Computer Science


The Department of Computer Science maintains a rigorous, state-of-the-art program with seven full-time faculty and typically between 150 and 250 majors. Read more... We offer research and advanced undergraduate elective courses in computer graphics, artificial intelligence, networks, software engineering, databases, human-computer interaction, game programming, and parallel processing. The hardware and software in our laboratories are continually updated to support our student and faculty needs. By pursuing a Bachelor of Science degree, you can prepare for a rewarding, challenging career in business, industry, or government, or establish a solid foundation for graduate studies and research.

Millersville University began teaching programming courses in 1963 and the Computer Science degree was approved in 1975. The Department has graduated over 1,500 majors who have become active, contributing members of the computing profession.

MUCS Students Receive Summer Research Fellowships

Millersville Computer Science students have been active participants in the Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship (SURF) program at NIST in Gaithersburg, MD for over a decade. This year, three students (Dan Rabiega, Tyler Helsel, and Jason Zimmerman) have been awarded fellowships and will spend the summer engaging in projects and research in laboratories at NIST. Their assigned projects include "Efficient Implementation of Irregular Algorithms on GPUs", "Automating the Testing of Immersive Visualizations in a CAVE", and "Standard XML representations of National Software Reference Library (NSRL) Data". We look forward to hearing about their experiences!
