About

The Computer Science department at Missouri University of Science and Technology educates students in a broad range of areas. Students take courses in the design and implementation of software systems and the algorithms (problem solving techniques) used to solve “real world” problems in business, industry, and engineering or as preparation for graduate study. 

Overview

While instruction and research are on the leading edge of computing, the department endeavors to keep class sizes small to promote proactive teaching practices and effective interactions between the students and faculty.

In addition to computer science courses, the department’s undergraduate program requires students to be educated in a broad range of general education courses. All computer science seniors are expected to take the capstone course that gives them “real world” experience working in teams composed of fellow students and practicing computer scientists. These teams design, implement, test, and maintain actual software systems. (The sample curriculum shown below provides more detail.)

The Computer Science faculty has a broad range of scholarly interests which include computer security and privacy, databases and wireless systems, intelligent systems (artificial intelligence, machine learning, evolutionary computation), data mining, parallel and distributed processing, software engineering, computer networks, computer vision, mobile and pervasive computing, computational science, and algorithms. The research being done in these areas involves both undergraduates and graduates and supports the department’s crosscutting areas of excellence: big data, critical infrastructure protection, cyber physical systems, and smart computing. Faculty are not only actively doing research in these areas; they integrate their research experiences into the classroom.
