Computer Science, B.Sc.

    Duration
University rank #401 (ARWU) , WV,
Computer science is a discipline that involves the understanding and design of computational processes. The discipline ranges from a theoretical study of algorithms and information processing in general, to a practical design of efficient and reliable software that meets given specifications. This differs from most physical sciences, engineering included, that separate theoretical underpinnings of the science from applications within it.

About

Partly because of the broad nature of computer science, and partly because students need flexibility in choosing a plan that best fits their needs, the department offers two tracks in the B.S. degree program: one track is with the Statler College of Engineering and Mineral Resources, and one track is with the Eberly College or Arts and Science.

This option is well-suited for freshman engineering students who meet pre-computer science entrance requirements, and for engineering students who want to double major in computer science and computer engineering.

Accreditation

WVU is accredited by the Higher Learning Commission.

Accredited by the Computing Accreditation Commission of the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology, the sole agency for accreditation of educational programs leading to degrees in engineering.

Academic Requirements

Freshman:

  • Must have at least a 2.5 grade-point average on a 4.0 scale.
  • Must meet English Proficiency or request conditional admission and complete an Intensive English Program (IEP) application.
  • Please be advised that some Engineering majors may reach capacity and therefore will be restricted from entry.
  • For direct admission to some colleges and majors, SAT or ACT scores are required and must be sent to WVU directly from the respective testing services. For all other majors, international students are encouraged but not required to submit SAT or ACT scores, if available. SAT/ACT scores are useful for determining scholarship eligibility.
