Proposed BS Degree in Computer Science and Engineering

Proposed BS Degree in Computer Science and Engineering

Proposed BS Degree in Computer Science and Engineering Department of Computer Science and Engineering Brief History Current Degrees: BS in Computer Science, CS BS in Computer and Information Engineering, CIE ABET Accreditation: CS is accredited by: - the ABET Computing Accreditation Commission (CAC) CIE is accredited by: - the ABET Engineering Accreditation Commission (EAC) Majors:

60 CIE students 177 CS students Issues with Current State Student issues: Students have to choose CS or CIE Ambiguity in CIE definition makes it difficult to choose Employer issues: Difficulty distinguishing CS and CIE Prefer well-rounded graduates having strong foundations both in the science and engineering of computing Departmental issues: Two separate BS degrees drain resources Unbalanced enrollment Not well aligned with research strengths Proposed Degree:

BS in Computer Science and Engineering (CSE) 128 credit hours (no change) Common core will satisfy ABET requirements Both CAC and EAC accreditation Four specialization areas: Computer and Network Systems Game and Simulations Intelligent Systems Software Systems Advantages of BS in CSE Better scheduling of courses - higher availability Consistent, broad background for all students World class depth in specialization areas leveraging research strengths Graduates better prepared for wider range of career paths and for graduate school

Stronger, more marketable degree Many other institutions have similar programs: - MIT, OSU, UCLA, UC Berkeley, UC Davis, UC Irvine, University of Connecticut, Georgia Tech, ... Outline of CSE Degree - 128 credits (tentative) 1. Math & Science Lower-Level Computer Science Core 25 credits 19 credits

2. 3. 4. 5. 6. University & College Core: English Humanities Social Sciences

Fine Arts Diversity Engineering 7. 12 credits Upper-Level CS Core Communication 27 credits 6-12 credits Specialization courses

18 credits 8. Lower-Level Comp. Engin. Core Electives 3-9 credits Capstone 6 credits Upper-Level Comp. Engin. Core

6 credits Envisioned Differences with Existing Degrees (Tentative) A new course CS282:Simulation Physics replaces Chemistry Removes internship as a requirement The following courses are considered for the core (not in CS degree): EE220: Circuits I PHYS181L:Physics II Lab is replaced by EE220:Circuits I Lab CPE400: Data Communications and Computer Networks The following courses are considered for the core (not in CIE degree): CS326: Programming Languages CS456: Automata CS477: Algorithms Courses NOT considered for the core (currently in the CIE degree): CPE406: Real-time Computer Systems CPE401: Computer Network Systems

Questions Do you agree that this new degree is in the best interest of current and future students and prospective employers? If you could transfer to the new degree program without any delays in graduation or loss of credits, would you do so? FAQ How is a specialization different from a minor? - A minor is aimed towards students of other departments. - A specialization is for CSE students It will appear on transcripts
