About Bachelor of Science in Computer Science

A computer Science student will be prepared to contribute to a rapidly changing field by acquiring a thorough grounding in the core principles and foundations of computer science (e.g., techniques of program design, creation, and testing; key aspects of computer hardware; algorithmic principles).

A computer Science student will acquire a deeper understanding of (elective) topics of more specialized interest, and be able to critically review, assess, and communicate current developments in the field.

A computer Science student will be prepared for the next step in their careers, for example, by having done a research project (for those headed to graduate school), a programming project (for those going into the software industry), or some sort of business plan (for those going into startups).

Program Structure

Career opportunities

The field of computer science focuses on the study of software systems, and a degree in the discipline allows someone to pursue a variety of careers. Contrary to what it may seem, the demand for computer scientists is not limited to positions in Silicon Valley technology companies, according to computer science professors at the university. Instead, the increasing use of technology throughout the business world means that companies in many industries are hiring grads of computer science programs.
