Computer science professionals are in high demand. The ODU BSCS program can prepare you to thrive in software development, computer science, and other related professions or graduate programs. Gain exposure to the basis of computer science in mathematics, logic, and engineering, as well as the experimental and design aspects of the computer science discipline. Explore more specialized topics such as network and database administration, information security analysis, and more. BSCS program graduates are equipped to apply their knowledge to related computing domains and ready to meet new technical challenges in the field.
Students acquire a strong foundation in computer science for careers in the professional workforce, academic research, and entrepreneurship. Courses are provided in both live (face to face) and online formats, providing flexibility and exposure to modern communication and collaborative environments.
ODU Computer Science majors are the problem solvers of the future. Leveraging a unique academic computational infrastructure, students learn emerging software development approaches through theory-centric and application-centric coursework. The capstone course sequence is mentored by multi-disciplinary groups of faculty and industry experts. Accelerated linked programs (BS to MS) and undergraduate research are popular paths, with multiple scholarships aimed at diverse populations. The educational focal points are community, communication, career, and student success.
