Program Educational Objectives
Program educational objectives are broad statements that describe what graduates are expected to attain within a few years after graduation. The educational objectives for the Computer Science and Computer Information Systems programs are as follows:
Within a few years after graduation, our students will be:
PEO 1: Successful in their chosen professional path as demonstrated by contributions to the industry, promotion and leadership at workplace and career satisfaction.
PEO 2: Successful in their chosen advanced studies at Masters and/or Doctoral level or pursuit of other form of continuing education as demonstrated by timely degree completion or achievement of certification, book, journal or conference publications, and/or conference presentations.
PEO 3: Valuable members of their general community as evidenced by various service activities and awards.
Student outcomes describe what students are expected to know and be able to do by the time of graduation. These relate to the knowledge, skills, and behaviors that students acquire as they progress through the program. Graduates of the Computer Science and Computer Information Systems programs will have an ability to:
- 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.
Computer Science only:
