Computer Engineering Undergraduate Program Accreditation 

The Computer Engineering undergraduate program offered by the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at The University of Akron is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET,

Program Educational Objectives

The educational objectives for the Computer Engineering Program are that, within a few years after graduation, our Computer Engineering graduates: 

  • Achieve competitively compensated computer engineering positions or related professional positions, or entry into programs of advanced study

  • Prove to be highly competent and productive in computer engineering or related practice

  • Continue to develop professionally through both practical experience and a lifelong commitment to learning

  • Exhibit high standards of ethical conduct, societal responsibility, and professionalism in engineering

Student Outcomes

The Computer Engineering program has specified these student outcomes to be achieved by the time of graduation:

  • (1) an ability to identify, formulate, and solve complex engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science, and mathematics

  • (2) an ability to apply engineering design to produce solutions that meet specified needs with consideration of public health, safety, and welfare, as well as global, cultural, social, environmental, and economic factors

  • (3) an ability to communicate effectively with a range of audience

  • (4) an ability to recognize ethical and professional responsibilities in engineering situations and make informed judgments, which must consider the impact of engineering solutions in global, economic, environmental, and societal contexts

  • (5) an ability to function effectively on a team whose members together provide leadership, create a collaborative and inclusive environment, establish goals, plan tasks, and meet objective

  • (6) an ability to develop and conduct appropriate experimentation, analyze and interpret data, and use engineering judgment to draw conclusions

  • (7) an ability to acquire and apply new knowledge as needed, using appropriate learning strategies
