Student Outcomes

The curriculum is structured with a total of 130 credits, including base knowledge, physical education and defense, and general and specialized disciplines. The course system consists of compulsory and electives courses. For compulsory courses students must register and study these courses, for elective courses students may choose one of the optional group courses

For the Computer Science program of DTU, FIT adopted the EAC (Engineering Accreditation Commission) criteria of Student Outcomes (SOs) as narrower statements that describe what knowledge students are expected to possess and what skills they are expected to master by the time of graduation from the program. Student outcomes are outcomes (a) through (k) plus any additional outcomes that may be articulated by the program.

(a) an ability to apply knowledge of mathematics, science, and engineering

(b) an ability to design and conduct experiments, as well as to analyze and interpret data

(c) 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

(d) an ability to function on multidisciplinary teams

(e) an ability to identify, formulate, and solve engineering problems

(f) an understanding of professional and ethical responsibility

(g) an ability to communicate effectively

(h) the broad education necessary to understand the impact of engineering solutions in a global, economic, environmental, and societal context

(i) a recognition of the need for, and an ability to engage in life-long learning

(j) a knowledge of contemporary issues

  (k) an ability to use the techniques, skills, and modern engineering tools necessary for engineering practice.
