Program Objectives and Outcomes

Mission Statement

The mission of the FSU "Bachelor of Science in Engineering" program is to provide excellent undergraduate education in engineering, to establish close partnership with and facilitate technology transfers to industry and government, to contribute to economic development within the state of Maryland, and to provide related service to the campus community and community at large.

Program Educational Objectives

A few years from graduation, alumni of the B.S. in Engineering program at AACC will:

  • Meet expectations in electrical engineering careers or graduate education;
  • Demonstrate appropriate utilization of professional skills of teamwork, problem solving, design, research and communication with all participants;
  • Engage in the community through the application of knowledge of ethical obligations to society, employers, employees, and peers;
  • Engage in life-long learning to update their technical knowledge and understanding of societal and contemporary issues.

Program Outcomes
