Computer science provides you with a sound theoretical background and the opportunities for individual and collaborative exploration of real-world computing problems.
Whether you choose to pursue a B.S. or a B.A. in Computer Science, you'll find yourself working in state-of-the-art labs while mastering programming languages like Python and Java. Once you've built a foundation, your coursework will center on creating solutions. You'll develop robotics applications, create websites, and engineer software. You'll also take courses in a specific niche preparing you for more specialized opportunities when you graduate.
The program gives students the opportunity for hands-on experience while they explore and apply the theoretical underpinnings of the discipline.
In-depth examination of a current topic in artificial intelligence, such as evolutionary computation, artificial neural networks, planning, and gaming.
Cybersecurity is a fast-growing field of IT concerned with reducing organizations' risk of hack or data breach (Wikipedia, 2019).
In-depth examination of a current topic in web development and cloud computing, such as web security, user experience, mobile app development, and web engineering.

Ultimately I want to see students develop the skills and mindset to be successful in their chosen field. To accomplish this I work with students to learn to be independent, critical thinkers and provide real-world context for course assignments to keep students engaged. I always try to help students pursue their passions. Computer science is a great field of exploration and discovery where creativity should be both nurtured and encouraged.
Florida Southern marked a major expansion of its computer science program with construction work underway for the Carole and Marcus Weinstein Computer Sciences Center.
In addition to high-tech classrooms and collaborative learning spaces, the new structure will house a cybersecurity and informatics learning lab in a flagship computer cluster that also includes a virtual cyber range for customized training environments, a logistics center, a workshop for autonomous-vehicle research, an artificial intelligence (AI) and robotics lab, a makerspace workshop, and an esports competition arena.
The Carole and Marcus Weinstein Computer Sciences Center has an estimated completion date of Fall 2020.
The Florida Southern College Computer Science Club is a community of students who all have a passion for technology and computing. Participating in the Association for Computational Machinery’s International Collegiate Programming Competition (ICPC), A global competition sponsored by IBM, that challenges the performance of today’s computer science and engineering students.
