Welcome!

ABET Accredited
The Computer Science Department conducts both an undergraduate and a graduate program in Computer Science. The undergraduate program offers a dynamic curriculum with a strong emphasis on software design. Students navigate the intricacies of their project-oriented coursework as they learn to design, build, and implement computer software from the ground up. The program provides an extensive background in computer programming languages, computer architecture, and the design and application of computer algorithms. Progress through this diverse curriculum leads to concentrated instruction on topics such as Information Assurance and Security, cloud computing, mobile computing, software entrepreneurship, wireless communication networks, machine learning, data mining, high performance computing, robotics, human computer interaction, and 3D game programming.
