The program educational objectives describe what graduates are expected to attain within a few years of graduation utilizing the knowledge gained from their academic program. The educational objectives for the bachelor of science in Computer Engineering are:

Student Outcomes

The Student Outcomes define the knowledge and skills that will be mastered by our graduates. To enable TTU EE and CMPE students to accomplish the Educational Objectives, the curriculum is designed to ensure students, at the time of graduation, have the following:

  1. An ability to apply knowledge of mathematics, science, and engineering.
  2. An ability to design and conduct experiments, as well as to analyze and interpret data.
  3. An ability to design a system, component, or process to meet desired needs within realistic constraints such as economic, environmental, social, political, ethical, health and safety, manufacturability, and sustainability.
  4. An ability to function on multidisciplinary teams.
  5. An ability to identify, formulate, and solve engineering problems.
  6. An understanding of professional and ethical responsibility.
  7. An ability to communicate effectively.
  8. The broad education necessary to understand the impact of engineering solutions in a global, economic, environmental, and societal context.
  9. A recognition of the need for and an ability to engage in life-long learning.
  10. A knowledge of contemporary issues.
  11. An ability to use the techniques, skills, and modern engineering tools necessary for engineering practice.
  12. Computer Engineering Program Specific Criteria

    By the time of graduation, students must also be able

    • To apply probability and statistics, including applications appropriate to the program name.
    • To apply mathematics through differential and integral calculus; sciences (defined as biological, chemical, or physical science); and
    • To apply engineering topics (including computing science) necessary to analyze and design complex electrical and electronic devices, software, and systems containing hardware and software components.
    • To apply discrete mathematics.
