BS in Computer and Information Science The Ohio State University



Course info


Computer and information science (CIS) focuses on the development of software and the uses of software to solve practical problems and to support and improve productivity, health, happiness and safety in today's society. Topics studied include algorithms and data structures, programming languages, computer architecture, computer graphics, operating systems, software engineering systems analysis, database systems, artificial intelligence, information security, and networking.

A computing professional analyzes a situation in an application domain, such as biology and medicine, business, engineering, law and public policy, science, and sociology; carefully specifies the problems to be addressed; and then designs, evaluates, implements and tests computer-based solutions to those problems.

Program objectives

It is the intent of the faculty that within the first few years after graduation:

  • Graduates of the program will be employed in the computing profession, and will be engaged in learning, understanding and applying new ideas and technologies as the field evolves
  • Graduates with an interest in, and aptitude for, advanced studies in computing will have completed, or be actively pursuing, graduate studies in computing
  • Graduates will be informed and involved members of their communities and responsible engineering and computing professionals

Career Prospects in Computer and Information Science

Because computing is essential in all areas of society, the demand for people skilled in the computing field continues to grow. Contrary to popular misconception, off-shoring of (lower-level) IT jobs is a secondary factor in job growth for the computing profession. Recent Bureau of Labor Statistics projections for U.S. job growth in the next decade show computing jobs, of the sort CIS graduates might take, comprising the top two-and half of the top ten-positions in the rankings for jobs requiring an undergraduate degree. This is after accounting for the impact of off-shoring.

Computer hardware and software vendors hire CIS graduates in areas such as hardware and software product development, quality assurance, customer support, sales and marketing, documentation, and training.
