The computer and information science curriculum offers two options leading to the bachelor of science degree. Both options enable the student to study computer science in a setting that utilizes a variety of stateoftheart computer equipment and technology.

The information science option is intended for students pursuing a career as an application programmer/analyst in a business information systems environment, or who plan to continue the study of information systems in graduate school. This option requires substantial course work in business.

The computer science option is intended for students pursuing a career as a systems programmer, an application programmer in a scientific or an engineering

environment, or who plan to continue the study of computer science in graduate school. This option requires substantial course work in mathematics and engineering.
