Accreditation: ABET

Program in Computer Science (CSCI)

The Bachelor of Science in Engineering in Computer Science is accredited by the Computing Accreditation Commission of ABET,


The Bachelor of Science in Engineering (BSE) in Computer Science provides students with an in-depth education in the conceptual foundations of computer science and in complex software and hardware systems. It allows them to explore the connections between computer science and a variety of other disciplines in engineering and outside. Combined with a strong education in mathematics, sciences, and the liberal arts it prepares students to be leaders in computer science practice, applications to other disciplines, and research.

Program Educational Outcomes

Graduates from the program will:

  1. Have demonstrated the ability to successfully apply the analytical, problem solving, design and technical skills developed during the course of their education to various tasks and challenges that arise in the course of their careers or further studies.
  2. Perform successfully as members and leaders of multi-disciplinary and multi-cultural teams.
  3. Demonstrate effective communication skills, and have an appreciation for non-technical disciplines.
  4. Have developed the ethical sensibilities and global perspective that allow them to appreciate how the decisions they make impact their community and society at large.

Student Outcomes

Students graduating with a degree in Computer Science have:

  1. An ability to apply knowledge of computing and mathematics appropriate to the program’s student outcomes and to the discipline.
  2. An ability to analyze a problem, and identify and define the computing requirements appropriate to its solution.
  3. An ability to design, implement, and evaluate a computer-based system, process, component, or program to meet desired needs.
  4. An ability to function effectively on teams to accomplish a common goal.
  5. An understanding of professional, ethical, legal, security and social issues and responsibilities.
  6. An ability to communicate effectively with a range of audiences.
  7. An ability to analyze the local and global impact of computing on individuals, organizations and society.
  8. Recognition of the need for and an ability to engage in continuing professional development.
  9. An ability to use current techniques, skills, and tools necessary for computing practice.
  10. 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.
  11. An ability to apply design and development principles in the construction of software systems of varying complexity.
