Bachelor of Science in Computer Science
A total of 180 quarter credits are required to graduate, including 60 upper-division credits. Requirements include:
Academic Progression Model requires students to maintain a 2.5 OSU GPA and earn 65% of the credits they attempt at OSU. College-specific progression standards apply to all students in the College of Engineering. These standards relate to staying in good academic standing within your major and are different from staying in good standing with OSU.
The Software Engineering path prepares students for the field of software engineering. Students take SE 201, SE 303, SE 467/8, and electives such as machine learning, defense against the dark arts, mobile software development, cloud application development, and network security.
The Software Entrepreneurship path prepares students to start their own software business or join a software startup. Students take ECON 201, BA 260, CS 466, CS 492, CS 478 and electives such as accounting, managing organizations, intro to financial management and project management.
All information is a sample plan and may be tailored to meet each individual student’s academic background, needs and goals. All information is subject to change.
A degree pathway is important to student success. To help you explore your major coursework and for you to begin the process of creating an individualized academic plan, we have created a sample four-year plan for the Computer Science major. These plans also include academic and co-curricular opportunities ideas for each academic year.
This is a sample plan intended for informational purposes only. Students will work with their OSU academic advisor to create degree plan that works best for each student based around unique interests, goals and transfer work.
