You’ve got hardware on the brain and dream in code. When the next life-transforming app comes along, you don’t ask, “How do I use it,” but question, “How does it work?” And if there isn’t an app for that, you wonder, “Why not?” and you make it.

In Bucknell's computer science and engineering program, you'll learn the skills needed to build the next generation of hardware and software to make international business transactions a breeze, advanced health care research possible and everyone's life a little easier.

You, too, could end up winning an Academy Award. Within Bucknell's liberal arts environment, your curiosity can take you far - Hollywood, Silicon Valley or wherever you want to bring your talents to bear.

Did You Know?


Bucknell was an early adopter of using computers in undergraduate education (1957).

Students can choose from among three computer science degrees: 1) the Bachelor of Arts in the College of Arts and Sciences, 2) the Bachelor of Science in the College of Arts and Sciences and 3) the Bachelor of Science in Computer Science and Engineering, which is offered by the College of Engineering.

CSCI 203 is an innovative introduction to computer science that explores computer science's Big Questions such as "What is computer Science?", "What is computational thinking?", and "Are there well-defined computational tasks that we can't compute?"

The computer science core courses focus on principles and hands-on experience. All except one of these core courses have a weekly laboratory where students learn and refine their skills.

Bucknell’s computer science program is supported by state-of-the-art computing laboratories that are open 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Computer science courses make use of the College of Engineering's extensive workstation environment.

Hands-on Experience


Study Abroad

Make the World Your Classroom

Students often have the flexibility to study abroad. In recent years, computer science students have studied in Australia, Barbados, England, Ireland, Italy, Scotland, and Spain.

Research

Undergraduate Research

Students have opportunities to conduct research in computer science including software engineering, computer networking, security, compiler design, data mining, and bioinformatics.

Theory made real

Senior Design Project

In their senior year, student teams investigate, design, and implement a senior design project with an on-campus or off-campus customer.
