College of Computing, Engineering and Construction (Undergraduate) – (School of Computing):

New Courses, Courses Changes, & Programs of Study (4 packages)

03/07/19: Passed

03/08/19: Approved

Log Number: 201808-53

School of Computing – Undergraduate


Add a new degree-major program

Bachelor of Science - Computer Science Major


Summary of the changes:

The School of Computing has been offering the Computer Science program as a concentration under a generic major titled "Computer & Information Sciences". To respond to the requests of employers, students and parents, the faculty of the School of Computing voted to elevate each of the 4 concentrations to stand-alone majors. Phase 3 of the new programs approval process was completed (Package# 10808-113). The BOT granted the approval on January 17, 2019 (phase 4, see attached). The attached Computer Science program was approved by the School's curriculum committee and faculty in their September 14, 2018 meeting. The program's length remains at 120 credit hours. The program of study includes two new courses, COP3XXX Intro to Databases and CDA3XXX Computer Architecture and Organization. They will replace COP4710 Data Modeling and CDA3101/L Introduction to Computer Hardware/Lab in the old program. The program also includes changes to the title, description, learning objectives, prerequisites and/or number of credits for the following courses: COP2220 Computer Science I; COP3503 Computer Science II; CIS3253 Legal & Ethical Issues in Computing; COT3100 Computational Structures; COP3530 Data Structures; CNT4504 Computer Networks and Distributed Processing; COP3404 Intro to Systems Software; COT3210 Computability and Automata; CEN4010 Software Engineering; CAP4630 Intro To Artificial Intelligence; COT4400 Analysis of Algorithms; COP4620 Construction of Language Translators. We plan to start offering the new program in Fall 2019.
