SDSU Computer Science Program Mission Statement
The mission of the SDSU CS undergraduate program is to provide students a broad background in computer science theory and state-of-the-practice experiences that will enable them to pursue high technology careers and higher-level education goals. Students are expected to gain analytical and problem-solving skills, software design and programming skills, as well as effective writing and presentation skills needed to work in a collaborative computer science environment.
SDSU Computer Science Program Educational Objectives
Within a few years of graduation, SDSU Computer Science Bachelor of Science Degree graduates are expected to effectively integrate and apply in one or more fields
- Key principles and practices of computing
- Writing and verbal communication skills to effectively interact with clients, management, and team members
With these skills, students graduating with a B. S. in Computer Science will have the requisite background to support future goals with respect to employability and graduate school:
- Employability: Graduates will be immediately employable in high-technology companies that utilize their computing education
- Graduate School Preparedness: Strong graduates will be prepared to enter graduate programs in Computer Science.
SDSU Computer Science Student Outcomes
Upon successful completion of the SDSU Computer Science Bachelor of Science Degree, students will be able to demonstrate the ability to:
- Apply knowledge of computing and mathematics appropriate to the discipline
- Analyze a problem, and identify and define the computing requirements appropriate to its solution
- Design, implement, and evaluate a computer-based system, process, component, or program to meet desired needs
- Function effectively on teams to accomplish a common goal
- Honor professional, ethical, legal, security and social issues and responsibilities
- Communicate effectively with a range of audiences
- Analyze the local and global impact of computing on individuals, organizations, and society
- Engage in continuing professional development
- Use current techniques, skills, and tools necessary for computing practice.
- Apply mathematical foundations, algorithmic principles, and computer science theory in the modeling and design of computer-based systems in a way that demonstrates comprehension of the tradeoffs involved in design choices.
- Apply design and development principles in the construction of software systems of varying complexity.
