The Bachelor of Science with a major in Computer Science program (BSCS) provides a blend of the foundations of computer science (CS) and applications in the information technology (IT) industry. The BSCS program emphasizes the study of computer systems architecture, software development, and data communications. Core technology areas include programming, computer architecture, operating systems, data communication, database systems, and software engineering. These areas are supported by a strong foundation in computing principles such as the design of programming languages, data structures, and operating system principles. The program includes a mathematics component and mathematics concepts are incorporated into many of the major courses.
Graduates of the CS program are prepared for a variety of careers in CS and IT, especially in the development of software for distributed systems. Example job titles from KSU graduates of the CS program include information technology specialist, programmer analyst, software engineer, network administrator, and software consultant. This program also prepares students for graduate studies in computing-related fields.
This program does not have specific admission requirements and only admission to Kennesaw State University is required. However, progression through the program requires students to successfully complete or transfer the equivalent of CSE 1321 , CSE 1321L , CSE 1322 , and CSE 1322L with a grade of ‘B’ or better in all four courses.
Each student is expected to meet the Academic Policies Graduation Policies and Procedures outlined in the Academic Policies section of the Catalog.
The Bachelor of Science with a major in Computer Science program is accredited by the Computing Accreditation Commission of ABET, https://www.abet.org/
