North Dakota State University has offered Computer Science since 1973. The first courses were offered in the Division of Mathematical Sciences and the Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (now the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering). A Bachelor of Science degree in Computer Science first was offered in 1977, the Master of Science degree in Computer Science was added in 1979 and the Ph.D. program in Computer Science began in 1986. The Department began the Management Information Systems (MIS) program in 1988. Graduate programs in Software Engineering were launched in 2002, including; Certificate, Master of Science, and Ph.D. curriculums. A graduate certificate in Electronic Commerce first was first offered in 2002. Most recently, in 2009, an online ‘distance education’ professional Master’s degree program was initiated.
Welcome to Northern Kentucky University, a growing metropolitan university of more than 15,000 students on a thriving suburban campus near Cincinnati. While they are one of the fastest growing universities in Kentucky, their professors still know their students' names. And while growth in numbers and reputation is wonderful, they are not satisfied with this success. Not only are they attracting talented students and faculty, but they're also recruiting a distinguished set of lecturers. Their main objective is graduating talented students who will become the leaders of tomorrow. Ready to lead through their efforts in the community and their ties to numerous local businesses, they are not only molding students, they are helping to shape and expand the ever-changing world into which they will graduate.
Originally established in 1905, Northwest Missouri State University is a state-assisted, four-year regional university that also offers graduate degree programs. Northwest is a true advocate of hands-on experience. For instance, in their Horace Mann Lab School students majoring in education get a true inside view of what teaching is all about. Northwest offers several other opportunities for hands-on experiences including internships, the University farm for agriculture majors, on-campus radio and television stations and volunteer work. Northwest currently has around 7,000 students. This size of campus offers great opportunities for students to succeed socially, as well as academically. With a student to teacher ratio of 21 to 1, students never feel like a number and receive personalized attention from faculty. The mission of the Department of Computer Science/Information Systems is to develop and enhance an individual's professional competence in the areas of computer and related technologies.
Northwestern University combines innovative teaching and pioneering research in a highly collaborative environment. It provides students and faculty exceptional opportunities for intellectual, personal and professional growth. Northwestern is recognized both nationally and internationally for the quality of its educational programs at all levels. U.S. News & World Report consistently ranks the University's undergraduate programs among the best in the country.
