What are the prerequisites for the BSE'25 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.
