Mission Statement

ABETThe missions of the University, the College of Architecture and Engineering, and the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science (EECS) are stated below to allow the reader to see consistency of the EECS department mission with that of the College and the Institution. Our mission is published in the undergraduate handbook and on the Howard University web site where the University and the college missions are also published.

The Mission of Howard University

Howard University, a culturally diverse, comprehensive, research intensive and historically Black private university, provides an educational experience of exceptional quality at the undergraduate, graduate, and professional levels to students of high academic standing and potential, with particular emphasis upon educational opportunities for Black students.

Moreover, the University is dedicated to attracting and sustaining a cadre of faculty who are, through their teaching, research and service, committed to the development of distinguished, historically aware, and compassionate graduates and to the discovery of solutions to human problems in the United States and throughout the world. With an abiding interest in both domestic and international affairs, the University is committed to continuing to produce leaders for America and the global community.

The Mission of the College of Architecture and Engineering.

  1. To serve our students by providing learning environments and curricula which foster their ability to formulate and solve problems, manage complexity and uncertainty. To develop sensitivities to interpersonal relations. To support the acquisition of strong technical competencies.
  2. To contribute to the solution of national and global problems through research, teaching and learning.
