Program Overview

  • Bachelor of Science
  • Major, Minor

The Computer Science program emphasizes practical skills built on theoretical foundations. Every course is designed to give students hands-on real-world practice with cyber security tools, big data analysis, programming language design, networking, operating system development, parallel computing and web applications. We take advantage of small class sizes and strong faculty-student relationships to push students to their greatest potential.

Our graduates are recognized by employers and graduate schools for knowing modern tools and technologies that most undergraduate students at other schools never experience. Our courses are continually revised to stay up to date with recent trends in programming languages, application development techniques, libraries and hardware.
