Computer engineering department self assessment and accreditation

ABET EC 2K ACCREDITATION

  • Cost of education (mid 90’s): More than 15% of median family income

  • Industry mutation: Engineers should be educated in a way to facilitate their adaptation to important industry mutation (Bio, Nano, Health, Comp. Technology, change in products, etc)

    (not to be tight to one original area of formation)

  • Demographic issues, population aging, etc.

  • Shift in Engineering Education

    • Teacher-Centered Focus

      • Traditional classroom

      • Distance learning using synchronous video-conferencing

  • Learner-Centered Focus (outcome-based)

    • Interactive multimedia

    • Educational solutions designed by multi-skilled academic teams

    • Asynchronous learning (any time and anywhere)

  • Since 1995 a shift in ABET criterion: “A meaningful, major engineering design experience …”

  • Pilote ABET visits in 96-98, required to meet EC 2K by 2001


  • Computer engineering department self assessment and accreditation

    ACCREDITATION ACCREDITATION

    • Fall 2007, all Engineering program at KFUPM are to seek ABET 2K accreditation

    • The COE is to preparing the writing of the Self-Study Report (SSR) for the according the ABET EC 2K criterion (COE ABET Committee)

    • EC 2K refers to an Outcome-Based Instruction Standard

    • The COE department is still using conventional Teacher-Centered (Lecture-Exam) instruction!

      • Appears to be contradictory

      • First ABET visit is based on the minimum condition rule: a convincing self-assessment system (in-place) that is capable of producing improvements according the EC 2K standards

      • EC 2K quantifies education using measurable outcomes ranging from the acquisition of knowledge, the learning of skills, and the development of some attitude or behavior

      • The self-study report is to document a program having consistent educational objectives and outcomes, carry out direct (student work) and indirect (surveys, interviews, etc.) self-assessment, and feedback the results in terms of program improvements.

    SELF-STUDY REPORT PLAN ACCREDITATION

    • Self-Study Report progress in T061 (Fall 2006)

      • Data-independent (Term 061)

        • Set up the objectives (PEO-061), outcomes (PO-051-2), course outcomes (051 and 061), course evaluation (051), surveys, evaluation forms, etc.

        • Forming the Advisory board, Alumni and Employer DB, etc.

        • Write-up of SSR sections: background, student, objectives, outcomes, faculty, facility, curriculum, support, and program criteria

        • Workshop on “outcome-based instruction” attended by all COE faculty

          • Addressing course outcomes in the classroom, exams, etc.

          • Set up teamwork and engineering practices in some COE labs

        • Developed ABET Web with Guidelines and selected papers for faculty and students

      • Data-dependent (Term 062)

        • Assessment committee (AC): Control the direct and indirect assessment processes, data collection and presentation, and delivery to the undergraduate committee

        • Undergraduate Committee (UC): analysis of assessment data, carry out revision of objectives, outcomes, curriculum, etc.

        • UC decided to use a set of Rubrics to assess the program outcomes.

        • Need to include assessment data and curricular actions in the final draft of SSR


    Institution vision
    INSTITUTION VISION ACCREDITATION

    • KFUPM vision

      To be a vibrant multicultural University of international repute focuse on quality education and innovative research that prepares professionals and entrepreneurs to lead social, economic and technical development in the region.

    • CCSE main objectives:

      • To provide the skilled manpower needed for the fulfillment of the country's development plans. In particular: information & computer scientists, computer engineers, and systems engineers.

      • To prepare students for graduate work and research in their field of specialization.

      • To provide a link through which computer technologies and their applications could be transferred to the country.

      • To provide the country, through research and graduate studies, with skills, ideas, and innovations in certain areas of advanced technologies.


    Educational objectives
    EDUCATIONAL OBJECTIVES ACCREDITATION

    • The objectives of the COE program

      To produce computer engineering graduates prepared to:

      • Practice their profession with confidence and global competitiveness and make intellectual contributions to it;

      • Pursue a life-long career of personal and professional growth with superior work ethics and character and

      • Pursue advanced study and research at the graduate level.


    Review of peos
    REVIEW OF PEOs ACCREDITATION

    Review process of the COE PEOs:

    • Conducted every four years (next in 2011-2012)

    • PEO Assessment Tools

      • Graduating student Surveys (semester)

      • Employer (surveys (4y) and Co-op (each student))

      • Alumni surveys (2y)

      • Advisory board input and surveys ((1y)

        Mechanism:

  • Assessment Committee to coordinate the data collection and scheduling

  • Uundergraduate Committee to measure degree of success in meeting program outcomes and report curricular actions to department council. Also after 4 years compile a major revision if necessary.
