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
of the Computer Science Division
within the School of Computing at Clemson University is threefold:
highest quality undergraduate and graduate education within the
evolving field of computing,
research in computing and its many application areas and
resource for computing science expertise to the people of South
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.
