The Department of Computer Science and Engineering at the University of Puerto Rico has institutionalized a continuous improvement plan to maximize added value to our constituencies. Program constituencies are individuals, groups, or institutions that directly contribute and benefit from our academic programs. Our continuous improvement process periodically assesses the level of satisfactions among these constituencies with regard to the educational objectives established for our academic programs.
- Students – Our programs must expose our students to the forefront knowledge in the area of computing; and so they conform a critical component of our assessment processes.
- Alumni – Students who have completed our courses of study during the previous 2-5 years are most likely to be employed at entry level positions and are better prepared to assess if the program has adequately prepared them to effectively practice their profession.
- Employers – Employers’ satisfaction drives employment opportunities for our students. Members of advisory boards and campus recruiters represent employers. Since recruiters interview students from other institutions, they can provide valuable feedback about how well our students rank both internally and externally. Supervisors of Coop students can provide valuable insight on how well our alumnus perform compared to their peer interns from other institutions.
- The People of Puerto Rico – The University of Puerto Rico was created by the Legislative Assembly to provide higher education opportunities for its citizens and to promote the social and economic development of the Island.
