Program Objectives

The LTU Computer Engineering Program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, 111 Market Place, Suite 1050, Baltimore, MD 21202-4012, Telephone: (410) 347-7700. An ABET accredited program must define and consistently work toward a full set of "objectives" and  "outcomes".

According to ABET accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, 111 Market Place, Suite 1050, Baltimore, MD 21202-4012, Telephone: (410) 347-7700, "program educational objectives are broad statements that describe the career and professional accomplishments that the program is preparing graduates to achieve." The LTU Computer Engineering Program educational objectives, formulated by the faculty in consultation with the ECE Industrial Advisory Board and other important program constituencies, are listed below.

Educational Objectives:

To graduate computer engineering students who

1. possess the problem-solving and critical judgment skills required of competent citizens in an increasingly technological society;
2. are able to undertake entry-level engineering projects in local industry;
3. are capable of growing in competence and responsibility;
4. are prepared to undertake graduate study.

According to ABET accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, 111 Market Place, Suite 1050, Baltimore, MD 21202-4012, Telephone: (410) 347-7700, "program outcomes are narrower statements that describe what students are expected to know and be able to do by the time of graduation. These relate to the skills, knowledge, and behaviors that students acquire in their matriculation through the program." The LTU Computer Engineering Program educational outcomes (revised Fall 2009) are as follows.

Educational Outcomes:
All computer engineering graduates must have:

(a) an ability to apply knowledge of mathematics, science, and engineering

(b) an ability to design and conduct experiments, as well as to analyze and interpret data

(c) an ability to design a computer system, component, or process to meet desired needs within realistic constraints such as economic, environmental, social, political, ethical, health and safety, manufacturability, and sustainability

(d) an ability to function on multidisciplinary teams

(e) an ability to identify, formulate, and solve computer engineering problems

(f) an understanding of professional and ethical responsibility

(g) an ability to communicate effectively

(h) the broad education necessary to understand the impact of engineering solutions in a global, economic, environmental, and societal context

(i) a recognition of the need for, and an ability to engage in life-long learning

(j) a knowledge of contemporary issues

(k) an ability to use the techniques, skills, and modern engineering tools necessary for computer engineering practice

(l) an ability to plan, design, simulate, fabricate, construct, and test circuit hardware

(m) an ability to plan, design, test, and debug systems consisting of both software and hardware
