The educational objectives of the electrical engineering undergraduate program are to produce graduates who, within a few years of graduation, will:
- Demonstrate professional advancement as productive practicing engineers who continuously develop their technical expertise, as demanded by the rapidly changing technologies.
- Attain enhanced and broadened knowledge via graduate education in either engineering or other fields such as science, mathematics, business, medicine, and law.
These objectives are consistent with the mission of the University of Colorado Denver, congruent with the goals of the College of Engineering, Design and Computing and reflective of the mission of the Department of Electrical Engineering.
- This is an on-campus program.
