Computer Science

A Bachelor of Science degree in Computer Science (BSCS) prepares students to excel in an increasingly complex technical world. Computer Science (CS) majors study computers, their organization, and the software that runs them. They will study algorithms for solving different real-world problems, methods of algorithm design and analysis. CS majors learn programming languages, methods of software engineering, and the modern approaches to computer programming. They will study discrete mathematics, and other mathematical disciplines, which are essential for the algorithm design, modeling and solving a variety of real-world problems.  With a degree in CS from Texas A&M University-Texarkana, students can pursue careers in software development, database administration, computer engineering, systems analyst, computer network architect, web development, information system management, and many other computer technology careers.

The concentration in Computer Engineering is offered under the Bachelor of Science degree in Computer Science (BSCS) and involves a high level instruction and experience in computer programming and hardware design. This concentration involves many hardware and software aspects of computing to process information in digital form ranging from word processing to mathematical computations. Devices range in size and power from pocket calculators to personal computers to supercomputers that perform complex tasks. These devices are built as networks of microcircuits, or integrated circuits, which include thousands, or millions of electrical components that often operate at speeds and power levels close to fundamental physical limits like the speed of light. Computer Engineers have job opportunities in a variety of companies such as Intel, HP, and Texas Instruments, and also in industries that build or use computer-based systems. Computer engineers may also find jobs as programmers and can enjoy high starting salaries.

CS majors have also a unique opportunity to participate in undergraduate research under supervision of faculty members in the Computational Intelligence Laboratory. Recently one of the CS research projects on computational intelligence was awarded by the $300,000 grant from the National Science Foundation. The research assistantships are available for the CS undergraduates. The CS Department continuously works in close collaboration with other departments on the improvement of the CS curriculum including more classes, where students may learn important fundamentals and modern cutting edge technologies.
