Program Educational Objectives

The mission of the Computer Engineering degree program is to prepare graduates with the knowledge and skills needed for successful computer engineering practice and post-baccalaureate education. The program educational objectives are that five years after graduation Computer Engineering graduates will be:

  • Contributing to their communities and society with innovations in computer technology and applications and an understanding of contemporary technological issues.
  • Continuing their professional development through professional study and research.
  • Advancing in their careers through their knowledge of computer engineering, by communicating and working effectively as team members and by interacting responsibly with colleagues, customers, employers, and others in society.

Student Outcomes

The Computer Engineering program has the following student outcomes which are abilities that we measure at the time of graduation or before that will enable our graduates to achieve the program educational objectives.

  • 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 multidisciplinary 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
