1 Attachment I South Dakota Board of Regents New Graduate Degree Program University: South Dakota State University Proposed Graduate Program: M.S. in Computer Science Degree: M.S. Existing or New Degree(s): New Intended Date of Implementation (term): Fall 2011 Proposed CIP code: University Department Electrical Engineering & Computer Science University Division College of Engineering University Approval To the Board and the Executive Director: I certify that I have read this proposal, that I believe it to be accurate, and that it has been evaluated and approved as provided by university policy. President of the University Date After approval by the President, a signed copy of the proposal should be transmitted to the Executive Director. Only after Executive Director review should the proposal be posted on the university web site and the Board staff and the other universities notified of the URL. 1. What are the purposes of the proposed program? South Dakota State University requests authorization to offer an M.S. in Computer Science with no new State resources requested. The new degree would replace an emphasis with the SDSU M.S. in Engineering. A separate M.S. in Computer Science degree will make SDSU more attractive to prospective graduate students. The M.S. in Computer Science is widely recognized by employers and Ph.D. programs. There are no additional costs as a result of this new program. The primary purposes of the proposed program are: (1) to more effectively recruit and retain high quality South Dakota students interested in pursuing graduate education and research-focused careers in computer science; (2) to provide a more recognized graduate degree than the currently available generic MS in Engineering program, which is not recognized by many prospective students and faculty as a research-focused degree; (3) to better support South Dakota s economic growth in computer hardware and software systems; (4) to support the South Dakota Workforce 2025 Initiative by offering programs of key strategic importance for the state s workforce development.

2 Expected Demand for Graduates in South Dakota A recent study conducted by SDSU revealed that 59% of its computer science graduates (both BS and MS) who completed degrees in the last five years now live or work in South Dakota. The table below provides a summary of computer science employment needs in South Dakota from the South Dakota Department of Labor and Regulation. Three of the occupations (denoted **) are highlighted by the South Dakota Department of Labor and Regulation as being among the fastest-growing occupations in South Dakota, with strong job prospects over the next five years.

3 Related Programs in the System SDSU has permitted students to complete the M.S. in Engineering with an emphasis in Computer Science since USD M.S. in Computer Science South Dakota School of Mines & Technology: M.S. in Robotics and Intelligent Autonomous Systems (approved in April 2009) M.S. in Computer Science, placed on inactive status (March 2010) Programs in Adjacent States M.S. in Computer Science degrees in the adjacent states are provided in the table below. Iowa, Minnesota, and North Dakota offer the program at more than one of their public universities. State University Program Iowa Iowa State University University of Iowa Minnesota University of Minnesota Twin Cities University of Minnesota Duluth Montana Montana State University Nebraska University of Nebraska-Lincoln North Dakota North Dakota State University University of North Dakota Wyoming University of Wyoming Historical Background SDSU has offered an M.S. in Engineering (emphasis in Computer Science) since 1994, and has produced many successful graduates. The average enrollment in the program in the last ten years is 38 students and more than 80 students have completed Master of Science theses and research/design papers in the last ten years. Prior to 2010, the MS in Engineering had emphases (Agricultural & Biosystems Engineering, Civil Engineering, Computer Science, Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, and Physics). Five of the six emphases were standalone master s programs prior to 1973 when they were combined into a single Engineering program as part of a Board of Regents effort to reduce graduate programs in the state system. The Board of Regents has recently approved new engineering master s degrees to replace emphases within the M.S. in Engineering: M.S. in Electrical Engineering, approved December 2009 M.S. in Civil Engineering, approved March-April 2010 M.S. in Mechanical Engineering, approved March-April 2010 M.S. in Agricultural & Biosystems Engineering, approved March-April 2010 SDSU MS CompSci Sep01.doc Page 3 of 10 Printed: , 10:40 AM

