¿Qué aprenderé?

The Computer & Information Science Department offers a bachelor's degree in computer science with an option in software engineering: the systematic approach to the development, operation, and maintenance of software.

Software engineers analyze, design, and program software. They are concerned with issues that play a vital role in software development, such as quality, novelty, creativity, standards, teamwork, and professional practice. If you're interested in large-scale commercial software development or in managing software projects, consider software engineering.

Computer Science major

Our computer science curriculum is object-oriented, lab-intensive, and directed toward software development. You'll supplement your studies with work in specialized labs and on our network of state-of-the-art workstations.

Computer and information science differs from computer engineering in its emphasis on software, the methodologies of computing, and the study of the powerful programming languages. You'll choose from courses in programming, program design, computer languages, algorithms, artificial intelligence, computer architecture, computer graphics, computer networks, databases, game design, human-computer interaction operating systems, parallel computing, robotics, and software engineering.

For the BS in Computer Science with the software engineering option, you'll complete 60 credit hours in the major and at least 120 credits overall.

Concrete opportunities

Capstone projects: most senior engineering students work in small teams on real-world, industry-specific challenges that demand analysis, proposals, prototypes, and solutions.

Community: join organizations such as the Society of Women Engineers, the National Society of Black Engineers, and Engineers Without Borders.

Experience: participate in co-op and internship programs to gain the practical experience sought by employers.

New initiatives: collaborate, create, and explore at our IDEA Studio and the Center for Scientific Computing and Visualization Research.
