Program Objectives & Student Outcomes


The Computer Engineering and Bachelor of Science degree programs are accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission (EAC) of the Accreditation Board of Engineering and Technology (ABET)


The fundamental goal of the undergraduate program in Computer Engineering is to offer a high-quality education, designed to achieve the following specific educational objectives and student outcomes:

Program Educational Objectives

 Within a few years of graduation, Computer Engineering graduates are expected to attain:

  1. Increasing responsibility beyond that in their entry-level description in job functions within Computer Engineering or related employment, and/or
  2. Successful progress within graduate degree programs in Computer Engineering or other professional degrees such as other Engineering, Business, Law or Medicine, and
  3. Continued successful professional development and adaptation to evolving technologies within their chosen field.

Annual Student Enrollment and Graduation Data

Student Outcomes

 SOLVE: an ability to identify, formulate, and solve complex engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science, and mathematics

  1. DESIGN: an ability to apply engineering design to produce solutions that meet specified needs with consideration of public health, safety, and welfare, as well as global, cultural, social, environmental, and economic factors
  2. COMMUNICATE: an ability to communicate effectively with a range of audiences
  3. JUDGE: an ability to recognize ethical and professional responsibilities in engineering situations and make informed judgments, which must consider the impact of engineering solutions in global, economic, environmental, and societal contexts
  4. COOPERATE: an ability to function effectively on a team whose members together provide leadership, create a collaborative and inclusive environment, establish goals, plan tasks, and meet objectives
  5. EXPERIMENT: an ability to develop and conduct appropriate experimentation, analyze and interpret data, and use engineering judgment to draw conclusions
  6. LEARN: an ability to acquire and apply new knowledge as needed, using appropriate learning strategies.

Advanced Courses

The flexibility of the computer engineering curriculum allows the students to choose among advanced courses in the theory and applications of circuits, systems, control, signal processing, communications, digital systems, power systems, electronics, gaseous electronics, optics, electrooptics, electromagnetics, antennas and propagation.

Technical Areas

Employment opportunities exist within a wide range of organizations, such as computer, semiconductor, aviation, electronics, microelectronics, broadcasting, telecommunications, defense, automotive, manufacturing and electric power companies, state and federal agencies and laboratories. Employment opportunities cover the spectrum of engineering activities, ranging from research and development, to systems analysis, automation, manufacturing, customer service and support, marketing and sales.
