ABET Evaluation Fall 2013 BS in CS is an ABET-accredited program (BA in CS is not) Preliminary results of the evaluation visit: • No program deficiencies found • Weaknesses with respect to: • Formulation of the Program Educational Objectives and required periodic review of the PEOs • Need a systematic periodic review and continuous improvement cycle of the Student Outcomes • Faculty numbers are low, in particular Panama city • These contribute to the concern with Criterion I: Objectives and Assessment
