Declaring Computer Science for BSE'24 Students


Dear Prospective BSE'24 COS Concentrators

We hope that you and your family are safe and healthy in these challenging times. Below please find all the information you will need to declare your  BSE COS concentration and select your fall 2020 courses.   We encourage you to review all the information below and if you have any questions contact the COS Undergraduate Program Team members that are listed below.    Stay well!  


What are the prerequisites for the BSE COS concentrators?   

All students concentrating in computer science must take three prerequisite computer science courses: COS 126, COS 217 and COS 226. The math requirement is automatically fulfilled by BSE candidates through their general BSE degree requirements.) All prerequisite courses must be taken for a letter grade, not PDF.  The three prerequisite computer science courses introduce the core concepts and techniques of the field.  All three are offered every semester.
How do I know if Computer Science is a good fit? 


Where can I find answers to my Computer Science questions online?

A great online source is the Undergraduate Program FAQ.
