ECBE Programs Enrollment and Graduation Data

Student enrollments in each of the Electrical, Computer and Biomedical Engineering Programs are small at Union, allowing for an excellent student-to-faculty ratio and a hands-on approach to each curriculum.

The enrollment and graduation data for the ECBE programs are maintained by the Union College Institutional Research Office.

ECBE Programs Educational Objectives and Student Outcomes

  • Educational Objectives for Electrical, Computer & Biomedical Engineering Programs

    Within a few years of graduation, our students will be working in their chosen profession or studying for an advanced degree, and will

    • apply their technical, critical thinking, teamwork and communication skills to innovate in their chosen field
    • reflect on how their engineering educational experience within the liberal arts has prepared them to grow in their career and life paths
    • promote inclusion in all aspects of their professional endeavors
  • Outcomes for Electrical, Computer & Biomedical Engineering Students

    Our students will have

    1. an ability to identify, formulate, and solve complex engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science, and mathematics
    2. an ability to apply engineering design to produce solutions that meet specified needs with consideration of public health, safety, and welfare, as well as global, cultural, social, environmental, and economic factors
    3. an ability to communicate effectively with a range of audiences
    4. an ability to recognize ethical and professional responsibilities in engineering situations and make informed judgments, which must consider the impact of engineering solutions in global, economic, environmental, and societal contexts
    5. an ability to function effectively on a team whose members together provide leadership, create a collaborative and inclusive environment, establish goals, plan tasks, and meet objectives
    6. an ability to develop and conduct appropriate experimentation, analyze and interpret data, and use engineering judgment to draw conclusions
    7. an ability to acquire and apply new knowledge as needed, using appropriate learning strategies.

ECBE Programs Advisory Committees

The ECBE Department has an advisory committee to ensure that Union’s EE, CpE, and BME programs are responsive to the needs of its constituencies. Representatives of the constituencies are brought together to review the published mission statement and objectives of the program, discuss the program’s progress in meeting the objectives, and to make recommendations for changes in mission, objectives and assessment procedures for the program.
