Bachelor of Science in Computer Science
The Computer Science Program is accredited by the Computing Accreditation Commission of ABET, http://www.abet.org. Graduates of the Program will be prepared to apply their knowledge within field settings and to pursue graduate studies in Computer Science.
Program Educational Objectives
Recipients of the Bachelor of Science in Computer Science:
- Will apply theoretical principles and practical tools and techniques in computing to solve real-world problems.
- Will communicate effectively orally and in writing, as an individual and as a member of a team.
- Will become professionally employed and/or enrolled in advanced graduate studies in Computer Science or a related area.
Graduates of the Computer Science Program will, by the time of graduation, have the following knowledge, abilities, and appreciation of professional standards.
- An ability to apply knowledge of computing and mathematics appropriate to the discipline
- An ability to analyze a problem, and identify and define the computing requirements appropriate to its solution
- An ability to design, implement, and evaluate a computer-based system, process, component, or program to meet desired needs
- An ability to function effectively on teams to accomplish a common goal
- An understanding of professional, ethical, legal, security and social issues and responsibilities

The department hires its own students to serve as tutors for our student population. Both undergraduate and graduate tutors are available and can be found in either the open lab on the first floor of the Computer Science Building, Room 111, or in the chair's office on the second floor, Suite 207. Peer-to-peer tutoring can have a positive impact on student performance.
