Program Educational Objectives
The faculty of the School of Engineering and Computer Science working in conjunction with alumni and their advisory board, has established five Program Educational Objectives (PEOs) which are common to all degrees offered within the school. These PEOs, which can also be found in our university catalog, are:
- They are successful in a profession related to their field of study.
- They are successful in graduate-level education.
- They continue to develop professionally and remain current in their field.
- They make sound professional and ethical decisions based upon biblical truths.
- They actively serve in a local church and support Christian ministries in their community and around the world.
Engineering Student Outcomes
The following is the list of student outcomes for each of the engineering programs in the department:
- 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 multidisciplinary 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
Computer Science Student Outcomes
The following are the student outcomes for the computer science program:
- Analyze a complex computing problem and to apply principles of computing and other relevant disciplines to identify solutions.
- Design, implement, and evaluate a computing-based solution to meet a given set of computing requirements in the context of the program’s discipline.
- Communicate effectively in a variety of professional contexts.
- Recognize professional responsibilities and make informed judgments in computing practice based on legal and ethical principles.
- Function effectively as a member or leader of a team engaged in activities appropriate to the program’s discipline.
- Apply computer science theory and software development fundamentals to produce computing-based solutions.
