The goals of the three Bachelor of Science programs, computer engineering, computer science, and electrical engineering, are to prepare students for entry into the profession; to instill in students the capabilities required by the discipline, the recognition of the need to enhance the discipline, and the desire for life-long learning; and to equip students with a general knowledge of technical and non-technical disciplines so that they are prepared for further study in other fields including professional and graduate education.
Program Educational Objectives (All Majors)
- Graduates who enter professional practice will demonstrate progression toward positions of technical responsibility or leadership in their discipline.
- Graduates who pursue full-time graduate or advanced professional study will successfully complete their programs of study in their discipline.
- Graduates will demonstrate professionalism that is consistent with the goals of life-long learning and professional ethics.
Student Outcomes for Computer Engineering and Electrical Engineering Majors
The Computer Engineering and Electrical Engineering programs enable students to achieve, by the time of graduation:
- 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.
Student Outcomes for Computer Science Majors
Graduates of the Computer Science program will have an ability to:
- 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.
