Two students looking at a computer

Computer science is the study of algorithms and problem solving. These problems apply to every scientific, engineering, and mathematical field, making computer scientists relevant in every professional field today. A computer science degree at Oregon State can give you the skills to program a custom low level sensor board all the way up to coordinating cloud datacenters full of servers.

Students can choose from the Computer Systems option (accredited by the Computing Accreditation Commission of ABET, in both Bachelors of Science degrees and in Honors Bachelors of Science degrees), or an applied option including building their own custom curriculum, or minor in computer science.
