Program Objectives:

The Computer Science degree program at Eastern Connecticut State University provides students the foundations and skills for future work and careers in computing. Additionally the curriculum prepares students to continue acquiring new knowledge and skills, to further their study, and to advance in a fast changing world. We accomplish these goals by placing our computer science program in the context of the liberal arts core curriculum.

Upon graduation, students will:

  1. Possess practical and theoretical knowledge of computer science sufficient to work professionally and contribute to the regional and global economic development.
  2. Be able to apply computational techniques to design and implement solutions to real-world problems.
  3. Be prepared for advanced education in computer science and continued professional development.
  4. Possess the skills and the intellectual abilities that will enable them to adapt in the ever-changing field of computer science.

Program Learning Outcomes*:

  1. Acquire the fundamental computing knowledge and skills recommended jointly by the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) and the IEEE Computer Society for undergraduate computer science programs.
  2. Analyze a problem, and identify and define the requirements appropriate to a computer-based solution.
  3. Apply computing principles to design, implement, and evaluate a computer-based solution to meet a given set of requirements for a specific problem.
  4. Think and explain computer-based solutions at multiple levels of abstraction.
  5. Communicate effectively to others about technical information in computing and computational solutions.
  6. Work effectively with others to plan, produce, and deliver computer-based solutions.
  7. Apply relevant legal and ethical principles to make informed judgments and decision in computing practice.

*These learning outcomes are inspired in part by the criteria for accrediting computing programs established by the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET) and the Computing Sciences Accreditation Board (CSAB).
