Mission, objectives and learning outcomes
The mission of the Computer Science program is to provide students with the ability to integrate the theory and practice of computing in the representation, processing, and use of information while upholding tradition of the liberal arts education.
- Graduates shall be prepared for computer science related careers, locally and abroad, with a broad knowledge of the computing field, related principles, tools and theories, and also for pursuing graduate studies.
- Graduates shall be committed to life-long learning, be capable to work efficiently in teams, and possess effective communication skills.
- Graduates shall be aware of cultural, social, legal and ethical issues inherent in the discipline of computing.
Students will be able 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.Students shall be able to apply their computational and mathematical knowledge in order to solve computational problems.
