The CSE department is committed to excellence in education in Computer Science and Engineering, and its fundamental applications. For that, our programs should always be in alignment to the modern trends and standards of the discipline and with the best recognized practices to produce successful professionals in the discipline. To achieve that goal to our best, we have established a continuous assessment and improvement process that periodically measures the level of achievement attained by individual courses as well as by the curricula as a whole along a set of Student Learning Outcomes.
Here we present the assessment plan for the two undergraduate programs that are hosted by the CSE department. These are the BS in Computer Science and Engineering, and the BS in Software Engineering. This continuous assessment and improvement process is fundamental for the following reasons:
- The Computer Science discipline is a rapidly evolving discipline, not only in deriving new knowledge but also in the impact that the discipline has in modern society.
- We must always guarantee our constituents that our alumni are capable of fulfilling their professional duties in a satisfactory and reliable manner. And in addition, that they will be able to evolve in knowledge as the discipline evolves to be able to continue their contribution to the growth of our society through the practice of the profession.
