The Department of Computer Science and Engineering in UAA's College of Engineering offers a Bachelor of Science in Computer Systems Engineering (BS), and a minor in Computer Systems Engineering. The program is a fully-accredited Bachelor of Science in Computer Systems Engineering degree program. Students are introduced to principles of mathematics and physics during the first two years of study along with introductory courses in fundamentals of computer hardware and programming. The third and fourth years consist of upper division courses applicable to computer systems along with computer systems engineering electives in the area of the students' interests. Students complete a project-oriented capstone course where they will apply their knowledge in computer systems engineering to solve challenging problems. Students also take courses on written and oral communication, humanities, social sciences, and fine arts to improve their communication skills and to put their profession into a broader societal context.
The Bachelor of Science in Computer Systems Engineering program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, www.abet.org.
