Accreditation Information and Graduation Data

The Bachelor of Science in Computer Engineering degree offered jointly by the Department of Computer Science and the Charles L. Brown Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET.

Graduation data for these degree programs is included on this page that provides such information for all SEAS undergraduate degrees.

Each degree program has defined Program Educational Objectives (PEOs), which are broad statements that describe the career and professional accomplishments that the program is preparing graduates to achieve. In addition, each program has defined Student Outcomes (SOs), which are are narrower statements that describe what students are expected to know and be able to do by the time of graduation. These relate to the skills, knowledge, and behaviors that students acquire in their matriculation through the program.
