The Computer Science program is accredited by the Computing Accreditation Commission of ABET, https:// www.abet.org. The major in Computer Science prepares a student for employment in business, industry, government, academia and for further study in computer science or a cognate field through course offerings in areas such as Programming, Computer Logic and Organization, Networking, Cybersecurity, Database Design, Software Engineering, Bioinformatics and Robotics. The program offers a minor in Robotics and Embodied Intelligence, a minor in Bio informatics and bio fabrication, a concentration in Cybersecurity for CS majors, and a Cybersecurity minor for all majors at the University.
Double Major in Mathematics and Computer Science: To be eligible to pursue a double major in mathematics and computer science, a student must have completed a minimum of sixty (60) semester hours of course work with a minimum 2.500 cumulative GPA. As a minimum, the course work must include CS160, CS170, M158, M168, and M215. The student must have a “B” average (3.000) in all mathematics and computer science courses that have been taken.

Minors/Concentrations: The Computer Science Program offers the following minors and concentrations:
- Minor in Computer Science
- Minor in Robotics and Embodied Intelligence
- Minor in Biocomputing and Bioinformatics
- Double Major (Mathematics and Computer Science)
- Concentration in Cybersecurity
- Cybersecurity for All Minor
The Minor in Computer Science: is designed to allow other majors to complete selected courses (24 to 26 credit hours with a minimum of “C” grade) in mathematics and computer science to gain a broad understanding of Computer Science.
The Robotics and Embodied Intelligence Minor : This program offers possibility to the Computer Science majors to organize their knowledge around the notion of Robotics and Embodied Intelligence. It widens the possibilities for job application for computer science majors in emerging job areas such as classical robotics, artificial intelligence, and biology based robots. Students need to complete selected courses (18 credit hours with a minimum of “C” grade) for this minor. (More Info)
The Cybersecurity for All Minor: This program is designed to introduce all majors at the University to the important field of Cybersecurity. Students in this minor can be from any disciplines at the university and are required to complete selected courses (18 hours with a minimum of “C” grade) for this minor. These courses include hands-on and virtual laboratory experiences. Students completing this concentration may have better career opportunities.
Concentration in Cybersecurity: The Concentration in Cybersecurity is designed to introduce our majors to the important field of Cybersecurity. Students in this concentration are required to complete selected courses (17 hours with a minimum of “C” grade) for this concentration. These courses include hands-on and virtual laboratory experiences. Students completing this concentration may have better career opportunities. The concentration in Cybersecurity received the NSA-DHS Center of Academic Excellence in Cyber Defender Education (CAE-CDE) in 2019 for 5 years (2019-2024) - (More Info)