4 There remains only one emphasis area left in the M.S, in Engineering degree: Computer Science. The Electrical Engineering & Computer Science Department offers both an ABET accredited BS in Computer Science program and the current M.S. in Engineering (emphasis in Computer Science) which is operated entirely as if it were a strong traditional M.S. in Computer Science program. The program has a Computer Science Graduate Coordinator and five faculty members who have Graduate Faculty status with the Graduate School. Competition for high quality computer science graduate students has become increasingly challenging due to the unconventional name of the program. This is especially problematic now as growth in research in computer science and engineering has become a high priority strategic goal for the College of Engineering and SDSU. Computer science has been identified as a target area for investment and growth in funded research, and renaming this M.S. program is an important part of the SDSU strategy. 2. Rationale A. If a new degree is proposed, what is the rationale? SDSU offers the M.S. degree in a number of disciplines. B. What is the rationale for the curriculum? The curriculum is based upon a traditional M.S. in Computer Science program, building upon a set of foundational courses in computer science covering the fundamental research areas and including elective courses that provide the student with depth of knowledge in her/his field of interest. The SDSU computer science program has strong supporting coursework and faculty expertise in areas of (1) Artificial Intelligence, (2) High Performance and distributed Computing, (3) Multimedia Computation, (4) Software Engineering, (5) Computer Networks and (6) Real time Embedded Systems. C. Demonstrate that the curriculum is consistent with current national standards. Formal national standards do not exist for M.S. programs in computer science. Standards are maintained through rigorous coursework and research that is comparable to other recognized graduate institutions across the nation. The structure for the proposed M.S. in Computer Science is traditional and very similar to those of other programs including the four leading graduate programs in Computer Science listed below: Rice University University of Texas at Austin SDSU MS CompSci Sep01.doc Page 4 of 10 Printed: , 10:40 AM

5 University of Michigan at Ann Arbor University of Utah The proposed program structure includes the two pathways also available at the four leading institutions: one for the traditional thesis (30 credits) and a more professional pathway for the research/design paper option (32 credits). The traditional thesis option requires completion of 30 credits with approximately 24 credits in coursework plus 6 credits of thesis/research. A comparison of thesis program requirements is summarized in the table below: Structure of Computer Science Master s Programs for the Research (thesis) Path Rice U. U. Texas U. Michigan U. Utah SDSU proposed Core course credits, all students Elective course credits (includes approved courses from both inside and outside of the CS major) Thesis Credits Total Credits Most programs (all four of those leading programs in the table above) also include a professional pathway for the degree that requires more course credits in place of the thesis credits. D.

Student Outcomes & Demonstration of Individual Achievement A. What specific knowledge and competencies, including technology competencies, will all students demonstrate be able to demonstrate before graduation? The knowledge and competencies should be specific to the program and not routinely expected of all university graduates. Complete Appendix A Outcomes using the system form. Outcomes discussed below should be the same as those in Appendix A. Appendix A contains the student outcomes that were developed to ensure that all graduates are prepared to enter employment in industry or continue on towards a Ph.D. degree. These outcomes focus on three major areas: SDSU MS CompSci Sep01.doc Page 6 of 10 Printed: , 10:40 AM

7 conduct research and/or design projects that demonstrate an ability to model, analyze and design computer science processes and systems; articulate a solid understanding of the fundamental principles in computer science, including in the area of specialization and supporting areas; and demonstrate an ability to communicate, both orally and in writing, technical information in an effective manner. B. What national instruments (examinations) are available to measure individual student achievement in this field? None C. How will mastery by individual students be demonstrated? Describe the specific examinations or processes to be used. This is to include external measures. 1 What will be the consequences for students who do not demonstrate mastery? Mastery will be demonstrated through assessing completion of the Outcomes in Appendix A and the existing policies of the SDSU Master of Science Degree Requirements of the Graduate School (see Graduate Bulletin) including the Comprehensive Oral Examination conducted by the Advisory Committee at the conclusion of each student s work. In addition, the written thesis or research/design paper, which is submitted to the Advisory Committee prior to the Final Oral Examination, also serves as part of the process for verifying mastery. SDSU policy requires that the program submit an annual assessment report on achievement of the outcomes. 4. What instructional approaches and technologies will be used to teach courses in the program? This refers to the instructional technologies used to teach courses and NOT the technology applications students are expected to learn. Standard contemporary classroom and laboratory technologies will be used. 5. Did the University engage any developmental consultants 2 to assist with the development of the curriculum? Were any professional or accrediting associations consulted during the development of the curriculum? What were the contributions of the consultants and associations to the development of curriculum? See also section 11 below. None used 6. Are students in the program expected to be new to the university, redirected from other programs or both? Complete the table and explain how the estimates were developed. 1 What national examination, externally evaluated portfolio or student activity, etc will be used to verify that individuals have attained a high level of competence and identify those who need additional work? 2 Developmental consultants are experts in the discipline are hired by the university to assist with the development of a new program (content, courses, experiences, etc). Universities are encouraged to discuss the selection of developmental consultants with Board staff. See section 11 below. SDSU MS CompSci Sep01.doc Page 7 of 10 Printed: , 10:40 AM

