Program Educational Objectives

A. Mission Statement of Texas Southern University

Texas Southern University is a student-centered comprehensive doctoral university committed to ensuring equality, offering innovative programs that are responsive to its urban setting, and transforming diverse students into lifelong learners, engaged citizens, and creative leaders in their local, national, and global communities.

B. Program Educational Objectives

Are statements that describe the expected accomplishments of graduates during their first few years after graduation. The audiences for objective statements are external constituents such as prospective students, employers, transfer institutions and student sponsors.

The Electrical and Computer Engineering program (ECE) broadly emphasizes the following listed objectives and operating goals that are consistent with the mission statement, as well as the institutional plans for achieving them. The ECE program educational objectives are to assure that students who complete the degree plan in this program have the knowledge and skills.

An accredited baccalaureate program in Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) will achieve the following objectives:

  1. The knowledge, technical and managerial skills necessary to enter careers (entry level) in the field of engineering practice.
  2. Graduates are expected to be prepared to solve engineering problems by application of knowledge of mathematics and science principles.
  3. Graduates should continuous seek opportunities to improve their knowledge and skills by means of obtaining advance degrees, certificates, or training programs offered by employers.
  4. Recognize the value of diversity, identify ethical and societal issues in business and technical tasks.

In order to achieve this mission, Texas Southern University provides

  • Quality instruction in a culture of innovative teaching and learning;
  • Basic and applied research and scholarship that is responsive to community issues;
  • Opportunities for public service that benefit the community and the world.
