Computer scientists and engineers apply the theories and principles of mathematics and science to design computers, software, networks and processes.
  • The Computer Science and Engineering Program in the College of Engineering and Computing offers three undergraduate degree programs: a B.S. in Computer Science, a B.S.E. in Computer Engineering and a B.S. in Computer Information Systems.
  • The computer science degree covers the techniques, algorithms and theory necessary for building software, including subspecialties such as video games, bioinformatics and computational biology, computer forensics, geographic information systems, Web applications, enterprise computing, scientific computing and databases.
  • The computer engineering degree requires several classes in analog and digital circuits in addition to the core computer science classes. The degree provides students with a deeper knowledge of how computers work, thus it is for students interested in either developing computing hardware or software that communicates directly with the hardware, such as VLSI, embedded systems, device drivers, real-time operating systems, robotics and others.
  • The computer information systems degree has been designed jointly with the Darla Moore School of Business, and it requires that students finish a business information management minor from the Moore School, along with a core grounding in programming classes, computer networks and cybersecurity.
