Computer Science and Information Systems at IPFW

The Bureau of Labor Statistics predicts an increase in the demand for graduates with degrees in computer science and information systems. Our students explain, in this 6 minute video, why you should study computer science or information systems, and our degree options. Three of our departmental faculty members share advice for choosing your degree, and discuss our strengths, including our Computer Science program which is accredited by the Computing Accreditation Commission of ABET, Our students discuss what projects are like, and how they knew computer science or information systems was the best choice for their career goals.

Information about annual student enrollment and student graduation data for the Bachelor of Science (B.S.) with a Major in Computer Science program can be found at the IPFW Statistical Reports website.

For an in-depth look at our computer science department and degree programs, to watch in-depth interviews of our faculty and students, or to view the campus from the perspective of a CS or IS major, visit our Computer Science Department video gallery.

The IPFW Computer Science Department endeavors to provide a dynamic learning community that promotes student achievement in computer science and attracts both top students and top employers. The department maintains close relationships with members of the community through the Professional Advisory Board, alumni relations, and K-12 outreach programs.

IPFW ACM Team Wins 5th Place at Regional Competition

November 3, 2013

Congratulations to IPFW’s competitive programming teams, who recently participated in the Association for Computing Machinery's International Collegiate Programming Contest! Our top team did very well, placing in the top 10% of teams from non-Ph.D. institutions. They also beat over half of the teams from Ph.D.-granting institutions! This performance earned them the 5th place overall at our site (one of four sites in the region), putting us "on the podium" in the company of Notre Dame, Hope College, and two teams from the University of Michigan.
