Quality measures incorporated in the re-engineering of an undergraduate computer science degree program

Abstract

This paper reports on the re-engineering process, and its quality control, leading to accreditation of an undergraduate program in Computer Science at the School of Sciences and Engineering of the University of Nicosia. It presents how quantitative assessment tools have been used to re-engineer a Computer Science program, while maintaining a balance between the requests of a Visiting Team of academics that was appointed by the Cyprus Evaluation Committee for Private Universities (the national body supervising private universities), the university officials trying to minimize costs/maximize income in a recessive economic environment, and other constraints imposed by the regulatory framework of the University while maintaining high quality assurance standards.
