ABET Goals

ABET Goals

Program goals for the Bachelor of Science degrees in 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 following goals: demonstrate professional integrity and ethical decision making, embrace diversity as a source of lifelong learning, and prepare to live and work in a global society.

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:

  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.

Student Outcomes for Computer Science Majors

Graduates of the Computer Science program will have an ability to:

  1. Analyze a complex computing problem and to apply principles of computing and other relevant disciplines to identify solutions.
  2. 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. Communicate effectively in a variety of professional contexts.
  4. Recognize professional responsibilities and make informed judgments in computing practice based on legal and ethical principles.
  5. Function effectively as a member or leader of a team engaged in activities appropriate to the program’s discipline.
  6. Apply computer science theory and software development fundamentals to produce computing-based solutions.
