Computer Science

Computer science is concerned with the systematic study of algorithms for describing and transforming information.  The fundamental question is: what can be (efficiently) automated?

Innovative computing solutions have provided the basis for advances in other fields. Along with creative, wide-ranging, and profitable careers, computer science offers practitioners the chance to make real contributions that benefit society at large.

The Department of Computer Science offers an undergraduate major leading to a B.S. degree and a graduate program leading to the M.S. and Ph.D. degrees. Our full-time faculty teach the courses from the freshman level to graduate research seminars.  Students at all levels have the opportunity to pursue research projects either individually or in groups.


Important note concerning graduate admissions and the novel coronavirus.
