Department ofComputer Science and Engineering


From intricate network security to beautiful web design.

We offer a B.S. and minor in Computer Science and Engineering, a B.S. in Web Design and Engineering, and a five-year dual B.S./M.S. degree.

The Computer Science and Engineering program features a balanced core, emphasizing the engineering aspects of software and hardware as well as the mathematical foundations of computation. Majors can also choose to concentrate in Information Assurance, Web Technologies, or Robotics.

The Web Design and Engineering program combines a technical education in computing with courses in graphic art, communication, and sociology. Our graduates learn the engineering infrastructure of the Web, how the Web affects society, and the complex relationship between technology and the Internet.
