Computer Science Student Outcomes

All students in the Computer Science program will be measured against the following student outcomes.  Assessment and evaluation of these outcomes will follow a graduation class, beginning with the Class of '10, followed by the Class of '13, etc.


General Student Outcomes.  Graduates of the program will have an ability to: 

  1. Analyze a complex computing problem and to apply principles of computing and other relevant disciplines to identify solutions. 
  2. 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. Communicate effectively in a variety of professional contexts. 
  4. Recognize professional responsibilities and make informed judgments in computing practice based on legal and ethical principles. 
  5. Function effectively as a member or leader of a team engaged in activities appropriate to the program’s discipline.
Specific CS Student Outcomes
CS-6. Apply computer science theory and software development fundamentals to produce computing-based solutions.
