Bachelor of Science in Computer Science

This ABET-accredited program provides a broad background in computer science and serves as preparation for employment in the computer industry or IT field, or for graduate studies in the discipline. The Computer Science department does not offer any formal concentrations; however, there are four courses that students at the junior and senior level choose for themselves to take. Some students have used these courses to create de facto concentrations in robotics and computational biology. Many of our students participate in undergraduate research, working with a faculty mentor on a large project for a semester or more. There is an active computer science student club which has competed in programming and robot competitions, hack-a-thon’s and on-campus activities. Our recent graduates have gone on to both graduate school programs and software groups at companies of all sorts, startups, defense contractors, medical data companies, financial corporations and more.

Honors Program

The honors program in computer science provides highly motivated computer science majors with opportunities to enhance their academic program through intensive scholarly study and research designed to be of assistance in postgraduate employment or in the pursuit of an advanced degree in computer science. Contact the Department of Computer Science for further information concerning eligibility and application.
