The Bachelor of Science program in Computer Engineering is accredited by the Computing Accreditation Commission (CAC) of ABET, https://www.abet.orgEngineering Accreditation Commission

Mission Statement

This mission of the computer engineering program is threefold:

  • The computer engineering program provides students with an education that ensures an excellent understanding of hardware and software systems and the necessary system design and development skills, and that fosters professional curiosity and imagination that drives them throughout their career.
  • The program will stimulate and challenge the students with: exceptional, highly motivated faculty members who share knowledge and excitement about computer engineering; well-designed undergraduate and graduate curricula; research opportunities at all levels; and a first-class educational infrastructure.
  • The program strives to produce graduates who are well prepared to excel in industry, academia and government, and who will take on leadership roles in shaping the technological landscape of the future.

Program Educational Objectives

The educational objectives of the computer engineering program are to produce graduates whose expected accomplishments within a few years of graduation is:

  1. Graduates who choose to pursue a career in industry or government will become productive and valuable computer engineers.
  2. Graduates who choose to pursue advanced degrees will gain admission and succeed in top graduate programs.
  3. In keeping with the legacy of an Aggie engineer, graduates will be successful in attaining positions of leadership in their professional careers.

Student Outcomes

The student outcomes that prepare graduates to attain the program educational objectives are:
  1. an ability to identify, formulate and solve complex engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science and mathematics.
  2. 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.
  3. an ability to communicate effectively with a range of audiences.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. an ability to develop and conduct appropriate experimentation, analyze and interpret data, and use engineering judgment to draw conclusions.
  7. an ability to acquire and apply new knowledge as needed, using appropriate learning strategies.
