Computer Science and Engineering, BSCSE
Program Educational Objectives:
Graduates of the program will be employed in the computing profession, and will be engaged in learning, understanding and applying new ideas and technologies as the field evolves.
Graduates with an interest in, and aptitude for, advanced studies in computing will have completed, or be actively pursuing, graduate studies in computing.
Graduates will be informed and involved members of their communities, and responsible engineering and computing professionals who take appropriate account, in their professional work, of such issues as privacy, security, copyright etc. in ways that are consistent with the ACM/IEEE Code of Conduct.
Student Outcomes (EAC)
Students in the BS-CSE program will attain:
- 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 (CAC)
