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), and minors in CS and Web Development. In addition, we also offer certificates in Unix System Administration, Cyber Security, Mobile Application Development, and World Wide Web Publishing.

Our CS major currently has over 200 students and we are growing every year. CS graduates are placing into positions at leading regional companies including: SC Johnson, EPIC, TriCore, Snap-On, Northwestern Mutual, Jockey, and a host of other companies and organizations. In recent years, some of our graduates have obtained positions nationally. Some examples include:  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 25-30 students
  • Great internship opportunities.
    • The majority of our students accept summer or full year internships before they graduate.
    • The practical work experience they gain is invaluable when seeking full-time 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 regional and international 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.  

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