Below are components of our program which are designed to ensure student success, including the mission of the campus and department, Program Educational Objectives we hope for all students to attain, and Student Outcomes assessed and evaluated within majors programs as part of a continuous improvement process.

Mission Statements

SUNY Oswego: SUNY Oswego contributes to the common good by lighting the path to wisdom and empowering every person in the college community to pursue a meaningful life as a productive, responsible member of society.

Computer Science Department: The Mission of the Computer Science Department at Oswego is to provide students with a learning environment which will nurture their growth into competent software developers, computer scientists, and information system designers. We strive to maintain modern computing resources, modern software systems and languages, and a diverse faculty capable of engaging students in meaningful learning activities steeped in classic computer science yet applicable to contemporary problems associated with computer and information science.

Program Educational Objectives

The above missions have been used in combination with input from faculty, current and graduated students of the program, employers hiring our alumni, and the SUNY Oswego Engineering Advisory Board to produce a set of Program Educational Objectives, consistent across the Oswego Engineering Core. These Objectives undergo periodic review to ensure continued consistency with the institutional mission, the program constituents’ needs, and ABET criteria. 

Program Educational Objectives

We aim to prepare students for successful careers in Engineering or computing-related professional disciplines or the successful pursuit of graduate studies with contributions to the betterment of society and the global community as evidenced by:
