About Us

A Bachelor of Science degree (B.S.) in Computer Science prepares students for careers in virtually any industry or to continue on with graduate study in Computer Science and many other fields. Computer science students learn to approach problems from a computational (algorithmic) point of view, and this approach to problem solving often leads to better and more general solutions. Software systems, information technology, and large-scale data applications are core technologies in every area and the applications continue to grow with software and information systems becoming more and more embedded in the fabric of everyday life. These systems are essential tools in science and engineering, for business and finance, government, communications, medicine, and entertainment. Software systems make the world go round and smart devices, such as phones, tablets, glasses, wearable devices, medical implants are ubiquitous. As a result, computer science has grown from a specialized field to an independent, broadly based area that studies all aspects of the use and understanding of software systems, information, and computational processes. Students studying B.S. in Computer Science at the University of Wyoming can study for the B.S. degree in Computer Science and have the option to focus their studies by taking a concentration in Business, Big Data, or the Cybersecurity certificate. The Cybersecurity certificate captures core technical cyber security foundations and principles, from databases and networks to advanced threat detection and mitigation. All of the Computer Science concentrations lead to a Bachelor of Science in Computer Science and all programs are ABET accredited.
