The program educational objectives of the Computer Science Program are related to the mission of Tuskegee University and the Andrew F. Brimmer College of Business and Information Science. The objectives were developed in part by Departmental faculty in consultation with alumni, advisory board, and industry partners. The Program Educational Objectives (PEOs) can be also found on the Tuskegee University website as it relates to the Mission of the Department of Computer Science.
The Computer Science undergraduate program at TU prepares its graduates to achieve the following career and professional goals:
Student outcomes are statements that describe what students are expected to know and be able to perform by the time of graduation. These statements relate to the skills, knowledge, and behaviors that students acquire in their matriculation through the program. The goal/objective of the program leading to the degree of Bachelor of Science in Computer Science (general option) is to provide students with a strong theoretical and practical background in the use of analytical thinking to design software solutions to real world problems. Computer science professional should also have the ability to evolve their knowledge and skills as new technologies are discovered and apply this knowledge with ethical consideration of the individual and collective impact. These same objectives are reflected in the ABET student outcomes, therefore; the Department of Computer Science has chosen to adopt the ABET student outcomes, which are listed as follow:
By the time of graduation, the students should have:
Annual Enrollment for Computer Science Undergraduate Program: 75.
2012 – 60
2013 – 68
