Department of Computer Science

As the price of computers and related hardware drastically decreases, the most valuable component of any computing system increasingly becomes the SOFTWARE. Think about it. What would your Cellphone, iPod, XBox, PlayStation, Wii, or Notebook Computer be like without the SOFTWARE running on them? That's why the demand for our students is … expected to increase much faster than the average for all occupations.

Here, in the Department of Computer Science, we are developing computer scientists for exciting and prosperous careers in 21st Century Computing. This new age of Computing is focused more on the creative engineering aspects of software design & development than merely on programming.Our curriculum provides our students with exposure to: Game Design, Cyber Security, Robotics, Software Engineering, Computational Science & Engineering, Bio-Inspired SuperComputing, and more! Come join the excitement!!
