Program Educational Objectives
To ensure the success of our graduates, we prepare them to achieve the following Program Educational Objectives within two to five years after graduation:
- Recognition as successful Air Force officers through demonstration of their ability to:
- Rapidly acquire required knowledge
- Lead others effectively
- Apply ethical and moral standards
- Improve unit performance by application of organizational skills
- Make sound decisions based on critical thinking
- Communicate effectively
- Selection for career training on, or ahead of, schedule, and for a progression of assignments of increasing responsibility
- Demonstrated ability to solve Air Force technical problems
- Success in continuing education
These objectives are assessed through Student Outcomes—the skills, knowledge and behaviors students should acquire before graduation.
Graduates of our program will have the ability to:
- Analyze a complex computing problem and to apply principles of computing and other relevant disciplines to identify solutions.
- Design, implement, and evaluate a computing-based solution to meet a given set of computing requirements in the context of the program’s discipline.
- Communicate effectively in a variety of professional contexts.
- Recognize professional responsibilities and make informed judgments in computing practice based on legal and ethical principles.
- Function effectively as a member or leader of a team engaged in activities appropriate to the program’s discipline.
- Apply computer science theory and software development fundamentals to produce computing-based solutions.
- Apply security principles and practices to maintain operations in the presence of risks and threats.
