The Computer Science program at Rutgers University is a nationally ranked program that prepares you for a rapidly changing field.


About Computer Science

Computers are an integral part of the modern world, and pervade science, business, entertainment, and communications. Hardware and software continue to evolve rapidly: today's cell phones have more computing capacity than mainframes of the 1960s. The Computer Science and Information Systems majors prepare students to become active participants in this exciting and expanding field.

The Computer Science program at Rutgers University, offered jointly with the New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT), provides students with computer programming, algorithms, and mathematics courses designed to give a solid technical understanding of the area, from microchips to the Internet. The major culminates in a Senior Project, in which students design and build a substantial piece of software that addresses a real-world problem. Students are prepared for careers in programming and networking as well as graduate studies in Computer Science.
