NEIU Department of Computer Science
The goal of the Department of Computer Science is to provide individuals with a broad-based theoretical and practical understanding of Computer Science. Students who complete the program are prepared to pursue graduate study or to assume positions which include software engineering, technical programming, and the application of computers and related technologies to problems in industry such as computer security, network design and management, and Web design.
We have two listservers: for undergraduates (CSUnderGrad-L@neiu.edu) and for graduates (CSGraduate-L@neiu.edu).
The listservers are strictly for CS Deparment related information. No adds or solicitations will be sent to you.
The curriculum offered by the Department of Computer Science is designed to serve these purposes:
- To offer an undergraduate major program in computer science for individuals who wish to pursue a career in this field;
- To prepare students for graduate work in computer science;
- To offer a minor in computer science for those who feel the need for a less extensive concentration in computing;
- To serve students in other academic disciplines by offering instruction in computer applications that are useful in these disciplines.
The Department offers an undergraduate major with four choices of concentration. In each concentration, students are guided through a carefully selected sequence of courses designed to provide a thorough grounding in practical aspects of the field. Students will also acquire sufficient theoretical background to enable them to keep up with the rapid changes in computer technology and methodology. Students should consult a Department advisor to determine which concentration and electives to choose.
2014 Alumni Career Panel
On Thursday, April 10, the Computer Science Dept. will host the 23rd Alumni Career Panel at 3:00pm in SU 214. Our panelists will discuss their educational background and professional experience in the field and answer questions from the audience. There will be a reception afterwards.
