The educational objective of the Bachelor of Science in Computer Science (BSCS) program in the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science (EECS) at Syracuse University are: - To prepare well-rounded graduates who are known by their professional competence, innovative thinking, ability to work individually and in diverse teams, leadership abilities, communication skills, and integrity. - To prepare well-rounded graduates who engage in applying the knowledge acquired in their major, combined with their problem solving abilities, to produce feasible solutions to problems, in a timely manner, which are deemed important in industry, government, or academia. - To prepare well-rounded graduates who exhibit the intellectual flexibility necessary to solve new problems in innovative ways by integrating multiple viewpoints from several disciplines in search of the best possible solutions. This program is accredited by the Computing Accreditation Commission of ABET. The programs in computer science prepare professionals who will adapt to constant changes in technology and who will be leaders in developing the new technologies of the Information Age. The multidisciplinary nature of the curricula offers students a high degree of flexibility to design a program of study tailored to their interests and professional aspirations. Computer science focuses on programming, algorithms, large-scale software development, and the principles of computing that underlie these areas. Syracuse’s program weaves together an emphasis on fundamental principles with new developments in computing, producing graduates prepared either to begin careers or to pursue advanced studies in the field. Graduates of the Syracuse University bachelor of science in computer science program achieve the following student outcomes: - Ability to apply knowledge of computing and mathematics appropriate to the program’s student outcomes and to the discipline. In particular, students should be able to apply this knowledge in a way that demonstrates comprehension of the tradeoffs involved in modeling, design and development of software systems of various scales and complexity. - Ability to analyze a problem, and identify and define computing requirements appropriate to its solution. - Ability to design, implement, and evaluate a computer-based system, process, component, or program to meet desired needs. - Ability to function effectively on teams to accomplish common goals.
