Web-Based Course Outcome Assessment Experience in Computer Engineering Technology
In November 2004 an innovative undergraduate Computer Engineering Technology program based on TAC of ABET program assessment criteria was granted licensure by the State Department of Higher Education. The University has considerable experience with accreditation and associated assessment activities, most recently reporting on an “In- common Methodology for Objective- and Outcome-based Programs Assessment” (Lema, L.F., Baumann, P.F., and Prusak, Z., ASEE 2005 Annual Conference) across three engineering technology programs. This study reports an assessment component within the Computer Engineering Technology program in accordance with ABET accreditation criteria. The implementation process was conducted in an undergraduate course in the program. The initial phase involves identification of course goals, and based on these goals, the measurable learning outcomes are formulated. Using web-based methodology and course management tools such as WebCT or Vista, the learning outcomes are measured in the form of pre- and post-course survey data from students. Data can be imported to data management tools such as Excel for analysis and evaluation. This study uses computer programs as tools to facilitate data collection and data analysis, making the data intensive portion of the assessment and evaluation process an easier endeavor. Applicability towards the assessment efforts of other engineering technology programs is also addressed.
Bachelor of Science in Computer Engineering Technology
The mission of the computer engineering technology program is to provide graduates with the academic and practical knowledge that is widely accepted in the field of computer engineering technology. This is done by encouraging students to incorporate hardware and software computer systems in solving science, engineering, technology, and manufacturing problems.
The computer engineering technology degree program offers students a balanced foundation and a wide choice of career paths. This program will also be a solid and a very marketable program of professional training to fit in many of the high paid, high demand positions such as system administrators, network administrators, system designers, quality control engineers, and software developers. Graduates can also find positions as information technologists, lab technicians, system maintenance personnel, system testers,
