Knowledge Objectives

Computer Science is a rapidly developing area, which impacts nearly every modern endeavor. In that regard, our objectives are to prepare the graduates with fundamental knowledge in Computer Science and to provide them with the abilities and skills so that they can apply into their future careers. Students are also equipped a broad view on the field that connects to and draws from many disciplines, from mathematics, electrical engineering, psychology, statistics, fine arts, linguistics, to physical and life sciences; so that when graduated, they might also flexibility work across disciplines.

The body of knowledge in Computer Science requires:

  • A coverage on the fundamentals of algorithms, data structures, software design, concepts of programming languages and computer organization, and architecture
  • An exposure to a variety of programming languages and systems
  • The proficiency in at least one higher-level language
  • Advanced knowledge that builds on the aforementioned fundamental knowledge to provide deeper concentrations for graduates’ careers.

Student Outcomes

For the competency in the knowledge areas described above, the graduates of Computer Science program are expected to be able to:

  • Apply knowledge of computing and mathematics appropriate to the program’s student outcomes and to the discipline.
  • Analyze a problem, and identify and define the computing requirements appropriate to its solution.
  • Design, implement, and evaluate a computer-based system, process, component, or program to meet desired needs.
  • Leader and function effectively on teams to accomplish a common goal.
  • Understand professional, ethical, legal, security and social issues and responsibilities.
  • Communicate effectively: with a range of audiences, and including those in written and spoken English.
  • Analyze the local and global impact of computing on individuals, organizations, and society
  • Recognize the need for and engage in continuing professional development.
  • Use current techniques, skills, and tools necessary for computing practice.
  • 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.
  • Apply design and development principles in the construction of software systems of varying complexity.
  • Skills in innovative and creative thinking, critical and integrative thinking, and global awareness and multicultural perspectives on diversity.
