Are you a high school student thinking about Computing as a major and a career? Are you employed full time and considering a career change? If so, there are many good reasons for considering the Computing major at the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh.  We offer two distinct emphases with the major: the Computer Science emphasis and the Software Engineering emphasis.   The Computer Science emphasis is one of the select few ABET-accredited Computer Science programs in the state of Wisconsin.   Learn why ABET accreditation makes a difference.

The department has recently completed a project under a National Science Foundation Research Experience for Undergraduates grant. This allowed us to host and provide stipends to eight students for each of three summers. They worked on a variety of research projects that explored the common theme of open source software development in online computer science learning environments.

You can read more about the project.
