Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology

Objectives

Computer Engineering committee has established the following set of program educational objectives for the Bachelor of Science in Computer Engineering:

1. Illuminate - lifelong learning in computer engineering


Alumni are expected to track state-of-the-art technology in computer engineering, to learn new processes, tools and device technologies, and to apply this knowledge in pursuit of graduate school work and/or technology careers - including but not limited to technical development, project management and technical sales.

2.  Investigate - demonstration of computer engineering principles


Alumni should have the ability to find and access information relevant to an application under development, be able to model various problem domains, and to apply techniques of algorithm, hardware and system design to new problem solutions as a productive technical team member.

3.  Innovate - creative application of computer engineering principles


Alumni should be able to apply the general principles of computer engineering to innovative real-world problem solutions that demonstrate consideration for aesthetics, economics, ergonomics, ethics, safety, and sustainability.

Learning Outcomes

Program outcomes describe what students are expected to know and be able to do by the time of graduation. These are as follows:
 

  • An ability to apply knowledge of mathematics, science, and engineering
  • An ability to design and conduct experiments, as well as to analyze and interpret data
  • An ability to design a system, component, or process to meet desired needs within realistic constraints such as economic, environmental, social, political, ethical, health and safety, manufacturability, and sustainability
  • An ability to function on multi-disciplinary teams
  • An ability to identify, formulate, and solve engineering problems
  • An understanding of professional and ethical responsibility
  • An ability to communicate effectively
  • The broad education necessary to understand the impact of engineering solutions in a global, economic, environmental, and societal context
  • A recognition of the need for, and an ability to engage in life-long learning
  • A knowledge of contemporary issues
  • An ability to use the techniques, skills, and modern engineering tools necessary for engineering practice

The objectives are regularly reviewed by the constituents of the department's programs, including industrial advisory committee, students in the program, and the faculty of the department.

The objectives are used to focus the undergraduate degree program and assure the best possible education to our students
