Computer Science & Computer Information System
Upon completion of the programs offered in Computer Science and Computer Information Systems, students will be able to:
The Student Outcomes Assessment program instituted by the Department of Computer Science, Technology and Mathematics is geared towards achieving methods in which students are assessed quantitatively. To that end, student outcomes will be assessed based on measurable and quantifiable parameters.
The graduates with a Bachelor of Science degree in Computer Information Systems and an Associate of Applied Science degree in Computer Science will have the training, the knowledge, and the expertise in their respective fields of training. Graduates of these programs will acquire comparable skills and training and will compare favorably with other students completing similar programs.
Computer Information Systems and Computer Science professions are among the fastest changing and growing professions. Because of that, any student outcomes assessment method should be directed towards:
Exit examinations shall be given to all graduating students. The Exit examinations shall be prepared to reflect the major courses of the programs. Exit examinations of these programs shall be reviewed every two years to reflect new courses developed and offered.
Reports and surveys from employers for student interns will be collected and analyzed in fall and spring semesters. The survey shall be prepared to:
Data collected from the exit examinations and the internship survey will be analyzed by faculty to identify areas of strength and weakness, to plan changes and modifications to training and to assess the trends of the profession as a whole. Every two years, the Department may initiate new courses and/or drop courses reflecting changes in the profession.
