Accreditation

Computer Engineering Program
The program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET

The program is jointly administered by the Departments of Computer and Information Science and Engineering and Electrical and Computer Engineering , in accordance with the CISE-ECE CEN Governance Agreement.

Our Program Educational Objectives (revised 2012) are as follows:

A graduate of the University of Florida Computer Engineering Program, within three to five years, should:
1. Excel in a career utilizing their education in Computer Engineering;
2. Continue to enhance their knowledge;
3. Be effective in multidisciplinary and diverse professional environments;
4. Provide leadership and demonstrate professional integrity.


Objectives correspond to what we expect our graduates to accomplish within 3-8 years of graduation.
 

Our Program Outcomes are as follows:

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 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 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 engineering practice.


The Program Outcomes reflect the knowledge and skills we expect students to obtain by the time they complete the Computer Engineering program.

For current degree and enrollment data see http://www.eng.ufl.edu/education/undergraduate/accreditation/.

Faculty teaching the required courses are obligated to assess specific outcomes as shown in the Course Outcomes Mapping, which maps the Outcomes to assessments in the required courses.

Instructors must submit copies of graded work used for assessments, and a completed Course Committee Evaluation Form after meeting with their respective Course Committees for that course at the end of the term.
