Objectives and Outcomes

    1. Computer Science graduates will be successful professionals in the field with solid fundamental knowledge of computer science, making valuable technical contributions to the design, development, deployment, and production of computing systems and related areas.
    2. Graduates utilize and exhibit strong communication and skills, as well as professional and ethical principles when functioning as members and leaders of multi-disciplinary teams.
    3. Graduates are sufficiently prepared for their first and subsequent positions, as they are independent learners and they will have the ability to learn and master new computing technologies, including being accepted into or completing advanced degree programs.
    1. Maintain and increase the number of students who complete the program per academic year (productivity)
    2. Increase the number of student presentations/publications/intellectual products (productivity and quality)
    3. Increase the number of students who earn credit hours for internship (quality)
    4. Increase the number of students who conduct thesis research (quality)

Computer Science Accreditation

The Bachelor of Science in Computer Science program is accredited by the Computing Accreditation Commission of ABET, since 2001.
The Master of Science in Computer Science is not accredited, as there is no graduate accreditation body.
