Thank you for your interest in the Computer Science Department at Binghamton University. We offer Baccalaureate, Masters and PhD degrees in Computer Science. Careers in computing remain in very high demand and offer not only the comforts of a high-paying job, but also the intellectual challenges of a creative and productive profession.
As one of the earliest nationally accredited Computer Science programs at the Baccalaureate level in the nation and in the state of New York (since 1988), we strive hard to offer a high quality, state-of-the-art education in Computer Science at an affordable cost. That same commitment to quality continues in our MS and PhD programs. We remain steadfast in our goal to develop leaders for each successive generation of computer scientists, consistent with our national ranking as a top-class public university.
The CS undergraduate and graduate curriculum spans the entire gamut of computing, starting from hardware to large software systems and includes everything in-between. Many of our faculty are well-known researchers in their respective fields and support doctoral and highly qualified MS students with graduate research assistantships. Research opportunities are also available for qualified undergraduate students in a new 10,000 sq. ft. CS research laboratory.
The success of our BS, MS and PhD programs is evident in our long and sustained placement record of our graduates, in the very high quality of research publications by our students and faculty at all sorts of competitive venues, and in the form of competitive research funding for our faculty from a wide variety of funding agencies, with about $ 2.5 million in new research funding in the past year. At this time, we have 482 CS undergraduate majors, 220 Master's and 50 PhD students, attesting to the strong demand for our programs. The Computer Science Department at Binghamton University also offers a dual diploma program with two top Turkish universities, culminating in a BS degree in Information Systems. Currently, this program has about 48 Information Systems majors. Detailed information about all of our degree programs and pertinent contact information are available elsewhere on the CS web pages.
We hope that you will enjoy the challenges and rewards of our state-of-the-art undergraduate and graduate programs in Computer Science.
