Education Objectives & Student Outcomes
Program Educational Objectives (PEOs)
In alignment with the New York Institute of Technology mission and the mission of the College of Engineering and Computing Sciences, our program faculty, with input from stakeholders such as employers, alumni, and industrial advisory board members, have determined Program Educational Objectives to prepare versatile engineers who:
- Are successfully employed in computer science or their chosen career path;
- Pursue graduate studies and/or continued education in their field; and
- Function as responsible members of society through engagement in community or professional organizations.
Student Outcomes (SOs)
To support of these objectives, the curriculum has been developed to provide student outcomes describing what degree candidates are expected to know and be able to do by the time they graduate. Upon graduation, students are expected to acquire the ability to:
- 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.
