Computer Science and Engineering Program Educational Objectives (PEO's)

PEO's describe what students are expected to attain within a few years after graduation.

  1. Graduates will exhibit leadership and vision in contributing to the computing-related technical and policy decisions of industry, government, and research enterprises.
  2. Graduates will demonstrate computing skills and problem-solving abilities that permit them to contribute in a variety of technical, business, and academic careers.
  3. Graduates will thrive in diverse, global, and multidisciplinary environments.
  4. Graduates will possess the ability to communicate effectively and participate collaboratively in interactions with other computing and engineering professionals.
  5. Graduates will understand the importance of participating in lifelong-learning activities that enhance their professional and personal development.

Student Educational Outcomes

Student outcomes describe what students are expected to know and be able to do by the time they graduate.

The Computer Science and Engineering Program has adopted the outcomes stipulated by the Computing Accreditation Commission (CAC) and the Engineering Accreditation Commission (EAC) of ABET, http://www.abet.org

CAC outcomes:

  1. Ability to analyze a complex computing problem and to apply principles of computing and other relevant disciplines to identify solutions.
  2. Ability to design, implement and evaluate a computing-based solution to meet a given set of computing requirements in the context of the program’s discipline.
  3. Ability to communicate effectively in a variety of professional contexts.
  4. Ability to recognize professional responsibilities and make informed judgments in computing practice based on legal and ethical principles.
  5. Ability to function effectively as a member or leader of a team engaged in activities appropriate to the program’s discipline.
  6. Ability to apply computer science theory and software development fundamentals to produce computing-based solutions

EAC outcomes:

  1. an ability to identify, formulate, and solve complex engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science, and mathematics.
  2. 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. 
  3. an ability to communicate effectively with a range of audiences.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. an ability to develop and conduct appropriate experimentation, analyze and interpret data, and use engineering judgment to draw conclusions
  7. an ability to acquire and apply new knowledge as needed, using appropriate learning strategies.
