The Computer Science (CPS) program at Central State University offers a 4-year program leading to a Bachelor of Science degree. The program is preparing for an accreditation review visit by the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology, Inc. (ABET). The Department of Mathematics and Computer Science offers a minor in Computational Science under an articulation agreement with the Ohio Supercomputer Center as a partner institution in the statewide Ralph Regular School for Computational Science (see www.rrscs.org).
Students who graduate with a degree in CPS are highly qualified in:
- Programming Languages
- Operating Systems
- Scientific Programming
- Web-based Programming
- Database Systems
- Software Engineering
- Distributed Parallel Programming
Major industry, government agencies, and graduate schools also actively seek these students. The Department has an enviable record of placing its graduates in positions of employment or in graduate school.
Graduating CPS students with a minor in Computational Science are qualified in:
- Mathematical Analysis
- Programming and Algorithms
- Modeling and Simulation
- Numerical Methods
- System Optimization
These students are actively sought by industry, business and government agencies.
The Computer Science curriculum spans the spectrum from a general interest course in computer literacy to specialized topics for computer science majors in software engineering, computer architecture, system management, and computer networking. The curriculum is designed to prepare students for the requirements of the modern day knowledge economy, or the requirements of a graduate program for the pursuit of a higher degree in the field computer or computational science.
