Computer Science: Program Objectives, Student Outcomes, Population Data

The Computer Science program combines a rigorous education in computer science with added coursework in an area outside of computing, in the sciences, business, or humanities. With a background that combines computer science and a non-computing discipline, our graduates have the breadth of understanding for practice both in traditional areas of computer science and in applications to other disciplines.

The Program Educational Objectives of the Computer Science program describe our graduates expected accomplishments during the first few years following graduation from the program. The Computer Science undergraduate program educational objectives are that our alumni/ae:

  • practice and grow as computing professionals (appropriate to the description of the Computer Science program described above), conducting research and/or leading, designing, developing, or maintaining projects in various technical areas;
  • apply the ethical and social aspects of modern computing technology to the design, development, and usage of computing artifacts; and,
  • enhance their knowledge and skills while analyzing complex computing problems and producing advanced computing-based solutions.

The following Student Outcomes describes the skills imparted by our Computer Science program:

  • 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.
