employ current technologies and techniques to design, develop, refine, and implement systems, products, processes, and procedures consistent with the best industry and professional practices.

PEO3

Function as a member or leader of collaborative, interdisciplinary teams and seek progressive, professional responsibilities.

PEO4

Communicate effectively recognizing the environmental, global, societal, economic and ethical issues encountered in a diverse work environment.

Student Outcomes

The Electrical Engineering program will produce graduates with an ability to:
  1. Identify, formulate and solve complex engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science and mathematics.
  2. 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.
  3. Communicate effectively with a range of audiences.
  4. 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.
  5. Function effectively on a team whose members together provide leadership, create a collaborative and inclusive environment, establish goals, plan tasks and meet objectives.
  6. Develop and conduct appropriate experimentation, analyze and interpret data, and use engineering judgment to draw conclusions.
  7. Acquire and apply new knowledge as needed, using appropriate learning strategies.

Mission

It is the mission of the Environmental Engineering and Earth Sciences Department to provide the knowledge and skills for environmental engineering graduates that gives them a sound basis for professional practice and for life-long learning. This emphasizes the student’s learning of fundamental principles of environmental engineering, understanding environmental resource problems in their technical, ecological, socio-political, economic, and ethical context, and proficiency in the use of engineering methods to analyze and solve challenging engineering problems.

Program Educational Objectives

The BS in Environmental Engineering program will produce graduates who after three years:

PEO1

Are prepared for employment with technical knowledge for practice in traditional and broader areas of environmental engineering, which qualifies them to pursue professional licensure in service to government agencies, business and industry.

PEO2

Actively pursue graduate studies leading to advanced degrees.

PEO3

Demonstrate an understanding of ethical, social and professional responsibilities that will assist them in their professional growth through life-long learning.
