Accreditation of the Computer Engineering Programs

The Department of Computer Science and Engineering is part of the J.B. Speed School of Engineering. The Speed School comes under the University of Louisville. Our Department offers Bachelor of Science (B.S.) and Master of Engineering (M. Eng.) degrees. The baccalaureate program in Computer Science and Engineering consists of a four-calendar-year integrated sequence of academic course work and cooperative experience.

The Bachelor of Science and the Master of Engineering programs are accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, www.abet.org.

UofL’s Bachelor of Science degree program in Computer Science and Engineering is also accredited by the Computing Accreditation Commission of ABET, www.abet.org.

Mission Statement

The Mission of the CSE Department is to prepare students to enter the computer science and engineering profession or to pursue advanced graduate study with specialty in the areas of Computer Science and Engineering.

Objectives and Outcomes

Bachelor of Science Program in Computer Science and Engineering

BS Program Educational Objectives

  1. Succeed as Computer Science and Engineering professionals in industrial, academic, or government entities, or are successful in pursuing professional/graduate studies.
  2. Engage in life-long learning necessary for their professional development.
  3. Are involved in their communities in addressing social, ethical, and professional issues in contemporary Computer Science and Engineering practice.

BS CSE Student Outcomes

Graduates of the program will have an ability to:

  1. Identify, formulate, and solve complex engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science, and mathematics.
  2. Analyze a complex computing problem and to apply principles of computing and other relevant disciplines to identify solutions.
  3. Apply engineering design to produce solutions that meet specified needs with consideration of public health, safety, and welfare, as well as global, cultural, social, environmental, and economic factors.
  4. Design, implement, and evaluate a computing-based solution to meet a given set of computing requirements in the context of the program’s discipline.
  5. Communicate effectively with a range of audiences in a variety of professional contexts.
  6. Recognize ethical, legal, and professional responsibilities in engineering situations and computing practice and make informed judgments, which must consider the impact of engineering solutions in global, economic, environmental, and societal contexts.
  7. Function effectively on a team whose members together provide leadership, create a collaborative and inclusive environment, establish goals, plan tasks, and meet objectives.
  8. Develop and conduct appropriate experimentation, analyze and interpret data, and use engineering judgment to draw conclusions.
  9. Apply computer science theory and software development fundamentals to produce computing-based solutions.
  10. Acquire and apply new knowledge as needed, using appropriate learning strategies.
