The BS in computer engineering program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET.

Annual program enrollment and degrees awarded information can be found here. The program educational objectives and program outcomes were approved by the CE faculty and the CE Industrial Advisory Board, and were shared with the program constituents. They are posted on this web site for reference. We welcome feedback from students, parents, alumni, employers, industrial affiliates and the general public.


RIT Computer Engineering Program Educational Objectives

The computer engineering department has established the following educational objectives for the computer engineering program, which describe the accomplishments of its graduates during the first few years following graduation:

  • Career Focus: Graduates successfully contribute to the professional workforce typically by applying their knowledge in various areas of computer engineering related to hardware, software and/or systems.

  • Graduate Study: Many graduates have pursued, are pursuing, or plan to pursue graduate study in computer engineering, related disciplines or business.

  • Independent Learning: Graduates are engaged in lifelong learning and stay current with advancements in their chosen field through independent learning and/or continuing education.

  • Professionalism: Graduates conduct themselves in a professional and ethical manner and function as responsible members of society.


Computer Engineering Program Outcomes

By the time of graduation from the program, RIT Computer Engineering graduates must be able to demonstrate:

  1. an ability to apply knowledge of mathematics, science, and engineering
  2. an ability to design and conduct experiments, as well as to analyze and interpret data
  3. an ability to design a system, component, or process to meet desired needs within realistic constraints such as economic, environmental, social, political, ethical, health and safety, manufacturability, and sustainability
  4. an ability to function on multidisciplinary teams
  5. an ability to identify, formulate, and solve engineering problems
  6. an understanding of professional and ethical responsibility
