Why CS At CCU?

Why Coastal Carolina's Computer Science Department?

  1. The Computer Science Department of Coastal Carolina University strives for excellence.
  2. The Theoretical Program of the department received ABET (Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology) in 2002, which is an honor that only seven schools in the state have received.
  3. The department is always expanding and updating to keep students prepared for life in the field after college.
  4. Free student tutors are available to all computer science students. The tutors have set hours in which they are available to assist students with their classes. The tutors provide help for a number of classes, both computer science and non-computer science classes.
  5. Assistance is available from other computer science students in the department, or from professors so that students that need help will always have an available source.
  6. The classes are small so that students are able to have more of a personal relationship with their professor. This is helpful because professors will learn the names of students and students will not feel like just another face in the crowd. As a result, students will be more likely to seek assistance when needed.
  7. Student research opportunities are available. Students may have the opportunity to do substantial research with professors that will will allow them to expand their knowledge in that area and possibly have their work published. In some cases the team of researchers will have the opportunity to participate in conferences, both in and out of the country.
  8. The staff of the department is committed to helping each and every student excel in the field of computer science.
  9. Students will have the opportunity to participate in both on and off campus internships. Many professors in the department receive requests from businesses for students to take place in their internships or to work as a full or part time employee. The career services office often provides students with information about available internships.
  10. By adding three classes to the requirements of the Theoretical program, a minor of Mathematics can be achieved.
  11. By adding two classes to the requirements of the Informations Systems program, a minor of Business Administration can be achieved.
  12. The computer science department has an active chapter of the ACM(Association for Computing Machinery), which has been recognized by the national ACM.
