ABET/CAC Accreditation Status

continued growth
Continued Growth
  • Increasing demand for B.S. in Computer Science
  • Requests for providing undergraduate courses at University Center in Greenville
  • Growth in DPA MFA
  • Opportunity for expanding program with Charleston site
  • Growth in PhD programs
space needs
Space Needs
  • Southeast Precinct Master Plan was finalized in July 2013
  • current assignable square feet for SOC is 23,957
  • additional footage calculated for “right-sizing” was 33,522 (140% increase)
  • Campus Planner recommended a new building, but this must wait on a major donor
  • Not enough office, lab, or storage space
  • Have converted offices to labs, conference rooms to office suites, etc.
  • Teaching Assistants have no individual desks, and our four Graduate Teachers of Record must share one office

Our B.S. in Computer Science is accredited by the Computing Accreditation Commission (CAC) of the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET)

  • Typical period is six years
  • We were given a two-year period, which will be reviewed this summer
abet cac calendar of events
ABET/CAC Calendar of Events
  • July 2011 self-study and October 2011 visit
    • December 2011 – draft statement with “deficiency” regarding continuous improvement and concern over emphasis on Unix
    • our reply included a 3-semester Student Outcome review
  • July 2012 – two-year accreditation
    • interim report due in summer 2013
    • “weakness” regarding continuous improvement
  • June 2013 – interim report with Student Outcome review
    • October 2013 – draft statement, weakness remains
    • our reply included additional 2-semester Student Outcome review
  • July 2014 – ABET CAC summer meeting

review process
Review Process
  • Three-year cycle for review of PEOs, with input requested each cycle from faculty, graduates, students, and employers
  • Yearly SO review based on course measures
  • Input requested from employers on 3-year cycle
  • Undergraduate Affairs and Assessment Committees considered SO course measures and other inputs in early fall 2013
  • Assessment Committee recommended no changes in PEOs, SOs, or B.S. curriculum
  • October 2013 – faculty voted to reaffirm the PEOs and SOs, and to approve that no changes are seen as necessary in the B.S. curriculum based on the SO course measures
