In the Department of Computer Science, our goal is to provide an education that prepares you to engineer, design, develop, support and maintain technical software applications and integrated computer-based systems.

You will gain a solid understanding of the principles of computer science and the related skills that enable you to be productive in developing software and networked computer systems of superior quality and robustness. We provide a broad foundation that will allow you to continue to learn and progress in your career and education.

NEW Computer Science Advisement Policies and Procedures

Effective 10 December 2013, the Computer Science department will no longer have a full-time advisor.  Rather, advising appointments will be handled as follows:

All new students seeking general advising are encouraged to attend a weekly information session on Thursdays 9:30 - 10:30 AM (walk-in, no appointment necessary) 

Existing students have the following options, depending on where you take the majority of your courses:

  •        Main Campus – Start by scheduling an appointment with the department secretary by calling 801-626-7929.  Depending on the complexity of the advisement request, you may be referred to one of the Computer Science professors for additional assistance.
  •        Davis Campus – Contact Brad Peterson 801-395-3465 for a late afternoon appointment (Monday-Thursday) at the Davis Campus.
  •        Salt Lake City Campus 7929 so she can book an appointment for you with Ted Cowan down at SLCC.

Graduating students – the process for applying for graduation is now automated.  As long as all requirements are checked off in Cattracks showing 98% (Cattracks will not show 100% until all grades are recorded), you may apply for graduation at the following link:

Catalog Year Changes – Call Anita at 801-626-7929 to make these changes.  Please note:  Your AAS catalog must be the same (or an earlier) year than your BS catalog year.  AAS catalogs expire after 3 years.  BS catalogs expire after 6 years.  All catalog years run summer – spring.  For example:  The 2013-14 AAS catalog begins May 1, 2013 and expires April 30, 2016.  You must graduate with your AAS degree prior to April 2016 and your BS degree prior to April 2019 in order to graduate in the 2013-14 catalogs.  Failure to graduate in timely manner will cause your catalog year to “roll forward” to the next year (and requirements).

Registration Overrides – These are typically processed by the professor teaching the course.  Please try to contact the professor first.  If you are not getting a response back in a reasonable amount of time, please call the secretary at 626-7929 for assistance.
