        Department of CompSciLogoWeb

The Computer Science major at UW-Whitewater complements a robust technological presence on campus, which includes programs in Information Technology and Media Arts & Game Development.

The major is geared toward students who want to pursue careers in software engineering, commercial software production, systems programming, Web development, and network, database, or computer design. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, half of the 10 fastest-growing careers for college graduates are computer science-related.

The Computer Science Department offers a liberal arts major, leading to a Bachelor of Science with or Bachelor of Arts in computer science. There are two emphasis options: a general (requires a minor) or comprehensive emphasis.

Sample 4-year plans are posted in the Student Resources page.

In addition, the department offers several minors/emphases for students who would like a stronger background in computer science to complement their chosen major. A Master’s Degree in Computer Science will be offered in Fall 2017.

Congratulations Alex Hall!

Alex Hall Headshot for web

March 2015: He has received a National Science Foundation Research Fellowship for Computer Graphics and Visualization. Alex is a 2013 graduate of our program, currently pursuing a Ph.D. degree at the University of California-Berkeley. While attending UW-W, Alex participated in undergraduate research projects including Interactive Degree Planner with Drs. Gunawardena, Samaranayake and Thao and NSF supported Computer Visioning research with Dr. Mukherjee.

We have been approved to start a Master's Degree program in Computer Science at UW-Whitewater. Our webpage is now active:

Research/Professional Development Opportunities

If you are interested in professional development opportunities, are currently a student majoring in a STEM field and an underrepresented minority student (see info. below), there are opportunities available for you. Please contact either Catherine Chan or Juk Bhattacharyya in the Office of Undergraduate Research.
Office of Undergraduate Research received a grant from WiscAMP that aims to provide professional development opportunities (e.g., conference attendance/presentation) for under-represented minority students (African American/Black, Latino/Hispanic, Native American or Alaskan Native, Hawaiian Native or other Pacific Islander) in STEM.
In fall 2016, one of the activities we have planned is to take students to attend/present at the LSMCE conference on Oct 28 – 29, 2016. Apart from an opportunity to present their work (or attend presentations by fellow students), there are also workshops/seminars on professional development. In last year’s LSMCE conference, a team of students from Computer Science won the 4th place in student presentations among the more than 100 presentations, some of whom were from Masters level students. I believe this was a great experience for all.
