  Level of Achievement: 1 Below Expectations Level of Achievement: 2 Meets Expectations Level of Achievement: 3 Exceeds Expectations
Mathematics Modeling

Does not understand the connection between mathematical models and systems in engineering

Chooses a mathematical model or scientific principle that applies to an engineering problem, but has trouble in model development

Combines mathematical and/or scientific principles to formulate system models relevant to engineering


Does not understand the application of  calculus and higher mathematics in solving engineering problems

Shows nearly complete understanding of applications of calculus and higher mathematics  in solving engineering problems

Applies concepts of calculus and higher mathematics to solve engineering problems


Mathematical terms are interpreted incorrectly or not at all

Most mathematical terms are interpreted correctly

Shows appropriate engineering interpretation of mathematical and scientific terms


Does not appear to grasp the connection between theory and the problem

Some gaps in understanding the application of theory to the problem

Translates academic theory into engineering applications


Calculations not performed or performed incorrectly by hand or does not know how to use math software

Minor errors in calculations by hand and applying math software

Executes calculations correctly by hand and using mathematical software


Students studying in lab


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?
