Objectives and Outcomes

Computer Science PEOs

In February 2012, objectives of previous years were revised and a new set of objectives were adopted.

The following table lists the adopted set of PEOs.

PEO-1 Develop graduates’ abilities in the applications of the necessary mathematical tools, scientific basics, and fundamental knowledge of Computer Science. (Outcome A)
PEO-2 Yield graduates with robust problem-solving skills, professional practices, and ethical standards to meet the market needs. (Outcomes A, B, C, E, and I)
PEO-3 Yield graduates capable of using and developing high-quality computer systems and state of the art tools and techniques to serve the needs of various sectors. (Outcomes G and I)
PEO-4 Prepare graduates for successful team work and effective oral and written communication. (Outcomes D and F)
PEO-5 Prepare graduates for continually-growing professional development. (Outcome H)
PEO-6 Prepare graduates for research and to pursue graduate studies in Computer Science fields, supported with the best skills required for academic success.
Computer Science PEOs

By the end of Spring Semester 2012, another revision has been conducted as a result of initial discussion among various constituencies. The Computer Science Department adopted the following broader statements as shown in the following table.

Develop graduates with an in-depth knowledge and robust understanding of the fundamentals of Computer Science required by the Computing Industry
Yield graduates capable of using and developing high-quality state of the art software systems to serve the needs of various sectors
Develop graduates’ professional and ethical responsibilities as leaders in the information technology community
Develop graduates capable of pursuing graduate studies, research, and/or advancing in their technical career

Student Outcomes

SO-a Ability to apply knowledge of computing and mathematics appropriate to the discipline
SO-b Ability to analyze a problem, and identify and define the computing requirements
appropriate to its solution
SO-c Ability to design, implement, and evaluate a computer-based system, process, component, or program to meet desired needs
SO-d Ability to function effectively on teams to accomplish a common goal
SO-e Understand professional, ethical, legal, security and social issues and responsibilities
SO-f Ability to communicate effectively with a range of audiences
SO-g Ability to analyze the local and global impact of computing on individuals, organizations, and society
SO-h Recognize the need for and be able to engage in continuing professional development
SO-i Ability to use current techniques, skills, and tools necessary for computing practice

The following table shows a detailed mapping between the PEOs and SOs of the B. Sc. in Computer Science program. As shown in the table, SOs cover all of the PEOs. Some PEOs are mapped to more than one student outcome. The knowledge, skills, abilities, and attitudes targeted by our student outcomes help achieve the long term objectives of our Computer Science program.
