Abstract – We report results from the sixth survey of departments offering degree programs accredited by the Computing Accreditation Commission (CAC) of the AccreditationBoard for Engineering & Technology (ABET). The goal of this survey is to provide structured, up- to-date information in terms of demographics and statistics related to curricula, faculty, and students in accredited undergraduate computerscience degree programs. The tables listed in this paper, present summarized results from the survey collected in the winter of 2001-2002. Whenever relevant, data collected over the past six survey years are shown to identify apparent trends.
Games are currently available for teaching content related to different areas of computerscience, such as computer fundamentals (Sindre, Jahre, & Natvig 2009), programming (Muratet, Torguet, Viallet, & Jessel, 2011), and operating systems (Hill, Ray, Blair, & Carver, 2003). In particular, when considering the use of games in software engineering, there are several games that have been developed to support the teaching of different contents in this area. A systematic review on the subject of games used for software engineering education (Wangenheim & Shull 2009) found 12 different games, with computer-based simulations dominating the list of games being used for education. A breakdown of the studies by subject matter and learning domains reveals that most were developed to teach software project management knowledge.
The ComputerScience specific skills are combined cognitive and practical skills which demand that the cognitive ability is reflected in its practical application. The final year project (CS3072) is the critical assessment block for ensuring that individual learning has been drawn together in this holistic way. The specific requirement for theory (cognitive skills above) to translate into practical design and implementation skills may be assessed using in class tests based in the laboratory.
The City of Dreaming Spires, Oxford is famous the world over for its university, history and beautiful buildings. A bustling cosmopolitan place, its industries include motor manufacturing, publishing, and a large number of information technology and science-based businesses. Oxford has plenty of student-oriented pubs, restaurants and clubs, and for those who can be lured away by the bright lights, London and Birmingham are both little more than an hour away by public transport.
Public Health AccreditationBoardaccreditation has expedited the historically slow adoption of QI and PM by public health. Trailing other industries may actually foster opportunities to use the lessons they have learned for improved models within governmental public health. Among the most important lesson from others is to foster regular progress reporting so that resources can be appropriately allocated to the most crucial areas in need of QI.
A programming language is a set of commands, instructions, and other syntax use to create a software program. Languages that programmers use to write code are called "high-level languages." This code can be compiled into a "low-level language," which is recognized directly by the computer hardware.
Oregon local health departments are working hard towards National Public Health Accreditation and we are beginning to see results. As of March 2014, Marion County Public Health Services became the first accredited health department in Oregon, with Deschutes County Health Services becoming the second in June. Additionally,
During the visit, team members tour the facilities, conduct interviews (of faculty, support staff, and students), receive and review additional materials. At the end of the visit, a draft report is made available to the institution, which may respond to comments. A final report is presented to the annual meeting of the CEAB where the accreditation status of the programs is determined.
the digital computer is one of the most useful devices developed by mankind. Computerscience is the discipline concerned with the study of this device and how it can be used to process information and help solve complex problems. the computerscience curriculum is designed to allow the future computer specialist to obtain a broad education coupled with detailed knowledge in com- puter science sufficient to lay a foundation for professional competence in the computing field. non-specialists may also take computerscience courses that will acquaint them with computing capabilities applicable to their main field of endeavor.
Individual programs also have their own specialty-specific requirements. The ACGME Emergency Medicine Milestone Project 78 has been designed as part of the ACGME Next Accreditation System (NAS), with its increased focus on competency-based education. This system provides an architecture to assess resident development within their particular residency program. EM was one of the seven “early adopter” specialties that initiated milestones in July 2013 and one of the first five specialties to report resident progress against milestones to ACGME in December 2013.
CyberCIEGE aims to provide an Information Assurance (IA) teaching/learning laboratory in the form of an interactive, entertaining, commercial-grade, PC-based computer game. Each game plays as a single scenario that serves to teach a particular IA concept. However, more synergy can be gained if there is higher-order organization of these scenarios, such as by grouping around a set of desired concepts to be taught, or by increasing the complexity of the scenarios built around a common theme. This thesis aims to provide an instructor tool for this purpose.
This thesis analyzes current Army petroleum operations, identifies petroleum accountability/management procedures as the target domain for automation, and develops the respective software system requirements. From the software system requirements, a prototype for the Fuel Automated Subsystem is successfully developed using the Computer-Aided Prototyping System (CAPS) to illustrate the system’s viability.
3. In exceptional cases, high achieving students with only bachelor degrees will be admitted to the program. Each student, in addition to the Ph.D. program course requirements, must complete at least 15 semester hours of approved computerscience courses including CS 401, CS 420, CS 455, and two 500-level lecture courses, with a minimum accumulated GPA of 3.25/4.0 in those courses. If a specific course, or its equivalent, is already part of the student’s academic background, an alternate course will be submitted.
Given the speed of changes in the ComputerScience areas of knowledge, it is crucial to have a dynamic and up-to-date curriculum. During the tenure of our original program (started in Fall 2001), the department had been constantly adapting existing courses to new materials. New additional courses had been proposed
ngineering graduates’ requisite communication competencies and skills have been of interest to higher education accreditation agencies, academicians, researchers and the industry all over the world. The past three decades have witnessed an increasing number of engineering job requirements surveys publishing details of employability skills employers seek in their prospective engineers. Some such studies (Australian Council for Educational Research, 2001; Hill & Petty, 1995; Holden & Hamlett, 2007; Levenson, 2000; Patil & Codner, 2007; Prescott et al., 2012; etc.) have noted that employers stress that prospective engineers should entertain and demonstrate the following employability skills:
Pedestrian detection is an essential and challenging task in any intelligent video surveillance system. Despite the challenges, pedestrian detection remains an active area of research in computer vision and a number of approaches have grown steadily in recent years. The major challenge is the development of reliable on-board pedestrian detection systems. This paper proposes a pedestrian detection system that uses a part-based approach. The system is based on a two-stage classifier. Candidates are detected using a Haar cascade classifier and then part- verification is done using the cascade object detector. The Histogram of oriented gradients is found for the whole input and it is combined with the classification done using Support Vector Machine (SVM). The location of the human is detected using a background subtraction algorithm. The detected human are traced by determining the centroid point of the blob and keeping track of its location. The tracking provides the identity of the human location and the location that the human has traversed. The robustness of this system relies on the combination of a HOG and SVM classification.
