  • Academic Learning Compact - Computer Science, Engineering

    The College of Engineering's computer science program combines a strong engineering technical basis with a flexible interdisciplinary component and strong communication skills. This program emphasizes the technical aspects of computer science and is less flexible than the computer science program in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences.

    Additional information is available from your major's website.

    Before Graduating You Must

    • Pass assessment according to department rubric of student performance on a major design experience.
    • Pass assessment in one or more core courses of individual assignments targeted to each SLO.
    • Complete requirements for the baccalaureate degree, as determined by faculty.

    Skills You Will Acquire in the Major (SLOs)

    1. Apply knowledge of mathematics and science to computer science problems.
    2. Design and conduct computer-science experiments, analyzing and interpreting the data.
    3. Design a computer science system, component or process to meet desired needs within realistic economic, environmental, social, political, ethical, health and safety, manufacturability and sustainability constraints.
    4. Communicate technical data and design information effectively in writing and in speech to other computer scientists and engineers.
