About Undergraduate Program



Educational Objectives

  • Technical knowledge

    Graduates of our program will have sound theoretical and practical foundations in Computer Science that will allow them to secure employment, or pursue graduate studies in an area related to Computer Science.

    We expect that our graduates will be recognized as being technically competent by their employers or advisers. Specifically, we expect that in one year our graduates will be employed or enrolled in a graduate program in an area related to Computer Science. In five years we expect our graduates will sustain employment or complete a graduate degree in an area related to Computer Science. In ten years we expect our graduates to advance in their selected career path obtaining management positions or employment in a university or research institution.

  • Problem Solving

    Graduates of our program will have intellectual curiosity, creative ability, capacity for independent study and understanding of the importance of lifelong learning.

    We expect that our graduates will be recognized as creative, smart and with initiative by their employers or advisers. Specifically, we expect our graduates to be team leaders in the development of professional software or be active researchers in areas related to Computer Science.

  • Lifelong learning

    Graduates of our program will be aware of and expose to current trends in research, techniques, and tools related to Computer Science as a manifestation of lifelong learning.

    We expect that our graduates will be recognized to be current in areas related to Computer Science by their employers or advisers. Specifically, we expect our graduates to advance in their selected career path in areas of Computer Science and that they participate in workshops or conferences, register in continuing education or obtain certifications.

  • Communication skills

    Graduates of our program will have strong analytical and communication skills, and will have the ability to effectively participate in a collaborative environment.

    We expect that our graduates will be recognized to have strong communication skills by their employers or advisers. Specifically, we expect that they successfully develop technical reports, conferences articles or journal articles and that they successfully give technical and non–technical presentations.
