Program Educational Objectives and Student Outcomes

 

Program Educational Objectives

The graduates of the Computer Engineering program will have the following characteristics 3 to  5 years after graduation: 

  • Establish a successful career utilizing their education in computer engineering or engage in advanced studies.
  • Communicate effectively in both written and oral forms across all levels of engineering processes.
  • Engage in lifelong learning to stay current with their profession as it changes.
  • Demonstrate professional competence, integrity and responsibility in diverse work environments.

Student Outcomes

By the time of graduation, student outcomes should include the following. 

  1. An ability to identify, formulate, and solve complex engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science, and mathematics
  2. 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
  3. An ability to communicate effectively with a range of audiences
  4. 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
  5. 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
  6.  An ability to develop and conduct appropriate experimentation, analyze and interpret data, and use engineering judgment to draw conclusions
  7. An ability to acquire and apply new knowledge as needed, using appropriate learning strategies.

Program requirements change from year to year. Students need to complete course requirements according to the academic year they last declared their major. This information is included on the PAWS Report.

Additional Resources

Career Advising

Students meet with a faculty adviser at least once per year for the purpose of reviewing progress towards the degree and to ensure that the student’s course choices allow the student to complete their degree program in a timely manner. And also to provide career advising to ensure the students are career ready.

Mission Statement

The mission of the computer engineering degree program is to provide all its students with a complete foundation in the theoretical and practical underpinnings of computer engineering strengthened through hands-on learning. The program will provide students with the design, analysis, reasoning, and communication skills necessary to pursue a meaningful career in computer engineering, or related fields. Program stakeholders will foster relationships with industry to increase student learning through collaborative projects that benefit society. The program will engage students in active, fundamental and applied research that enables them to pursue advanced degrees and contribute to the growing body of computer engineering knowledge.
