Why Study Computer Science at UND?

UND offers undergraduate programs that are truly unique with opportunities to:

  • Create web and mobile apps.
  • Develop computer animations and virtual reality systems.
  • Analyze imagery and data from unmanned and manned aircraft systems.
  • Influence the design of systems for aerospace.
  • Develop expertise in cybersecurity, big data, software engineering, information technology, computer animation, and game design.

B.S. or B.A.?

The B.S. in Computer Science provides the strongest mathematical and scientific background. It is recommended for students who intend to pursue graduate studies or to seek employment involving technical or scientific applications of computing.

The B.A. in Computer Science has more flexibility with fewer requirements relating to science and mathematics, but with additional requirements for courses in the humanities. This degree program is recommended for students seeking a broader-based liberal arts education.
