  1. Be able to apply knowledge of computing and mathematics appropriate to the discipline
  2. Be able to analyze a problem, and identify and define the computing requirements appropriate to its solution
  3. Be able to design, implement, and evaluate a computer‐based system, process, component, or program to meet desired needs
  4. Be able to function effectively on teams to accomplish a common goal
  5. Understand professional, ethical, legal, security and social issues and responsibilities
  6. Be able to communicate effectively with a range of audiences
  7. Be able to analyze the local and global impact of computing on individuals, organizations, and society
  8. Recognize the need for and an ability to engage in continuing professional development
  9. Be able to use current techniques, skills, and tools necessary for computing practice
  1. Be able to apply mathematical foundations, algorithmic principles, and computer science theory in the modeling and design of computer‐based systems in a way that demonstrates comprehension of the tradeoffs involved in design choices
  2. Be able to apply design and development principles in the construction of software systems of varying complexity
