Undergraduate ProgramGraduate Programs
The Computer Science Department offers programs leading to bachelor's, master's and doctoral degrees that are a blend of both applied and theoretical aspects of computation, including a bioinformatics option.
Our graduates are highly sought after by regional, national and international companies, including 3COM, Analog Devices, AstraZeneca, Avid, BAE, Cisco, EMC, Fidelity, Google, IBM, InforSense, iRobot, Merck, MITRE, Microsoft, Motorola, Nortel, Oracle, Raytheon, and Segway, as well as academic and research organizations, including Beijing University, Utah State, Louisiana State, MIT, and Pfizer Research.
We also offer, in conjunction with the Division of Continuing Studies, the Computer Science Certificate. The purpose of the certificate is to prepare the working professional, who may not have earned a bachelor's degree in computer science, for graduate work in computer science.
