Minutes

 

 

I.                    Old Business: Dr. Michael Chajes, Interim Dean, and Dr. Dan

Wiele attended the meeting concerning the breadth requirements for the Electrical Engineering proposals submitted and reviewed at the December 17th CCE meeting. Dean Chajes expressed his concerns with ABET accreditation, and what they expect from Engg. After much discussion it was decided that they would revise their proposal as John Madsen suggested in his email to Dr. Weile. They will have to follow the Breadth Requirements that have been set by the CCE and UGS Committees through Arts and Sciences. The committee will write up a university wide set of Breadth Requirements for Senate approval and for the catalog. This will be for all colleges to follow.
