Accreditation and Licensure

  • The Bachelors of Science degree in Electrical Engineering is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission  ABET, http://www.abet.org. 

    PROGRAM EDUCATIONAL OBJECTIVES 

    The Electrical Engineering Program has two options: Electrical and Electronics and Computer Engineering. The program is designed to guide students to build technical competency, and effective communication and leadership skills. Our program integrates the Core of Discovery and emphasizes holistic student development in accordance with the mission of Gannon University. The program educational objectives for the undergraduate program, which leads to a Bachelor of Science degree in Electrical Engineering, are to produce graduates who: 

    • Demonstrate professional ethics and personal values in daily and professional life that exercise informed literary and aesthetic judgments by leveraging diverse cultures and societies 
    • Demonstrate teamwork and leadership qualities and/or attainment of leadership roles in a global work environment 
    • Demonstrate technical competency in applying comprehensive engineering knowledge throughout their chosen profession  
    • Demonstrate passion for life-long learning through engaging in the rapidly changing and emerging areas of technology, and/or continued professional development  

    To achieve these objectives, the ECE Program maintains a modern curriculum, state-of-the-art laboratories and teaching techniques, a well-qualified faculty, and a strong advising system.
