The Computer Science program is accredited by the Computing Accreditation Commission and the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, http://www.abet.org*1.
The Computer Science and Engineering (CSE) program combines a rigorous education in computer science with added emphasis on the physical and architectural underpinnings of modern computer system design. With a background that spans computer science and computer engineering, our graduates are able to address computing systems across the hardware-software spectrum.
The Program Educational Objectives describe our graduates expected accomplishments during the first few years following graduation from the program. The CSE Program Educational Objectives are that our alumni/ae:
- Practice and grow as computing professionals, conducting research and/or leading, designing, developing or maintaining projects in various technical areas of computer science and engineering.
- Utilize knowledge and skills in Computer Science and Engineering effectively for improving the society.
- Use new technical advancements of Computer Science and Engineering to produce tangible contributions in the profession.
The CSE Student Outcomes include ABET Engineering Accreditation Commission (EAC) Student Outcomes 1 to 7:
- an ability to identify, formulate, and solve complex engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science, and mathematics
- an ability to apply engineering design to produce solutions that meet specified needs with consideration of public health, safety, and welfare, as well as global, cultural, social, environmental, and economic factors
- an ability to communicate effectively with a range of audiences
- an ability to recognize ethical and professional responsibilities in engineering situations and make informed judgments, which must consider the impact of engineering solutions in global, economic, environmental, and societal contexts
- an ability to function effectively on a team whose members together provide leadership, create a collaborative and inclusive environment, establish goals, plan tasks, and meet objectives
- an ability to develop and conduct appropriate experimentation, analyze and interpret data, and use engineering judgment to draw conclusions
- an ability to acquire and apply new knowledge as needed, using appropriate learning strategies
In addition, our CSE Student Outcomes also include the ABET Computing Accreditation Commission (CAC) Student Outcomes 1 to 6:
- Analyze a complex computing problem and to apply principles of computing and other relevant disciplines to identify solutions.
- Design, implement, and evaluate a computing-based solution to meet a given set of computing requirements in the context of the program’s discipline.
- Communicate effectively in a variety of professional contexts.
- Recognize professional responsibilities and make informed judgments in computing practice based on legal and ethical principles.
- Function effectively as a member or leader of a team engaged in activities appropriate to the program’s discipline.
- Apply computer science theory and software development fundamentals to produce computing-based solutions.
