Midshipmen perform iris scans in the Biometrics Laboratory.
The Electrical and Computer Engineering Department offers Bachelor of Science degrees in Electrical Engineering and Computer Engineering. Midshipmen receive a broad education in electrical and computer engineering subjects and principles that enhance their ability to understand, design, and operate naval systems. The department's outstanding faculty, curriculum, and supporting facilities enable the department to achieve teaching and research excellence.
The Electrical Engineering degree is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, http://www.abet.org.
The mission of the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department is to prepare midshipmen to be leaders in today's technologically advanced Navy and Marine Corps by providing them with a firm understanding of the fundamentals of electrical and computer engineering.
- Understand the principles that underlie electrical, electronic, and computational technology.
- Can apply their knowledge quantitatively and qualitatively to solve technical problems.
- Can communicate their ideas clearly, both orally and in writing.
- Work effectively either independently or in teams.
- Are aware of the larger moral and societal context for their actions, and are committed to the highest standards of ethical behavior.
- Engage in lifelong learning so that they can continue to serve the nation and contribute positively to their community throughout their career, whether or not they are in uniform.
Program Educational Objectives
