The Bachelor’s in Computer Science degree program is a discipline that involves the understanding and design of computational processes. The discipline ranges from a theoretical study of algorithms and information processing in general, to a practical design of efficient and reliable software that meets given specifications. This differs from most physical sciences, engineering included, that separate theoretical underpinnings of the science from applications within it.
This Program will expose students to a variety of programming languages and systems. Students will have knowledge of the basic principles and methods of programming and the basic principles of data structures, discrete mathematics, and algorithms.
The computer science program is accredited by the Computing Accreditation Commission (CAC) of ABET, http://www.abet.org.
All applicants whose first language is not English must provide proof of English language proficiency. WVU accepts either the TOEFL or the IELTS for this purpose.
