They promote a caring community of staff and faculty members, students, administrators and trustees who, in keeping with their values, work together to fulfill their mission.
The Department of Computer Science and Engineering will impact the information age as a national leader in computing research and education. They will prepare computing graduates who are highly sought after, productive, and well-respected for their work, and who contribute to new developments in computing. They will give students in other disciplines an appropriate foundation in computing for their education, research, and experiences after graduation, consistent with computing's increasingly fundamental role in society. In their areas of research focus, they will contribute key ideas to the development of the computing basis of the information age, advancing the state of the art for the benefit of society, the State of Ohio, and The Ohio State University.
The Computer Science Department is located in the College of Arts and Sciences. The department offers Bachelors, Masters, and Doctorate degrees. The Department has an exceptional faculty that does research in many forefront areas of computer science including artificial Intelligence, databases and bioinformatics, computer architecture, gaming, graphics, machine vision, operating systems, networks, cryptography and security, software engineering, programming languages, quantum computing, theoretical computer science, and scientific computing. There is also research in the social aspects of computing and learning communities. They have programs in Stillwater and also in Tulsa, Oklahoma at the OSU-Tulsa campus. Most of the courses in Tulsa are taught in the evening to accommodate those who work.
The mission of the Department of Computer Science is to teach and conduct research in computer science and to provide service to Old Dominion University, the Commonwealth of Virginia, the United States of America, and the international community. Pursuant to this mission, the faculty of the Department of Computer Science:
offers programs of study that produce graduates with Bachelor of Science(B.S.), Master of Science(M.S.),Doctor of Philosophy(Ph.D.) degrees in computer science, and a Master's degree in computer engineering.
conducts research in computer science and publishes results of that research in the open scientifc and engineering literature,
teaches courses in computer science required by students seeking degrees in other departments and disciplines within Old Dominion University,
participates in the governance of the Department of Computer Science, the College of Sciences, and Old Dominion University, and
takes part in the work of professional societies and peer review panels.
