 ABET Accreditation - Computer Science Program

ABET Accreditation:

CAC-RGB-B-S.pngABET, incorporated as the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology, is an organization that accredits college and university programs in the disciplines of applied science, computing, engineering, and engineering technology.
 
During the academic Year 2009, a designated team from ABET visited KFUPM to evaluate its programs.  The team was composed of experts in academic and industrial areas.  The team conducted its visit to KFUPM and submitted its recommendation to ABET, based on the new criterion adopted by the Agency for programs outside USA, contrary to the system that was prevalent before the year 2007 when accreditation was granted as equivalent to ABET standards only.  During this visit, the Computer Science (CS) Program was among the accredited programs. 
 
Program Educational Objectives:
 
Computer Science graduates will

  1. Be successful in performing the duties of a computing-related position.
  2. Be successfully in completing an advanced degree program.
  3. Work as individuals with minimum guidance and as leaders or members in a team.
  4. Follow appropriate practices within a professional, legal, and ethical framework.
  5. Maintain currency through self-learning or other professional development.

Student outcomes:

The computer science program enables students to acquire, by the time of graduation, the following student outcomes:
 
    1. Analyze a complex computing problem and to apply principles of computing and other relevant disciplines to identify solutions.
    2. Design, implement and evaluate a computing-based solution to meet a given set of computing requirements in the context of the program's discipline.
    3. Communicate effectively in a variety of professional contexts.
    4. Recognize professional responsibilities and make informed judgments in computing practice based on legal and ethical principles.
    5. Function effectively as a member or leader of a team engaged in activities appropriate to the program's discipline.
    6. Apply computer science theory and software development fundamentals to produce computing-based solutions.
