Program Educational Objectives
The educational objectives for the BSCS program are to produce graduates who are expected to have demonstrated the ability to:
- Graduates will apply the concepts of the discipline including analysis, design, and implementation of information and computing systems.
- Graduates will be employed in the computing profession, and will be engaged in life-long learning, understanding, and applying new ideas and technologies as the field evolves.
- Graduates will be informed and involved members of their communities, and responsible engineering and computing professionals.
The student outcomes for the BSCS program are as follows:
- An ability to apply knowledge of computing and mathematics appropriate to the discipline.
- An ability to analyze a problem, and identify and define the computing requirements appropriate to its solution.
- An ability to function effectively on teams to accomplish a common goal.
- An ability to communicate effectively with a range of audiences.
- An ability to translate fundamental computing concepts to a variety of emerging technologies.
- An ability to apply mathematical foundations, algorithmic principles, and computer science theory in the modeling and design of computer-based systems in a way that demonstrates comprehension of the tradeoffs involved in design choices.
- An ability to apply design and development principles in the construction of software systems of varying complexity.
