Accreditation

Programs 


Computer Engineering

The program educational objectives state that, within three to five years after graduation, graduates are expected to:

  • successfully participate in the computer engineering related professions.
  • progress through advanced degree or certificate programs in engineering and other professionally related fields.
  • will advance to positions of leadership, greater responsibility and intellectual challenge. 

Graduates of the CE program will have an ability to:  

  1. identify, formulate, and solve complex engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science, and mathematics. 
  2. 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. communicate effectively with a range of audiences.                                 
  4. 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. function effectively on a team whose members together provide leadership, create a collaborative and inclusive environment, establish goals, plan tasks, and meet objectives.
  6. develop and conduct appropriate experimentation, analyze and interpret data, and use engineering judgment to draw conclusions.
  7. acquire and apply new knowledge as needed, using appropriate learning strategies. 


Computer Science

ABET accreditation


The computer science undergraduate program is accredited by the Computing Accreditation Commission (CAC) of ABET.

The program educational objectives state that, within three to five years after graduation, graduates are expected to:

  • Be employed in professional practice in which they apply principles of computer science to solve complex problems.
  • Consistently communicate clearly, both verbally and in writing, and with persons from diverse educational and cultural backgrounds.
  • Consider the ethical, societal, and global impacts of computing in decision making.
  • Actively pursue professional development through training programs, graduate-level education, or active membership in professional societies.
     

By the time of graduation, students in the Computer Science program will attain 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. 


Information Technology

The program educational objectives state that, within three to five years after graduation, graduates are expected to:

  • Communicate effectively both verbally and in writing in a professional information technology environment with customers, colleagues, and all levels of management.
  • Work effectively on teams in the information technology field, either in a participant role or as a team leader.
  • Understand, articulate and deal with the ethical, societal, and global issues associated with the technology in society.

By the time of graduation, students in the Information Technology program will attain 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. Students will be able to use systemic approaches to select, develop, apply, integrate, and administer secure computing technologies to accomplish user goals.
