The computer science program will prepare graduates for computer software development, software engineering, software development management, system development, and computer entrepreneurial positions in businesses and scientific organizations. It also will prepare students for graduate study in computer science. Graduates of the program will develop an understanding of algorithms, data structures, artificial intelligence, computer organization and architecture, numerical computation, operating systems, networking, programming language theory, and software engineering. Since the program is offered by the Romain College of Business, opportunities for business management, marketing, accounting, and management information systems electives are offered.
Economics and computer science majors are offered in the Romain College of Business but are not business majors. Students enrolled in these programs do not take the Business Core.
