The CS program has adopted the student outcomes a-k as prescribed in ABET Criterion 3; these outcomes are grouped into four main outcomes (PSO1, PSO2, PSO3, and PSO4) in order to simplify the measurement, assessment, evaluation, and review processes. Hence, the program enables students to attain, by the time of graduation:
PSO1. Demonstrating knowledge of mathematics, problem solving skills, professional development and interplay between theory and practice in computing.
PSO2. Communicating effectively to explain and present ideas clearly to diverse audiences.
PSO3. Functioning effectively on teams considering positive impact on individuals, organizations, and society.
PSO4. An understanding of professional responsibilities, ethical, legal, security, and social principles.
Student outcomes a-k are listed below:
(a) An ability to apply knowledge of computing and mathematics appropriate to the program’s student outcomes and to the discipline.
(b) An ability to analyze a problem, and identify and define the computing requirements appropriate to its solution.
(c) An ability to design, implement, and evaluate a computer-based system, process, component, or program to meet desired needs.
(d) An ability to function effectively on teams to accomplish a common goal.
(e) An understanding of professional, ethical, legal, security and social issues and responsibilities.
(f) An ability to communicate effectively with a range of audiences
(g) An ability to analyze the local and global impact of computing on individuals, organizations, and society.
(h) Recognition of the need for and an ability to engage in continuing professional development.
(i) An ability to use current techniques, skills, and tools necessary for computing practice.
(j) 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.
(k) An ability to apply design and development principles in the construction of software systems of varying complex
