Three to five years after graduation Computer Science and Engineering doctoral graduates should be: Contributing to their communities and society with innovations in computer research and an understanding of contemporary technological issues. Advancing in their careers through their research in computer science and engineering, by communicating and working effectively as team members and by interacting responsibly with others in society. Continuing their professional development through ongoing research. May 25, 2012 Student Outcomes for the PhD At the time of graduation a Doctor of Philosophy student should be able to:

Perform research involving computer systems for the solution of problems. Formulate problems in their research area that are challenging and of wide interest in the area. Communicate effectively about their research in computer science and engineering. Actively contribute to the research in their area. Achieve the highest level of expertise in their chosen area of research. May 25, 2012 Learning Outcome 4. At the time of graduation a Doctor of Philosophy student should be able to actively contribute to the research in their area. Criteria Methods Results Use of Results

May 25, 2012 11 Criteria At the time of graduation the number of publications accepted, under review in journals and conferences should satisfy: accepted >=1, accepted + under review >=3. The percentage of students satisfying this should be greater than 80%. In the Exit interview, (continued next slide) May 25, 2012 12 the Exit interview, which is conducted after . In the dissertation is submitted, the percentage

of students that rate their ability to actively contribute research as excellent or very good should be greater than 80%. The department will also measure the time for a full-time student to progress to the milestones: qualifying exam, comprehensive exam and defense of dissertation. May 25, 2012 13 Methods: After the defense The Graduate Secretary will compile a list of publications and verify this list with the graduate. The Graduate Secretary will enter the data into a spreadsheet and provide it to the Graduate Director and the other members of the Graduate committee. May 25, 2012
