ACCREDITATION HISTORY

Our Bachelor of Science - Theoretical Track has been accredited since 2003 (initial accreditation in 2003; re-accreditation in 2009).  We have our next re-accreditation visit scheduled for the fall of 2014 for the Bachelor of Science in Computer Science degree program.

We are also being evaluated for initial accreditation of the Bachelor of Science in Information Systems degree program in the fall of 2014.

PROGRAM EDUCATIONAL OBJECTIVES

  1. Contributing to society and/or economic development through the application of strong core competencies in the field. 
  2. Advancing in their careers and/or education by applying: 
    1. communication and collaboration skills, 
    2. problem solving abilities, 
    3. appreciation of, and commitment to, professional ethics, and 
    4. knowledge of computer science/information systems. 
  3. Successfully adapting to technical, societal, and environmental changes by building upon strong foundational competencies and continuing lifelong learning in computer science/information systems or related areas.
