Department of Computer Science

Computer science is a discipline that works with processing information in digital computers — and possibly quantum computers in the future. It is the integration of principles and technologies required to collect, store, access and process information. In general, computer science focuses on designing algorithms for solving complex problems. The Virginia Commonwealth University Department of Computer Science (CS) covers core areas of computer science with a focus on data science and cybersecurity. Computer science graduates are in high demand and enjoy excellent employment opportunities after graduation.
