Program Educational Objectives and Student Outcomes


We are proud to note that our Computer Engineering Program is ABET accredited.  In the Fall of 2018, total undergraduate enrollment in Computer Engineering was  227 students. In Spring of 2018, 32  B.S. degrees were awarded.  A full table is provided below.

As part of the accreditation process our faculty has decided on the following Program Educational Objectives:

Graduates of UCR’s BS degree program in Computer Engineering will meet high professional, ethical, and societal goals as demonstrated by:

  • success in post-graduation studies as evidenced by:
    • satisfaction with the decision to further their education
    • advanced degrees earned
    • professional visibility (e.g., publications, presentations, patents, inventions, awards)
  • professional responsibilities (e.g. professional mentoring, professional society membership and offices, reviewing and editorial work for professional journals) success in a chosen profession or vocation as evidenced by:
    • career satisfaction
    • promotions/raises (e.g. Management leadership positions or distinguished technical positions)
    • professional visibility (e.g., publications, presentations, patents, inventions, awards)
    • professional responsibilities (e.g. professional registration, professional mentoring, professional society membership and offices)
    • entrepreneurial activities
    • consulting activities
  • contributions to society as evidenced by:
    • Leadership roles
    • Public service
    • Mentoring / outreach activities
    • Volunteer service

Why does ABET accreditation matter to you?

Simply put, accreditation is value. Reaching into our public, private, and professional lives, accreditation is proof that a collegiate program has met certain standards necessary to produce graduates who are ready to enter their professions. Students who graduate from accredited programs have access to enhanced opportunities in employment; licensure, registration and certification; graduate education and global mobility.

You can visit www.abet.org to find out more about why ABET accreditation is so important to our program.

The ABET accreditation process also give us an opportunity to define Student Outcomes. Student Outcomes describe what students are expected to know and be able to do by the time of graduation. These relate to the knowledge, skills, and behaviors that students acquire as they progress through the program. The current student outcomes (listed below) where drafted in 2007 by our faculty, in consultation with students, employers, alumni and our advisory board. Because computer engineering is such a dynamic field we revisit these Student Outcomes once a year to make sure they are still relevant.

  1. an ability to apply knowledge of mathematics, science, and engineering
  2. an ability to design and conduct experiments, as well as to analyze and interpret data
  3. 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
  4. an ability to function on multidisciplinary teams
  5. an ability to identify, formulate, and solve engineering problems
  6. an understanding of professional and ethical responsibility
  7. an ability to communicate effectively
  8. the broad education necessary to understand the impact of engineering solutions in a global, economic, environmental, and societal context
  9. a recognition of the need for, and an ability to engage in life-long learning
  10. a knowledge of contemporary issues
  11. an ability to use the techniques, skills, and modern engineering tools necessary for engineering practice
