The Computer Science program is slated for closure and is not accepting new majors. Please contact the Dean of the College of Science, Engineering and Technology for additional information.

The CS department continually reviews the curriculum to provide a comprehensive education for our students, teach industry-required skills, and supply competent computer scientists to prospective employers. This continuous examination ensures the maintenance of the high standards set by our alumni. Our curriculum goals include the following:

  • Provide our students with the appropriate mathematics background
  • Require our students to have a substantial amount of programming courses
  • Require a capstone experience of either an internship, a senior design project, or a thesis
  • Update major requirements to reflect industry needs
  • Provide student access to leading edge software tools
  • Use industry practitioners to advise on changes in the curriculum
