Welcome to Computer Science
Welcome to the School of Computer Science at the University of Oklahoma. We are a dynamic and exciting academic unit housed within the College of Engineering. We encourage you to find out more about our programs, research activities and outreach through our web pages. We also encourage you to contact us and come visit us on campus.
Graduate instruction and research in computer science began in 1969 at the University of Oklahoma with the creation of a unit called Information and Computing Sciences. This unit was under the direct supervision of the Provost until 1972, when it became part of the College of Engineering. An undergraduate program in computer science was added in 1976, and computer science became an integral part of the School of Electrical Engineering, which was later renamed as the School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science. The first MS degree in computer science was awarded in 1972, the first PhD in 1973, and the first undergraduate degree in 1979-80.
The Bachelor of Science in Computer Science program is accredited by the Computing Accreditation Commission of ABET, abet.org.
