Computer Science is a diverse and ubiquitous field, touching people's lives in many ways. UB offers BA, BS, and BS/MS degree options for Computer Science. The BS Computer Science program at UB provides a solid foundation in software development, computer science theory and systems, and offers students the flexibility to specialize in areas such as machine learning, robotics, databases, data mining, distributed systems, networking, data intensive computing, and computer architecture. The program offers many opportunities to engage outside the classroom setting. Outside the classroom setting students can join student clubs, like the Association for Computing Machinery and Scientista, work as undergraduate teaching assistants, and participate in research projects. Our graduates go on to rewarding careers in industry, and pursue graduate degrees.
The Computer Science BS program is accredited by the Computing Accreditation Committee of ABET.
The curriculum is designed to meet several educational objectives. These program education objectives (PEOs) are broad statements that describe the expected accomplishments of graduates within a few years after graduation. Specific PEOs are that graduates will:
- work productively as Computer Scientists, including in leadership and supportive roles on diverse teams,
- communicate effectively,
- adapt to and shape a rapidly evolving computing landscape,
- recognize and address societal needs in their professional endeavors, and
- practice their profession with high regard to legal and ethical responsibilities.
