The Department of Computer and Information Science offers two types of undergraduate degrees, the Bachelor of Science in Engineering (BSE) and the Bachelor of Applied Science (BAS). The program also offers several options for students to customize their degrees.
The BSE is a traditional engineering degree that prepares students for careers in professional engineering, computer science or digital media design. BSE programs offered by the Department include Computer Science (CSCI), Computer Engineering (CMPE), Digital Media Design (DMD) and Networked & Social Systems Engineering (NETS).
The BAS is a degree option that offers students breadth and allows them to combine a technology-based degree with considerable course work in the liberal arts, communications or fine arts. This degree is designed primarily for students whose interests are not oriented toward a professional engineering career. BAS programs offered by the Department include Computer Science (ASCS), Computational Biology (ASCB) and Computer and Cognitive Science (ASCC).
