Educational Objective

Objectives are statements that describe the expected accomplishments of graduates during the first three to five years after graduation.

 

Graduates of the Computer Science program will have:

1. adapted, thrived and contributed in an industry setting or completed a graduate program;

2. contributed to the continual improvement and competitiveness of their workplace;

3. demonstrated an ongoing commitment to professional development.

 

Graduates of the Software Engineering program will have:

1. adapted, thrived and contributed in an industry setting or completed a graduate program;

2. contributed to improved software quality and the state of the art by promoting the adoption of best

practices and supporting those best practices that are already being used;

3. demonstrated an ongoing commitment to professional development.

 

Assessment & Evaluation of Educational Objectives:

Every two years in the spring, faculty will contact at least 50% of the alumni four to five years after graduation. Alumni will be asked to fill out an online survey that addresses these objectives. The following academic year, an assessment committee composed of the CS faculty, members of the IAB, a recent graduate (4-5 years out) and a current upper division student look over the results to determine how well we are meeting our objectives and recommend changes to the program as well as to the objectives assessment process. Educational objectives and the assessment process will remain constant for the intervening two years.
