B.S. In Computer Science



The Bachelor of Science in Computer Science (BS-CS) program prepares students for careers as systems programmers in a scientific and/or engineering environment and for further graduate work in computer science. Mathematics and engineering courses supplement a strong core of computer science courses, enabling students to design and implement software that requires complicated computations, data structures, and interfaces.

Program Educational Objectives

The mission of the Department is to produce men and women who can assess, develop, and maintain business and scientific computing systems, and who are capable of continued learning and ethical practice in computing.

In Accomplishing This Mission, Within the first few years following graduation, The Graduates Of The BS-CS Degree Program Will:
  1. Communicate effectively using terminology and processes that are appropriate for the field of computer science.
  2. Work efficiently and effectively in a team environment to develop appropriate computer-based systems to satisfy stated requirements.
  3. Solve complex computational problems using appropriate models, techniques, and abstractions.
  4. Conduct themselves in a professional and ethically responsible manner.
  5. Learn new trends and technology and willingly adapt to new systems and software environments.

Student Outcomes

In support of the program educational objectives above, the curriculum of the Computer Science Program is designed to enable students to attain the following outcomes:

  1. Analyze a complex computing problem and to apply principles of computing and other relevant disciplines to identify solutions.
  2. Design, implement, and evaluate a computing-based solution to meet a given set of computing requirements in the context of the program’s discipline.
  3. Communicate effectively in a variety of professional contexts.
  4. Recognize professional responsibilities and make informed judgments in computing practice based on legal and ethical principles.
  5. Function effectively as a member or leader of a team engaged in activities appropriate to the program’s discipline.
  6. Apply computer science theory and software development fundamentals to produce computing-based solutions. (Unique to computer science)
