Mission Statement University of Missouri-St. Louis/Washington University Joint Undergradute Engineering Program Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering

The mission of the University of Missouri-St. Louis/Washington University Joint Undergraduate Engineering Program is to provide a high quality electrical engineering education leading to a well-trained, sophisticated work force primarily for the St. Louis region. The program strives to excite and nurture the intellectual, technical, professional and personal development of the students through a partnership which provides a mechanism for Washington University to share its campus, resources and personnel with the UMSL students, many of whom are place-bound individuals. The Joint Program reflects the commitment of both institutions to work together to provide for the mechanical engineering needs of the St. Louis community.

Program Educational Objectives Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering

The University of Missouri-St. Louis/Washington University Joint Undergraduate Engineering Program aspires to make positive, substantive and lasting contributions to the lives of our students. The nontraditional and traditional students in the electrical engineering program often have work experience in or related to engineering practice. The program seeks to impart an education that inspires the graduates to constantly share their knowledge with others, to continually improve their knowledge and understanding, and to persistently adapt to change in technology and world needs. Graduates of the program are expected to develop and use professional skills that facilitate their continued career growth well beyond their graduation and should be able to apply their comprehensive education within the electrical engineering profession or a related field. The objectives are to:

  • Meet the needs of employers of electrical engineers, with an emphasis on the St. Louis region.
  • Meet the expectations of graduate schools that our alumni attend.

The Student Outcomes

The student outcomes are the skills and knowledge expected of all students at the time of their graduation. Faculty members will assess these student outcomes in their classes every semester. The student outcomes for the Engineering Program are:

  • 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 multidisciplinary teams
  • An ability to identify, formulate, and solve engineering problems
  • An understanding of professional and ethical responsibility
  • An ability to communicate effectively
  • The broad education necessary to understand the impact of engineering solutions in a global, economic, environmental and societal context
  • A recognition of the need for, and an ability to engage in, life-long learning
  • A knowledge of contemporary social issues
  • An ability to use the techniques, skills, and modern engineering tools necessary for engineering practice

Annual Student Enrollment and Graduation Data

  • Pre-Engineering enrollment (total for all Engineering students): 185
