About this course
The aim of the computer science and engineering department are
- To prepare students for graduate training in some specialized area of computer science.
- To prepare students for jobs in industry, business or government and
- To provide support courses for students in engineering, mathematics and other fields requiring computing skills.
Upon successful completion of a major in computer science and engineering students will be able to:
- Demonstrate proficiency in problem-solving techniques using the computer
- Demonstrate proficiency in at least two high-level programming languages and two operating systems
- Demonstrate proficiency in the analysis of complex problems and the synthesis of solutions to those problems
- Demonstrate comprehension of modern software engineering principles
- Demonstrate a breadth and depth of knowledge in the discipline of computer science
Computer science is the base and platform for countless industries and disciplines. Today’s employers need graduates with both a solid foundation in the principles of computer science and specialized computing skills and backgrounds – individuals with a generalist’s knowledge, but an expert’s eye for innovation and problem solving. It only makes sense that a computer science education reflects this reality. The Bachelor of Science in Computer Science program at the prepares students to leave school with the tools needed to become innovators and global leaders in computing. Common roles for graduates include computer programmer, software designer and engineer, financial analyst and scientific researcher.
Our student learning outcomes for the B.S. program in computer science are:
- Analyze a complex computing problem and to apply principles of computing and other relevant disciplines to identify solutions.
• Design, implement, and evaluate a computing-based solution to meet a given set of computing requirements in the context of the program’s discipline.
• Communicate effectively in a variety of professional contexts.
• Recognize professional responsibilities and make informed judgments in computing practice based on legal and ethical principles.
• Function effectively as a member or leader of a team engaged in activities appropriate to the program’s discipline.
• Apply computer science theory and software development fundamentals to produce computing-based solutions
