Student Outcomes

In order to achieve the program educational objectives, we have defined a set of student learning outcomes (or more simply, student outcomes) that list the skills our students will possess upon completion of the Information Technology program. At the time of their graduation, IT students will have: 

a. an ability to select and apply knowledge of computing and mathematics appropriate to the discipline. Specifically, an ability to use and apply current technical concepts and practices in the core information technologies. [IT-j]

b. an ability to analyze a problem, and identify and define the computing requirements appropriate to its solution.

c. an ability to design, implement, and evaluate a computer-based system, process, component, or program to meet desired needs. And, an ability to identify and analyze user needs and take them into account in the selection, creation, evaluation and administration of computer-based systems. [IT-k]

d. an ability to function effectively as a member or leader on technical teams to accomplish a common goal.

e. an understanding of professional, ethical, legal, security and social issues and responsibilities including a respect for diversity.

f. an ability to communicate effectively with a range of audiences using a range of modalities including written, oral and graphical.

g. an ability to analyze the local and global impact of computing on individuals, organizations, and society.

h. a recognition and understanding of the need for and an ability to engage in self-directed continuing professional development.

i. an ability to select and apply current techniques, skills, and tools necessary for computing practice. And an ability to effectively integrate IT-based solutions into the user environment. [IT-l]

j. an understanding of best practices and their application. [IT-m]

k. an ability to assist in the creation of an effective project plan. [IT-n]

As students take the various courses that are part of the IT program of study, they will see course syllabi that list a subset of the student outcomes listed above. Each course contributes to some of the student outcomes. Collectively, the courses assure that IT students achieve all of the student outcomes.
