Outcomes Assessment - Students are required to prepare and to maintain a portfolio of their technical and non-technical skills. This portfolio is evaluated for student preparation during the student’s curriculum planning process. Results of the evaluation are used to advise students of core strengths and weaknesses.

Transfer Credit Requirements

The degree program must include a minimum of 30 credits at the 300-level or above in
professional and technical courses earned at ISU in order to receive a B.S. in computer engineering.

These 30 credits must include Cpr E 491. Senior Design Project I and Professionalism, Cpr E 492 Senior Design Project II, and credits in the core professional curriculum and/or in technical electives. The

Electrical and Computer Engineering Department requires a grade of C or better for any transfer credit course that is applied to the degree program.

*These university requirements will add to the minimum credits of the program unless the university-approved courses are also approved by the department to meet other course requirements within the degree program. U.S. diversity and international perspectives courses may not be taken Pass/Not Pass, but are used to meet the general education electives.
