About

The mission of the undergraduate program in Computer Science - Systems Track from Stanford University is to develop students' breadth of knowledge across the subject areas of computer science, including their ability to apply the defining processes of computer science theory, abstraction, design, and implementation to solve problems in the discipline.  

Overview

Key facts

In the last quarter of a century, progress in Computer Science has been enormously rapid, fueling exciting and creative transformations within the field as well as applications in other fields. Stanford's Computer Science Department was founded in 1965 and has consistently enjoyed the reputation of being one of the top computer science programs in the world.You do not need any prior background to study CS! Many students start taking the introductory CS106 courses with no prior experience coding. 

The Computer Science - Systems Track curriculum from Stanford University provides knowledge that is applicable across many fields, including many areas of engineering, science, and medicine.

The core material of the computer science program has been streamlined into six classes that every CS student takes. Students then pick an area that they would like to study in more depth, which becomes their track specialization. The track typically consists of 4-5 classes. Finally, students round out their CS curriculum with 2-4 elective courses.
