Undergraduate Advising

WHY SHOULD YOU CONSIDER COMPUTER SCIENCE AT KENT STATE UNIVERSITY?

We are proud of our modern CS curriculum that aligns with current national guidelines from the two major computing professional associations (the Computing Curriculum from the ACM and IEEE-CS).

We prepare students by focusing on concepts, together with application of those concepts. Other types of computing programs (such as Information Technology programs) tend to focus on using and managing computers, and on specific computer applications. Computer technology will change but the underlying concepts remain the same, which allows Computer Science students to adapt to new technologies as they appear.

With a large research faculty, we offer a broad array of courses, with a rich set of electives. For example, a student in our program might specialize in the area of game programming or information security.

We also have an internship program to help interested students get real-world work experience.

Moreover, our undergraduate students benefit from the department's thriving graduate program. Students take classes from professors who are researchers and have up-to-date knowledge in their fields. Interested students have the opportunity to do research with faculty members. Qualified students with good GPAs may take graduate classes, and a combined B.S./M.S. program allows up to 12 credit hours of graduate classes to count for both undergraduate and graduate credit.
