The Computer Engineering program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, http://www.abet.org.
Computer Engineering Program Educational Objectives
The Computer Engineering program combines coursework in computer science and electrical engineering providing a program that focuses on the design of computer hardware and digital systems.
The Computer Engineering undergraduate program educational objectives are that our alumni/ae:
- make technical contributions to design, development, and manufacturing in their practice of computer engineering (corresponding to the description of the Computer Engineering program given above).
- advance in their professional career.
- engage in professional development or post-graduate education to pursue flexible career paths amid future technological changes.
Computer Engineering Student Outcomes
The CMPE Student Outcomes are identical to the EAC Outcomes (a)-(k). They require that our graduate will demonstrate:
- an ability to apply knowledge of mathematics, science, and engineering.
- an ability to design and conduct experiments, as well as to analyze and interpret data.
- an ability to design a system, component, or process to meet desired needs within realistic constraints such as economic, environmental, social, political, ethical, health and safety, manufacturability, and sustainability.
- an ability to function on multi-disciplinary teams.
- an ability to identify, formulate, and solve engineering problems.
- an understanding of professional and ethical responsibility.
- an ability to communicate effectively.
- the broad education necessary to understand the impact of engineering solutions in a global, economic, environmental, and societal context.
- a recognition of the need for, and an ability to engage in life-long learning.
- a knowledge of contemporary issues.
- an ability to use the techniques, skills, and modern engineering tools necessary for engineering practice.
