Prospective Students

Computer Science is the systematic study of computing systems and computation. The body of knowledge contains the theoretical foundation for understanding computing systems and methods, design methodology, algorithms, and software and hardware tools.

The Department of Computer Science offers unique programs, which balance the theory and practice of computer systems. These programs cover a wide range of areas, such as:

  • artificial intelligence and machine learning
  • computer security
  • software engineering
  • wireless and mobile computing
  • multimedia and digital game technologies
  • Internet and enterprise computing
  • databases and data sciences
  • computational bioinformatics

Computer Science professionals apply their knowledge of computers and computational methods to tackle complex problems. The Department of  Computer Science prepares graduates for rewarding careers in all areas of business, government, education, and industry. Organizations, both large and small, need computer professionals to convert their needs into specific programs and systems that will accomplish the job. An intelligent navigation system for a vehicle, a marketing research and analysis program for a large corporation, or a loan analysis system for a bank, are examples of the innovative systems they may build.
