The Computer Science and Engineering Department at Taylor University offers challenging courses in the following degree options.
- Computer Science Degree Requirements
- Choice of Bachelor of Arts (BA) or Bachelor of Science (BS).
- The BA degree is designed to provide a solid background in the field for those wishing to immediately enter a career in computer science or related fields.
- The BS degree is designed primarily for students wishing to pursue graduate study in computer science.
- The BS degree with Systems adds the systems analysis component to the existing BS degree.
- Five concentrations are available including Business Information Systems, Graphics, Intelligent Systems (Artificial Intelligence), Scientific Computing, and Software Studio.
Computer Science / New Media
- Computer Science / New Media Degree Requirements
- An interdisciplinary major offered by the Computer Science and Engineering, Communication, and Art departments.
Choice of Bachelor of Arts (BA) or Bachelor of Science (BS) with Systems.
- The BA degree prepares students in the development and support of computing tools in the creative arts.
- The BS degree with Systems adds the systems analysis component.
- Computer Engineering Degree Requirements
- This ABET Accredited program is an interdisciplinary major offered jointly by the Computer Science and Engineering and Physics departments.
- The major prepares students for employment and/or graduate programs involving robotics, biomedical implants, small instrumentation, telecommunications, supervisory control and data acquisition systems, and other complex hardware-software systems.
- System Engineering Requirements
- Systems Enginering is an interdisciplinary appraoch and means to enable the realization of successful systems.
- It is offered jointly by the Computer Science, Math, and Physics and Engineering departments.
Computer Science Minor
- Computer Science Minor Degree Requirements
- With 25 credit hours in computer science and systems, a student can supplement a major in another field with a minor in computer science. A minor in computer science will give a student the tools necessary for proficiency in computer science, as several students have landed computer science related jobs despite only being minors.
- Systems Degree Requirements
- The systems curriculum is chosen by many computer science students because of their closely-tied relationship. Systems analysts often use the technical components and thinking that computer scientists tend to acquire, and the systems curriculum in turn helps the computer scientist have a more complete system-wide view of their programs.
- Study what you love, add Systems, and get a great job upon graduation!
- You can choose to add Systems to nearly any major, not just computer science.
- Courses focus on analysis and design, leading to excellent preparation for working in any organization.
