Program Educational Objectives Review

Academic Year 2012-2013

 

Review of Program Educational Objectives and Changes to the Mission Statement

In Spring 2013, the Department of Computer Science held a series of meetings to discuss the objectives and mission of the BSCS program. The faculty decided to change the Mission Statement to:

To enable the graduates of the program to function as software engineers or to further their education in graduate school.

The previous statement stated that the mission of the program was to enable graduates to advance in their career. This previous statement is lacking in specifying the domain of the program, which is Computer Science. Therefore, the faculty decided to insert the term "software engineers" into the mission statement.
