Overview

Computer science is much broader than just programming. It is informed by the theory and architecture of computing devices, and the tools and practices used to design and implement software.

The Computer Science major from Colorado State University provides students a broad background in the field while simultaneously allowing students to focus on specific areas. We offer the following concentrations:

  • Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning
  • Computer Science Education (beginning Fall 2022)
  • Computing Systems
  • Human-Centered Computing
  • Networks and Security
  • Software Engineering
  • General Computer Science

The department offers a wide range of specialized senior-level courses where students can explore in depth different areas of computer science including: big data, computer networks, distributed systems, artificial intelligence, machine learning, computational biology / bioinformatics, human-computer interaction, graphics, database systems, compilers, parallel programming, object oriented design, and advanced topics in algorithms and theory of computer science.

Learning Outcomes

Upon completing this program, students will be able to:

  • Understand how to use the principles of computing to design and develop software and computing systems.
  • Work effectively in teams to develop computational solutions to complex problems.
  • Communicate technical ideas effectively in writing and verbally.
