Quality classroom experiences
BGSU Computer Science fosters a comprehensive and collaborative student-centered learning environment. All computer science major classes are taught by dedicated faculty, not graduate assistants, and are offered in small class sizes. Highly qualified professors provide for a strong, interactive, and practical learning environment for students to gain the necessary expertise to succeed in high-demand occupations.
The Computer Science Department at BGSU was the first of its kind in the state of Ohio when it was established in 1969.
Career - what can you do with a computational data science degree?
Computer science majors are required to complete one departmentally approved co-op experience. Students receive academic credit, valuable practical experience, and good pay for co-op experiences while growing both personally and professionally.
The computer science major includes a strong set of core courses designed to provide students with a broad base of computing concepts and skills as well as a large selection of specialized elective courses. The computational data science specialization gives students a strong foundation in machine learning, database management, and high performing computing, while providing a statistics background. In addition, programming projects in computer science courses give students experience working in a variety of computing environments.
- Introduction to Machine Learning
- Parallel Computing
- Database Management Systems
- Python for Computational & Data Science
Computer science majors must meet one of the following admission criteria: an SAT math score of 550 or higher or an ACT math score of 22 or higher. Students not meeting these criteria will need to take appropriate math course(s) at the University before declaring their major to Computer Science. Many high schools do not offer courses in computer programming or computer science, and incoming students are not expected to have such a background.
Academic Investment in Mathematics and Science (AIMS) program
All AIMS Scholars have a unique opportunity to strengthen their academic skills and to increase their likelihood of academic success in college.
The AIMS program has two scholarship packages with distinct requirements.
Bowling Green State University [BGSU] is accredited by the Higher Learning Commission. BGSU has been accredited by the Higher Learning Commission since 01/01/1916. The most recent reaffirmation of accreditation was received in 2012-2013. Questions should be directed to the Office of Institutional Effectiveness.
The Bachelor of Science in Computer Science program is accredited by the Computing Accreditation Commission of ABET, https://www.abet.org
