Department of Computer Science

The Computer Science Department is committed to being a model of creativity and technical leadership. Our faculty and staff are dedicated to providing our students with the best possible education by offering courses in the latest technologies and providing the attention and support that is needed to produce talented graduates in computer science and cyber defense education.

The department has three computer science programs of study to select from; an undergraduate degree, master's degree and a doctoral degree. 

Our undergraduate curriculum is designed to meet the guidelines of  the Computing Accreditation Commission of  ABET – our accreditation body - and recommendations  from our External Advisory Board which guides the department in identifying skills students need to be competitive in today’s rapidly evolving high-tech industry. Students will learn concepts in computer science and cyber education that will create a foundation for all future endeavors, whether in the work place or in an advanced degree program. Our association with the External Advisory Board helps us to stay relevant in a rapidly changing environment.
