Message from the Chair

UW-Parkside's Computer Science department provides a dynamic, energetic environment for students and faculty alike.  In recent years, we have been adding new courses and programs.  The department houses an undergraduate major in Computer Science (CS), a master's program in Computer and Information Systems (MSCIS), minors in CS and Web Development, and certificates in Unix System Administration, Cyber Security, Mobile Application Development, and World Wide Web publishing. 

Our CS major currently has over 180 students and we are growing every year.  CS graduates are placing into positions at leading regional companies including: SC Johnson, EPIC, JohnsonDiversey, Snap-On, Northwestern Mutual and a host of smaller companies.  In recent years, some of our graduates have gone farther afield,  for example, working at Microsoft in Redmond, Washington or IBM in Maryland.

The CS programs strengths include:

  • highly educated, professional instructors. 
  • small class sizes.  Most of our classes have only 20-25 students.
  •  
  • great internship opportunities.  The majority of our students accept summer, semester or full year internships before they graduate.  The practical work experience they gain is invaluable when seeking fulltime employment.

Our MSCIS graduate program is small but high quality.  Computer and Information Systems is a blend of technical, theoretical and business knowledge and skills.  The program is taught by faculty from both Computer Science and Business.  Similar to our undergraduate program, our MSCIS graduates frequently find employment with major regional companies.

The department's minors and certificate programs are oriented towards students who want to gain foundational skills in specific areas without pursuing an entire degree.  Of special note are the recent additions of a certificate in Mobile Application Development.

  There is a strong sense of community within the CS Department.  We are working hard and working together to develop computing professionals for the 21st century.
