General Information: The Department of Computer and Information Science and Engineering offers several degree programs and service courses. Bachelorís degree programs and a minor are available in the colleges of Liberal Arts and Sciences, Business Administration, and Engineering. For a description of the minor, refer to the College of Engineering catalog section. Masterís degree programs and a Ph.D. program also are available.

The Major in CLAS: A minimum of 120 semester hours and a junior/senior level GPA of 2.0 is required for a bachelorís degree with a major from the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences.

To continue to the junior/senior level, a student should complete all general education requirements, at least MAC 2311, 2312, 2313 and the first physics course with a C or better grade while maintaining a 2.5 critical tracking GPA. Students with little or no programming background should take an appropriate programming course (such as CGS 2414) before taking CIS 3020. Fulfilling the minimum requirements, however, does not guarantee admission to the program.

Department requirements:

  • Mathematics requirements:MAC 2311, 2312 and 2313, MAS 3114, STA 2023 and STA 4033.
  • Physics requirement: PHY 2048L or 2053L and either PHY 2048 or 2053; PHY 2049L or 2054L and either PHY 2049 or 2054.
  • English requirement: ENC 2210 (grade of C or better).
  • Major courses: CIS 3020 (grade of C or better) and 4914, CDA 3101, COP 3530 and 4600, COT 3100 and 4501, CEN 3031 and EEL 3701C.
  • One of COP 4720 or CAP 4800.
  • Six hours of approved CISE electives.
  • An exit interview is required during the last semester. Please see a CISE adviser.

Before registering for CIS 4914, a project must be approved by an adviser.

The student also must satisfy the basic distribution requirements.

Honors: To graduate cum laude, a student must have an overall GPA of 3.5. To graduate magna cum laude (high honors) or summa cum laude (highest honors) requires two additional approved CISE courses. Highest honors also requires an overall GPA of 3.8. A student must petition for approval to attempt CISE honors at least one semester before graduation.

Combined Bachelorís/Masterís Program: The combined bachelorís/masterís program allows up to 12 hours of graduate course work to be used in both the undergraduate and graduate programs. See a CISE adviser for admission criteria.

The Minor: Refer to the CISE section in the College of Engineering.
