Objectives & Outcomes

We've set predetermined goals for intentional education.

Offering Christians an outstanding engineering education that integrates Christian values and faith into engineering practice benefits both the graduate and the graduate's employer.

  • Objectives - the long-term positive impact an EE or CE degree from OC will have on the graduate's life.
  • Outcomes - the skills and knowledge-base the EE or CE graduate will possess at graduation.

Our Outcomes are chosen to ensure that all OC graduates will achieve our Objectives.

The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering considers its primary constituents to be threefold: industry, students who value an engineering education at a Christian university, and parents of these students. Working with these constituents, we have set the following Program Educational Objectives:

Oklahoma Christian University graduates with an Electrical or Computer Engineering degree will use the talents God has given them to make a difference through

  • Finding joy in a successful career that is characterized by:
    • contributing effectively and adding value to the engineering process,
    • actively pursuing team success by applying technical and leadership skills, and
    • keeping technically current and adaptive to change; and
  • Internalizing a personal faith in God that is exhibited by:
    • consistent ethical behavior based on Christian principles,
    • an exemplary work ethic consistent with their Christian values, and
    • a purposeful life that balances career, family, church, and community.

Outcome 1: Graduates will demonstrate an ability to identify, formulate and solve complex engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science and mathematics

Outcome 2: Graduates will demonstrate 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

Outcome 3: Graduates will demonstrate an ability to develop and conduct appropriate experimentation, analyze and interpret data and use engineering judgment to draw conclusions.

Outcome 4: Graduates will demonstrate an ability to communicate effectively with a range of audiences.

Outcome 5: Graduates will demonstrate 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.

Outcome 6: Graduates will demonstrate an ability to acquire and apply new knowledge as needed, using appropriate learning strategies.

Outcome 7: Graduates will demonstrate 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.

Outcome 8: Graduates will be involved in a variety of service activities that benefit society.

Outcome 9: Graduates will demonstrate a faith in God exhibited through personal devotional practices and a value system based on Christian principles.
