Computer Engineering

Mission

To provide a solid technical foundation that prepares students for a career that can adapt to rapidly changing technology in computer engineering.

Goals

To educate students with a broad and in-depth knowledge of computing systems, and to develop leaders in this field.

Objectives

  • Graduates should be able to apply the technical skills necessary to design and implement low level computer systems and applications.
  • Graduates should have the theoretical and practical skills needed for advanced graduate education.
  • Graduates should be able to work effectively on teams, to communicate in written and oral form, to practice life-long learning, and to develop the professional responsibility needed for successful technical leadership positions.

Outcomes

The outcome we desire is that our graduates 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, implement, test, and evaluate a computer system, component, or algorithm to meet desired needs.
  • 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 computer engineering solutions in a global and societal context.
  • A recognition of the need for 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.
  • A knowledge of probability and statistics, including applications appropriate to computer engineering.
  • A knowledge of mathematics through differential and integral calculus, basic sciences, and engineering sciences necessary to analyze and design complex systems containing hardware and software components, as appropriate to program objectives.
  • A knowledge of discrete mathematics.

      Computer Science

      Mission

      To provide each student with a solid foundation in the scientific, engineering, and societal aspects of computing that prepares the student for a career that can advance the creation and application of computing technologies for the benefit of society.

      Goals

      To educate students with core knowledge of the software, hardware, and theory of computing; to give each student in-depth knowledge in one or more computing areas; and to develop leaders in this field.

      Objectives

      • To provide the necessary foundation in the principles and methods of computer science while preparing students for a broad range of responsible technical positions in industry and/or advanced graduate education.
      • To provide the technical skills necessary to design and implement computer systems and applications, to conduct open-ended problem solving, and apply critical thinking.
      • To provide an opportunity to work effectively on teams, to communicate in written and oral form, and to develop an appreciation of ethics and social awareness needed to prepare graduates for successful careers and leadership positions.

      Outcomes

      The outcome we desire is that our graduates demonstrate:

      • An ability to apply knowledge of computing and mathematics appropriate to the program’s student outcomes and to the discipline
      • An ability to analyze a problem, and identify and define the computing requirements appropriate to its solution
      • An ability to design, implement, and evaluate a computer-based system, process, component, or program to meet desired needs
      • An ability to function effectively on teams to accomplish a common goal
      • An understanding of professional, ethical, legal, security and social issues and responsibilities
      • An ability to communicate effectively with a range of audiences
      • An ability to analyze the local and global impact of computing on individuals, organizations, and society
      • Recognition of the need for and an ability to engage in continuing professional development
      • An ability to use current techniques, skills, and tools necessary for computing practice.
      • An ability to 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.
      • An ability to apply design and development principles in the construction of software systems of varying complexity.

        Electrical Engineering

        Mission

        To provide an outstanding education for engineers in electrical engineering and to develop future leaders.

        Goals

        To provide students with the education for a rewarding and successful career.

        Objectives

        • Graduates should be prepared for entry-level engineering jobs, for graduate school, or for entrepreneurial activities based on their rigorous education in the fundamentals and applications of electrical engineering, including laboratory and design work.
        • Graduates should be able to pursue a variety of careers, based on a curriculum that allows for a balance between a deep education in one area and a broad education in several areas.
        • Graduates should be able to work effectively on diverse teams, to communicate in written and oral form, to practice life-long learning, and to develop the professional skills and ethics needed for successful leadership positions.

        Outcomes

        The outcome that we desire is that our graduates 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.
