Program Criteria

  • 1. Curriculum

i.    The structure of the curriculum must provide both breadth and depth across the range of engineering topics implied by the title of the program.

ii.    The curriculum must include probability and statistics, including applications appropriate to the program  name; mathematics through differential and integral calculus; sciences (defined as biological, chemical,  or physical science); and engineering topics (including computing science) necessary to analyze and  design complex electrical and electronic devices, software, and systems containing hardware and  software components.

iii.    The curriculum for programs must include advanced mathematics, such as differential equations, linear algebra, complex variables, and discrete mathematics.
