Undergraduate Degree Programs

Computer Science

The Bachelor of Science degree program in Computer Science is designed to provide the foundation necessary for computer science graduates to succeed in the computing profession as well as in graduate school. The program is accredited by the Computing Accreditation Commission of ABET, http://www.abet.org.

The program has three concentrations:

  • A “Data Science” concentration that provides a depth of knowledge in the fundamental topics of data science will prepare students for graduate studies in data science, a career in scientific research, or a career in software engineering and application development in data science.

We are committed to preparing students to be nationally competitive both in the workforce and in graduate studies.  To this end, emphasis is placed on involving undergraduate students in active faculty research activities, course projects that are taken directly from the business world, and internships that are facilitated by the program. We maintain an active Industry Advisory Board that provides input and guidance to the program for producing competitive graduates.

 


Information Technology

The Bachelor of Science in Information Technology degree program features similar computer science coursework, but less math. It also includes an "Application Area" which allows student an opportunity to apply what they have learned to a specific discipline. The program is accredited by the Computing Accreditation Commission of ABET, http://www.abet.org.
