Outcomes & Objectives
Program Objectives - Graduate & Undergraduate
ABET describes program objectives as: "broad statements that describe what graduates are expected to attain within a few years after graduation." ABET further states that these objectives are "based on the needs of the program's constituencies." The Computer Science department developed our program outcomes through a meeting with the Industry-Alumni Committee in April of 2011. These 4 objectives apply to all concentrations in the BS in Computer Science, including the ABET accredited Software Development concentration.
Objective 1: Our graduates remain current in their chosen careers through lifelong learning.
Examples of activities/behaviors that satisfy this objective: Graduate School, Certifications, Seminars, Workshops, Continuing Education Courses, Research Activities.
Objective 2: Our graduates successfully use and apply new technologies.
Objective 3: Our graduates successfully advance in their careers through increasing levels of responsibility and technical complexity.
Objective 4: Our graduates are capable of communicating effectively with technical and non-technical groups/individuals.
ABET describes program outcomes as: "what students are expected to know and be able to do by the time of graduation. These relate to the knowledge, skills, and behaviors that students acquire as they progress through the program." The faculty at LSUS have adopted the following Program Outcomes.
ABET Accredited BS in Computer Science (Software Development):
All other concentrations in the BS in Computer Science (network security, information systems, animation & visual effects):
