Outcomes and Objectives

Introduction

Offering Christians an outstanding engineering education that integrates Christian values and faith into engineering practice benefits both the graduate and the graduate's employer. Here you can find our Objectives and Outcomes.

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

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

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

  • enjoying a successful career characterized by:
    • contributing effectively and adding value to the engineering process,
    • functioning well in the workplace as an integral member of a team, and
    • keeping technically current and adaptive to changes in the workplace; 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 worldview, and
    • a stable life that balances career, family, church and community.
