Computer Science (CS) is the study of computers and computational systems. Computer scientists create systems that are correct, reliable, and efficient.
The department currently offers two track options which are the Computer Science-Computer Science (CS-CS) and Computer Science-Software Development (CS-SD).
The Computer Science option of the Computer Science degree is focused on the technical aspects of software creation. The CS option incorporates a Math minor which encourages habits of rigor and correctness. This option is accredited by the Computing Accreditation Commission of ABET.
The Software Development option of the Computer Science degree encourages a broader, multi-talented and multi-disciplinary degree outcome. Students choose any MSU minor as a complement to their CS studies.
We have updated the curriculum of both CS-CS and CS-SD options to the recommendations of CS educational policymakers, represented by the ACM and IEEE professional organizations.
Creativity plays a large part in the computer science profession, especially in the popular fields of computer/video game design, mobile app development and computer forensics.
