Why Choose MUCS
Why Choose MUCS
- Millersville University has taught Computer Science classes since 1963. We have offered the degree of Bachelor of Science in Computer Science since 1975. See General Information.
- We are nationally accredited by the Computing Accreditation Board of ABET, www.abet.org.
- Student Information:
- We have a low student/faculty ratio. Computer Science classes will have at most 30 students, usually 20 - 25, in the class (we do not have classes of 50, 75, or 100 like some of the larger Universities).
- Approximately 10% of Computer Science majors are women.
- Every Computer Science course for CS majors at MU is 4 credits. Each can meet in a closed lab. Our teaching laboratories will have only 1 student per computer - no doubling up students per computer during lab sessions.
- Every Computer Science class is taught by a Computer Science Professor (not a graduate teaching assistant).
- Our faculty are Computer Scientists and have earned Doctoral and Master's degrees in Computer Science from the following institutions:
- City University of New York (CUNY)
- Temple University
- University of Delaware
- University of Maryland
- Our faculty
arepracticing Computer Scientists who are active researchers, connected with the larger computer science community, and contributors to the frontiers of the field.
- We have state-of-the-art computer equipment and laboratories.
- We have four computer labs exclusively for Computer Science majors:
- The CSPC computer lab with 27 Workstations running Windows.
- The CSLINUX computer lab with 27 Workstations running Linux.
- The IML (Intelligent Machines lab) lab with computers running Windows, Linux, and Mac OS.
- The Adaptive Computing Lab with systems with specialized equipment for human-computer interfacing applications.
- We have some very challenging advanced
upper levelcourses in Computer Science:
- CS375 - Computer Graphics and Virtual Reality.
- CS395 - Computer Networks.
- CS406 - Topics in Computer Science
- CS415 - Computer and Network Security.
- CS419 - Mobile Application Development.
- CS420 - Software Engineering.
- CS425 - Human Computer Interfacing.
- CS426 - Adaptive Computing.
- CS435 - Compiler Construction.
- CS450 - Artificial Intelligence.
- CS456 - Robotics and Computer Vision.
- CS466 - Database Management Systems
- CS467 - Analysis of Algorithms.
- CS475 - 3D Game Prog. and Computer Animation.
- CS476 - Parallel Programming.
- We have received nearly $800,000 in National Science Foundation (NSF) and other external agency funding.
- Because we do not have a graduate degree program, advanced projects are integrated into the curriculum and are focused on the undergraduate student.
- Almost all graduate school bound Computer Science majors
engagein an advanced project at some level during their years at Millersville.
- Our graduates have gone to graduate school and earned Ph.D. and M.S. degrees in Computer Science at quality Universities nationwide.
- Our graduates have been hired by quality corporations and institutions nationwide.
- The University provides free tutorial services for computer science classes.
- Millersville University has a very successful Cooperative Education program which offers qualified students the opportunity to gain invaluable experience by working in a salaried job in business and industry during their undergraduate years. A coop experience can foster additional motivation in
study, personal development, and a significant edge when seeking permanent employment.
- The Computer Science department accommodates and fosters cultural diversity.
- All resources, time, funding, and energy are focused on doing one thing extremely well, namely:
To Provide an Excellent Undergraduate Computer Science Degree Program.
