Missouri University of Science and Technology
From the operating software we use on a daily basis to the security of our critical infrastructures, computer scientists develop ways to solve problems, process information, and secure our future. Computer programmers harness the technology of our world, making computers continually innovative and limitlessly functional.
Computer Science is the development of algorithms to solve real-world problems in a mechanized way. Computer scientists write programs to control computer systems and work on applications that use computers. They develop video games, systems, and controllers. They also work in data security, internet networking, bioinformatics, and artificial intelligence.
Where do computer scientists work?
Graduates in computer science can work as database administrators for virtually any technological corporation, develop cutting-edge applications for mobile devices, automate manufacturing processes, or generate an interface for astronauts to monitor conditions on the International Space Station.
Missouri S&T's Computer Science program is among the first to be designated as a National Center of Academic Excellence in Information Assurance Research. As such, it is accredited by the National Security Agency, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, the Committee on National Security Systems, and the Information Access Division of the National Institute of Standards and Technology. The Department's BS program in Computer Science is accredited by the Computing Accreditation Commission of ABET.
Our computer science department is designated a National Center of Academic Excellence in Information Assurance.
CS students have 24-hour access to all the department's advanced computer labs – even as a new student.
S&T has one of the oldest computer science programs in the US. We've been working with computers since the days when they took up entire buildings.
Many CS students work on campus for the university's IT division.
Average starting salary for S&T computer science grads: $60,615.
