Computer Science at Penn State Harrisburg

Bachelor of Science in Computer Science:

The Computer Science major provides comprehensive preparation in the areas of algorithm design and analysis, systems programming, programming languages, and software engineering and design. Elective courses provide deeper coverage of these areas, as well as background in diverse areas such as artificial intelligence, database design, compiler construction, and computer network and security. The program is strong in mathematical and statistical components, and students should expect to develop a solid background in the mathematical sciences, to master skills in computer science, and, most importantly, to become good problem solvers. These goals are consistent with the goals outlined by the Association for Computer Machinery. Through this program students are prepared to work as computer scientists in engineering, scientific, industrial, and business environments. While most students will enter the job market directly upon graduation, graduate school in computer science or related areas is also an option. Selection of electives can be tailored for students pursuing this path.
