Welcome to the department that represents the field at the forefront of high-impact developments, such as Internet, e-mail, search engines, wi-fi, games, software, etc. We take pride in our high-quality, student-centered degree and certificate programs, which are enhanced by state-of-the-art instructional technology and applied research activities. The distinctions of our programs include high quality and accessibility to both traditional and non-traditional students.
For undergraduates, we offer the Bachelor of Science and the Bachelor of Arts Computer Science, a Bachelor of Science in Software Engineering, a Minor in Computer Science and Software Engineering, a Bachelor of Science in Computer Game Design and Development, a Minor in Computer Game Design and Development, as well as a Professional Certificate in Computer Programming.
Our Bachelor of Science programs, including Computer Science, Software Engineering, and Computer Game Design and Development are all accredited by the Computing Accreditation Commission of ABET, www.abet.org.
Our graduate programs include Master of Science degrees in Computer Science and Software Engineering, Graduate Certificates in Computer Science and Software Engineering, and a Graduate Transition Certificate in Computer Science.
In addition to welcoming full-time students with degrees in Computer Science, Software Engineering, or related fields, we also cater to two major non-traditional groups of students: those with baccalaureate degrees in other majors and those whose schedules allow for only part-time studies. We have a substantial array of evening course offerings. Moreover, we offer an increasing number of our courses fully online.
In addition to a wide selection of courses, the programs allow students to take advantage of the many opportunities. Many graduate and research assistantships are available, as are several student assistant positions, some through sponsored research. The colloquium series features talks by invited speakers on current topics in the discipline. You will find links to information on our degree and certificate programs and many other topics at this web site. Other topics of interest are at the School of CSE.
I welcome your suggestions on how this web site can be improved and how we can better serve our constituencies, namely, our students, the community at large, and the taxpayers.
