At the time of graduation, students will have demonstrated:
Computer Science (CAC):
(1) An ability to analyze a complex computing problem and to apply principles of computing and other relevant disciplines to identify solutions.
(2) An ability to design, implement, and evaluate a computing-based solution to meet a given set of computing requirements in the context of the program’s discipline.
(3) An ability to communicate effectively in a variety of professional contexts.
(4) An ability to recognize professional responsibilities and make informed judgments in computing practice based on legal and ethical principles.
(5) An ability to function effectively as a member or leader of a team engaged in activities appropriate to the program’s discipline.
(6) An ability to apply computer science theory and software development fundamentals to produce computing-based solutions.
(7) An ability to use current techniques, skills, and tools necessary for computing practice.
(8) An ability to develop software using the principles and practices for secure computing.
(9) An ability to analyze the local and global impact of computing on individuals, organizations, and society.
Software Engineering (EAC):
(1) An ability to identify, formulate, and solve complex engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science, and mathematics.
(2) An ability to apply engineering design to produce solutions that meet specified needs with considerations of public health, safety, and welfare, as well as global, cultural, social, environmental, and economic factors.
(3) An ability to communicate effectively with a range of audiences.
(4) An ability to recognize ethical and professional responsibilities in engineering situations and make informed judgments, which must consider the impact of engineering solutions in global, economic, environmental, and social contexts.
(5) An ability to function effectively on a team whose members together provide leadership, create a collaborative and inclusive environment, establish goals, plan tasks, and meet objectives.
(6) An ability to develop and conduct appropriate experimentation, analyze and interpret data, and use engineering judgment to draw conclusions.
(7) An ability to acquire and apply new knowledge as needed, using appropriate learning strategies.
