  • Recognized by their peers and superiors for their technical skills in the computing field.
  • Recognized by their peers and superiors for their professional skills in the computing field (e.g. communication, teamwork, leadership).
  • Actively involved in local and regional professional service.
  • Graduate students in computer science and related disciplines.
  • Professionals actively engaged in activities which allow for the continuous development of their computing skills.

The student outcomes of the computer science degree are narrower statements that describe what students are expected to know and be able to do by the time of graduation. In other words, these relate to the skills, knowledge, and behaviors students acquire in their matriculation through the degree program.

Student Outcomes of the Computer Science Program

Upon graduation students will have:

  • An ability to analyze a problem, and to identify and define the computing requirements appropriate to its solution.
  • An ability to design, implement and evaluate a computer-based solution to meet a given set of computing requirements in the context of the discipline.
  • An ability to communicate effectively with a range of audiences about technical information.
  • An ability to make informed judgments in computing practice based on legal and ethical principles.
  • An ability to function effectively on teams to establish goals, plan tasks, meet deadlines, manage risk, and produce deliverables.
  • An ability to apply theory in the design and implementation of computer-based solutions.
  • An ability to reason about and explain computer-based solutions at multiple levels of abstraction.
