Accreditation

The Bachelor of Science (B.S.) degree programs in electrical engineering and computer engineering at the University of Idaho are accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET (http://www.abet.org).


Computer Engineering Educational Objectives

  1. Learn and Integrate. Graduates of the program will demonstrate proficiency in identifying, formulating and solving engineering problems by applying their knowledge and understanding of mathematics, science and engineering. (a) (e)
  2. Think and Create. Graduates of the program will demonstrate proficiency in analysis and design of hardware and software based systems using modern methods and tools to meet specified requirements while considering real-world constraints. (b) (c) (l)
  3. Communicate. Graduates of the program will demonstrate an ability to communicate effectively through oral and written media to interdisciplinary groups, including team members, constituents and the public. (d) (g) (k)
  4. Clarify Purpose and Perspective. They will engage in lifelong learning activities to further develop their technical and professional capabilities and skills. (f) (i)
  5. Practice citizenship. Graduates of the program demonstrate knowledge of professional and ethical responsibility. They will consider the societal impact of their work and/or add value to the profession and to society through active engagement in professional societies, community services and outreach to future generations of engineers.
