Goals/Mission Statement

Program Goals - The program educational goals of the Department of Electrical Engineering undergraduate programs at The University of Mississippi are

  1. To educate students in the fundamentals of electrical engineering with an engineering science emphasis such that students are able to apply basic knowledge to achieve technological advances toward the satisfaction of human needs,
  2. To support professional, industrial, and economic development by providing students with opportunities for an intensive learning experience and direct application of knowledge in the field of electrical engineering, and
  3. To prepare students for continued professional education, including graduate study.

These goals are consistent with The University of Mississippi mission statement and the vision statements of The University of Mississippi strategic plan, Ole Miss through 2010: A Guide for the Journey, which focuses resources in the areas of instruction, research, and service.

Program Philosophy - The electrical engineering undergraduate program is founded on basic sciences, mathematics, and engineering science fundamentals. The program emphasizes engineering science and focuses on the application of scientific knowledge to the solution of engineering problems. This focus is intended to lead students to develop analysis and design skills, and original thought processes that will serve them throughout their careers in a rapidly changing world.

The electrical engineering program is based on the philosophy that specialization is better acquired at the graduate level. The program is a broad-based program with an emphasis on the fundamentals of electrical engineering. The curriculum consists of engineering background courses in science and mathematics; courses in the humanities, social sciences, and fine arts that foster an appreciation of the interrelationship of basic sciences, technological advances, and society; and major multi- course sequences in engineering. Multi-course sequence areas are

  1. Core topics common to all areas of engineering,
  2. Circuits and electronics,
  3. Analog systems,
  4. Digital systems,
  5. Electromagnetic fields, RF and microwaves, and
  6. Engineering design.

The general program emphasis area requires multiple courses in each of the above areas. The emphasis areas of computer engineering, RF and wireless engineering, and telecommunications permit additional concentration in one of the areas and require multiple courses in at least five of the above areas.

Program Objectives - Based on our philosophy and goals, the faculty of the Department of Electrical Engineering has adopted the following undergraduate program educational objectives.

  1. Graduates will be successful in a broad range of electrical engineering careers or other diverse areas that utilize their analytical and/or professional skills.
  2. Graduates will engage in life-long learning relevant to their career path through professional development activities, advanced education or degrees, or other career-appropriate options.
  3. Graduates will advance in their professional careers by taking on increasing responsibilities or leadership roles, or by obtaining advanced degrees.
