Department of Engineering

Mission & Objectives      Accredited-EAC-Web

The BS in Engineering Program is accredited by the Engineering Commission of ABET, 111 Market Place, Suite 1050, Baltimore, MD 21202-4012.  Phone: 410-347-7700.

The mission of ECU's Department of Engineering is to provide a theory-based, application-oriented general engineering education that serves as a basis for career success and lifelong learning.  Our graduates demonstrate the engineering and scientific knowledge to analyze, design, improve and evaluate integrated technology-based systems.  Our program welcomes a diverse student body and provides the support to foster its success.

Graduates of the BS in engineering program will demonstrate:

Career Success - Use their education to be successful in a technical career or graduate studies.  Demonstrate competence in applying classical methods and modern engineering tools.

Engineering Design - Analyze technical, environmental, and societal issues related to engineering designs and technology systems.

Leadership and Teamwork - Be productive team members and leaders, using skills in human relations and communication.

Lifelong Learning - Practice a lifelong commitment to learning and professional development.

Professional and Ethical Standards - Demonstrate commitment to the professional and ethical standards of engineering and recognize the importance of community and professional service.

 Graduates of the ECU Engineering Program have:

  • An ability to apply knowledge of mathematics, science and engineering.
  • An ability to design and conduct experiments, as well as to analyze and interpret data.
  • An ability to design a system, component, or process to meet desired needs within realistic constraints such as economic, environmental, social, political, ethical, health and safety, manufacturability, and sustainability.
  • An ability to function on multi-disciplinary teams.
  • An ability to identify, formulate, and solve engineering problems.
  • An understanding professional and ethical responsibility.
