School of Computing

Computer Science Division

The Computer Science division forms the intellectual and engineering core of the School of Computing. Education in computer science at Clemson introduces students to designing and building software, developing effective strategies for solving computing problems, devising new ways to use computers, and planning and managing computing infrastructure.


The Mission of the Computer Science Division within the School of Computing at Clemson University is threefold:

  1. to provide the highest quality undergraduate and graduate education within the rapidly evolving field of computing,
  2. to conduct research in computing and its many application areas and
  3. to provide a resource for computing science expertise to the people of South Carolina and the Nation.


We will be a leader in computer science education at the undergraduate and graduate levels. We will attract superior students and faculty to fulfill our educational and scholarship responsibilities. We will be widely recognized for the high quality of our research, be it foundational, applied, or interdisciplinary in nature. Our outreach activities will result in the dissemination of valuable knowledge to the State of South Carolina and the Nation.

The School offers five degree programs for students interested in Computer Science:

  • The B.S. in Computer Science is a technically oriented degree suited for students interested in software development for computing, scientific, and engineering applications.
  • The B.S. in Computer Information Systems is a combination of cores computer science courses and courses selected from management, marketing, finance, economics, and accounting.
  • The B.A. in Computer Science provides the student with the maximum flexibility in designing a course of study that supports his or her particular interests while at the same time providing a firm foundation in computer science.
  • The M.S. in Computer Science prepares individuals for a Ph.D. program, research careers in industry, or advanced technical positions in industry and government.
  • The Ph.D. in Computer Science is designed to prepare individuals for research careers in academia, government and industry.

Areas of exceptional research strength in the Computer Science division include software engineering, algorithms, networks, and cyberinfrastructure.
