Computer science impacts our daily lives in a variety of ways and transforms the way we look at and live in our world. No other science or engineering discipline has had a greater impact in commerce, communication, entertainment, finance, medicine, and social sciences. Instrumental in driving these changes are computer scientists.
Through the Bachelor of Science in Computer Science degree program at Penn State Hazleton, you'll study computation, from its principles and foundations, to its efficient implementation, analysis, and practical use across different areas.
Much more than just programming, the program includes the mathematical foundations that support analyzing, evaluating, and proving the correctness of computational solutions. It also includes specializations such as artificial intelligence, machine learning, cybersecurity, data mining, high-performance computing, computer networks, computer graphics, computer vision, quantum computing, and more.
This curriculum provides students with the skills needed to design, develop, evaluate, and analyze software solutions to a wide spectrum of computational problems and prepares them to be leaders in the rapidly changing field of computing throughout their careers.
