Comprehensive analysis of current and future impact from a global perspective, and integration of this analysis into engineering design and problem solving.

Economic impact

Little or no consideration of economic factors

Awareness of immediate economic impact, with some consideration of long term economic impact

Comprehensive analysis of current and future economic impact, including multiple possible economic scenarios, and integration of this analysis into engineering design and problem solving.

Environmental impact

Little or no consideration of environmental impact

Awareness of current environmental impact, with some consideration of broader environmental impact

Comprehensive analysis of environmental impact, and integration of this analysis into engineering design and problem solving.

Societal impacts

Little or no consideration of the risks and benefits to society

Awareness of the basic risks and benefits to society, with some consideration of broader societal impact

Overview

Electrical engineers work on the generation, transmission and distribution of electricity and how we use it. Computer engineers design and build the hardware and software that run our global marketplace. Think about the gadgets you plug into on a daily basis. How many of them are powered by electricity or computer technology?
