Learning Outcomes

Coming up with ingenious ideas for things that have never been done before and then figuring out the complex mathematics and technological mechanics required to make them happen is the ultimate challenge and passion of computer scientists.

Upon completion of their academic and internship requirements, graduates of Champlain College's undergraduate Computer Science & Innovation Program will:

  • Demonstrate, through the development of software projects, an ability to interpret and apply industry regulations, e.g. ACM, IEEE, ISO and etc.  In particular, able to prepare industry standard system development documentation.
  • Able to analyze, design, implement, test and verify system of varying complexity, varying user interfaces, multiple tiers and on multiple platforms including emerging technologies such as mobile-based and web-based applications to meet the desired goals.
  • Able to apply mathematical foundations and computing theorems in the modeling and design of systems in a way that demonstrates comprehension of the tradeoffs involved in design choices.
  • Apply principle of secure architecture as a basis of system design.
  • Function effectively, both independently and in a team.
  • Communicate effectively to a wide range of audiences in both written and spoken formats.
  • Analyze the local and global impact of computing on individual, organization and society.
  • Act according to the professional, ethical, legal, security and social issues and responsibilities.
  • Use course-based opportunities to understand innovation processes.  Apply those innovation processes to problems, integrating solutions from appropriate technologies.
  • Recognize the need for and an ability to engage in continuing professional development.
