Computer Science & Engineering: Program Objectives, Student Outcomes, Population Data

The Computer Science and Engineering 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 of the Computer Science and Engineering program combines a rigorous education in Computer Science with added emphasis on the physical and architectural underpinnings of modern computer system design.  Our graduates are able to engineer computing systems across the hardware-software spectrum. PEOs describe our graduates expected accomplishments during the first few years following graduation from the program.

The Computer Science and Engineering undergraduate 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 following Student Outcomes describes the skills imparted by our Computer Science & Engineering program:

  • 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
