1) Below are your program student learning outcomes (SLOs). Please update as needed.

All graduates of the Computerl Engineering Program are expected to have:

  1. Knowledge of probability and statistics, including examples relevant to Computer Engineering (program criteria). Knowledge of mathematics through differential and integral calculus, basic sciences, and engineering sciences necessary to analyze and design complex devices and systems containing hardware and software. Knowledge of advanced mathematics, including differential equations, linear algebra, and complex variables (program criteria).
  2. Demonstrated an ability to design and conduct experiments, as well as to interpret data.

    Demonstrated an ability to design a system or component that meets desired

    needs within realistic constraints such as economic, environmental, social,

    political, ethical, health and safety, manufacturability, and sustainability.

  4. Demonstrated an ability to function in a multi-disciplinary team.
  5. Demonstrated an ability to identify, formulate and solve electrical engineering problems.
  6. Understanding of professional and ethical responsibility.
  7. Demonstrated an ability to communicate effectively (written and oral).
  8. Demonstrated an understanding of the impact of engineering solutions in a global, economic, environmental, and societal context.
  9. Recognition of the need for life-long learning.
  10. Demonstrated a knowledge of contemporary issues.
  11. Demonstrated an ability to use the techniques, skills, and modern tools necessary for engineering practice. 
  12. Knowledge of discrete mathematics.

4) For your program, the percentage of courses that have course SLOs explicitly stated on the syllabus, a website, or other publicly available document is as follows. Please update as needed.


5) For the period June 1, 2010 to September 30, 2011: State the assessment question(s) and/or assessment goals. Include the SLOs that were targeted, if applicable.

Computer Engineering is a new program that just started in 2010.  We did not get significant student in Computer Engineering until Fall, 2011.  Starting this year we will begin assessing SLOs.

6) State the type(s) of evidence gathered to answer the assessment question and/or meet the assessment goals that were given in Question #5.

See question #5.

7) State how many persons submitted evidence that was evaluated. If applicable, please include the sampling technique used.

See questions #5.

8) Who interpreted or analyzed the evidence that was collected? (Check all that apply.)

Course instructor(s)
Faculty committee
Ad hoc faculty group
Department chairperson
Persons or organization outside the university
Faculty advisor
Advisors (in student support services)
Students (graduate or undergraduate)
Other: See question #5.

9) How did they evaluate, analyze, or interpret the evidence? (Check all that apply.)

Used a rubric or scoring guide
Scored exams/tests/quizzes
Used professional judgment (no rubric or scoring guide used)
Compiled survey results
Used qualitative methods on interview, focus group, open-ended response data
External organization/person analyzed data (e.g., external organization administered and scored the nursing licensing exam)
Other: See question #5

10) For the assessment question(s) and/or assessment goal(s) stated in Question #5:
Summarize the actual results.

see question #5

11) State how the program used the results or plans to use the results. Please be specific.

Assessments will be from Industry Advisory Board, Student Advisory Board,  performance rubrics in classes, and evaluation of senior design projects.  Assessments will be similar to Electrical Engineering program.

12) Beyond the results, were there additional conclusions or discoveries?
This can include insights about assessment procedures, teaching and learning, program aspects and so on.

Computer engineering is a new program.

13) Other important information.
Please note: If the program did not engage in assessment, please explain. If the program created an assessment plan for next year, please give an overview.

Computer Engineering is a new program.  Students are needed before we can assess program.  Starting this year we have new students (40 this semester) and we will begin to start assessing SLOs.
