Educational Objectives And Student Outcomes

Educational Objectives

After 3 to 5 years of graduation, Telecommunication Engineer graduates are expected to be able to:
 
  1. Solve professional challenges at a global level, both in the elaboration and execution of projects, as well as in the operation and maintenance of telecommunications systems, considering the social, economic and environmental aspects, framed in ethical and moral aspects.
  2. Successfully propose and lead the development and implementation of telecommunications solutions for the well-being of society, improving the quality of people´s lives, whether as an entrepreneur or providing their professional services in a company.
  3. Acquire and improve humanistic, scientific and technological skills and knowledge that allow to develop themselves in the area of telecommunications, throughout their professional life, in accordance with the requirements of society.
  4. Show communication abilities in the Spanish and English languages and collaboration skills to inspire, motivate, guide and interact in groups or work teams within a professional environment in order to bring ideas to action. Recognize and promote values and attitudes that consider human rights and multicultural aspects in order to participate as a responsible citizen and support the creation of a fairer society.
 
Students Outcomes

The Student Outcomes (SOs ) establish a defined path for the TELG program.

From 2019:

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.

8. A recognition of the need for entrepreneurship and the abilities to become an entrepreneur.

The student outcomes were approved by the FIEC Council the 1st of February, 2010 (Resolution 2010-018) and updated them the 8th of April, 2013 (Resolution 2013-092). The indicated SOs establish a defined path for the TELG program in order to comply the Abet Accreditation Process.

Starting 2019, the TELG will follow the criteria for Accrediting Engineering Programs 2019- 2020 issued by the Engineering Accreditation Commission (EAC). The mapping of SO A-K to SO 1-7 is shown in the next table:
