1 UCSC Computer Engineering Objectives, Outcomes, & Feedback Tracy Larrabee Joel Ferguson Richard Hughey

2
2 ABET Criterion (abbreviated) Criterion 1. Students –The program must evaluate student performance, advise students regarding curricular and career matters, and monitor student’s progress to foster their success in achieving program outcomes, thereby enabling them as graduates to attain program objectives. –Transfer student policies…. Criterion 2. Program Educational Objectives –Each program for which an institution seeks accreditation or reaccreditation must have in place: –(a) published educational objectives that are consistent with the mission of the institution and these criteria –(b) a process that periodically documents and demonstrates that the objectives are based on the needs of the program's various constituencies –(c) an assessment and evaluation process that periodically documents and demonstrates the degree to which these objectives are attained.

3 Computer engineering focuses on the design, analysis and application of computers and on their applications as components of systems. The UCSC Department of Computer Engineering sustains and strengthens its teaching and research program to provide students with inspiration and quality education in the theory and practice of computer engineering. The UCSC CE Objective

4 ABET Criterion (abbreviated) Criterion 3. Program Outcomes –Engineering programs must demonstrate that their students attain the following outcomes…(next page)…. –Program outcomes are outcomes (a) through (k) plus any additional outcomes that may be articulated by the program. Program outcomes must foster attainment of program educational objectives. –There must be an assessment and evaluation process that periodically documents and demonstrates the degree to which the program outcomes are attained. Criterion 4. Continuous Improvement –Each program must show evidence of actions to improve the program… Criterion 5. Curriculum –…. Various credit and area requirements…. –Students must be prepared for engineering practice through a curriculum culminating in a major design experience based on the knowledge and skills acquired in earlier course work and incorporating appropriate engineering standards and multiple realistic constraints. Criterion 6. Faculty; Criterion 7. Facilities; Criterion 8. Support; Criterion 9. Program Criteria
