About Program

Admission to the computer science or information systems programs takes place upon the successful completion of the course MATH 110 with a grade of (C-).

Transfer equivalencies from ABET accredited programs (http://abet.org) or equivalent will be considered. We also accept transfer from non-accredited programs for the courses that do not fall under the prefixes CSIS.

The objectives of the CS program are to graduate students who:

  1. Succeed in a CS-related career by demonstrating leadership and ability to grow professionally in competence, and/or pursue and successfully complete advanced degrees.
     
  2. Apply principles of CS and industry computing practices to analyze, design, and implement computer-based solutions.
     
  3. Communicate and work effectively with professionals from different areas of specialization.
     
  4. Function ethically and responsibly in the profession and society.

By the time of graduation, CS students will possess:

  1. Analyze a complex computing problem and apply principles of computing and other relevant disciplines to identify solutions.
     
  2. Design, implement, and evaluate a computing-based solution to meet a given set of computing requirements in the context of the program’s discipline.
     
  3. Communicate effectively in a variety of professional contexts.
     
  4. Recognize professional responsibilities and make informed judgments in computing practice based on legal and ethical principles.
     
  5. Function effectively as a member or leader of a team engaged in activities appropriate to the program’s discipline.
     
  6. Apply computer science theory and software development fundamentals to produce computing-based solutions.
