Computer Science and Engineering (CSE)
The Computer Science and Engineering (CSE) Department at Taylor University offers challenging, real-world courses in the following degree options.
CSE Degrees & Majors
You can choose between a Bachelor of Arts (BA) or a Bachelor of Science (BS) Degree in computer science. The BA degree is designed to provide a solid background in the field for those wishing to immediately enter a career in computer science or related fields. The BS degree includes additional theory and research courses for students wishing to pursue graduate study in computer science. The BS degree with Systems adds the systems component to the existing BA degree.
Computer Science students have the opportunity to choose between five concentrations including business information systems, graphics, intelligent systems (artificial intelligence), scientific computing, and software studio.

Our computer science/new media is an interdisciplinary major offered by the Computer Science and Engineering, Media Communication, and Art Departments. This degree is a hybrid of logic, communication, and the art of design. You can choose between a Bachelor of Arts (BA) or Bachelor of Science (BS) with Systems. The BA degree prepares students in the use of digital tools in the creative arts with a Computer Science understanding. The BS degree with Systems adds the systems component.
Computer Engineering: BS
This ABET Accredited Computer Engineering program is an interdisciplinary major offered jointly by the Computer Science and Engineering, and Physics departments. The major prepares students for computer engineering jobs and/or graduate programs involving robotics, biomedical implants, small instrumentation, telecommunications, supervisory control and data acquisition systems, and other complex hardware-software systems.
Systems Engineering: BS
A systems engineer determines the most effective ways to combine the basic factors of supply chain – people, machines, materials, information, and energy – to make a product or provide a service. You will learn how to increase productivity by improving processes, management of people, methods of business organization, and technology. Systems Engineering focuses on defining customer needs and required functionality while considering the complete problem.
With 25 credit hours in computer science and systems, a student can supplement a major in another field with a minor in computer science.