8 Fiscal Years* 1st 2nd 3rd 4th Estimates FY12 FY13 FY14 FY15 Students transferring from M.S. in Engineering, fall Students continuing from earlier years Students new to the university, fall = Total students in the program (fall semester) Program credit hours (major courses)** Graduates in FY ** This is the total number of credit hours generated by students in the program in the required or elective program courses. Students currently enrolled in the MS in Engineering with an emphasis in Computer Science will be redirected to the proposed MS in CS program. In the past 5 years, the average number of students enrolled in the program has been 30. Typically 15 or more new students enroll each year. Students average 7.5 credits per semester with coursework and thesis/design paper. Since the MS in CS program is recognized as the research MS degree, it is anticipated that the pool of applicants for the MS in CS program will be expanded and include higher quality applicants than the current MS in Engineering program. This will allow the department to be more selective in accepting MS applicants. 7. If program accreditation is available, identify the organization and explain whether accreditation is required or optional, the resources required, and the University s plans concerning the accreditation of this program. Dual program accreditation by the Engineering Accreditation Commission (EAC) of the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET) was only recently approved for B.S. and M.S. programs in Computer Science. However, the criteria for MS level accreditation are still being developed. The institution s plans for future accreditation of the MS program will depend on the outcome of the new ABET criteria development. If the institution decides to pursue future ABET accreditation, no new required resources will be required. 8. Does the University request any exceptions to any Board policy for this program? Explain any requests for exceptions to Board Policy. None. 9. Program Delivery A. Does the University request authorization to deliver this entire program at any offcampus locations? If yes, list location(s) and intended start date(s). No SDSU MS CompSci Sep01.doc Page 8 of 10 Printed: , 10:40 AM

9 B. Does the University request authorization to deliver this entire program by distance technology? If yes, identify delivery method(s) and intended start date(s). No C. Include off-campus tuition and site or delivery costs in the next section and in Appendix D. If off-campus or distance delivery authorization is not requested, enter None. None 10. Costs, Budget and Resources Development/Start-up Long-term Operation Reallocate existing resources No Yes Apply for external resources No Yes Ask Board to seek new State resources No No Ask Board to approve new or increased student fee No No Explain the amount and source(s) of any one-time and continuing investments in personnel, professional development, release time, time redirected from other assignments, instructional technology & software, other O&M, facilities, etc needed to implement the proposed program. Address off-campus or distance delivery separately. Complete Appendix B Budget and Resources and briefly summarize. The University has developed the graduate courses in computer science so that students may complete the M.S. in Engineering with an emphasis in Computer Science. There are no onetime costs or reallocations necessary to implement an M.S. in Computer Science. A budget is not provided because all resources (faculty, courses, funding, etc.) necessary to operate the proposed M.S. in Computer Science program are currently in place. 11. Board Policy 2:1: Proposals for new graduate programs shall be evaluated by independent consultants retained by the Board. Provide the names, telephone numbers, and URLs of professional organizations, accrediting bodies, and journals (editors) who may be able to assist the Board staff with the identification of consultants. External review was waived by the Executive Director (Dr. Warner) because the University has allowed students to complete a computer science emphasis within the M.S. in Engineering.
