at the University of West Florida! We offer Bachelor of Science and Master of Science degrees in Computer Science with several specialization options, minors, and certificates. Students in the Computer Science programs enjoy the personal attention of our faculty members in all facets of their education.
Welcome to the Computer Science Department, part of the University of West Florida School of Science and Engineering. After the Fall 2009 term, computer science, along with computer information systems, electrical engineering, computer engineering, mathematics and statistics, physics and software engineering will come together in our new four-story, showcase building, designed to fuel the imagination.
We offer Bachelor of Science and Master in Science degrees in Computer Science with several specialization options, minors, certificates and internships. Students in the Computer Science programs enjoy the personal attention of our faculty members in all facets of their education.
With an average student to teacher ratio of 21:1, students take part in lectures and labs with individual attention from full-time faculty. Undergraduate students are afforded the opportunity to participate in research projects, teaching assistantships, and conferences.
Computer Science is one of the most employable and lucrative careers at the bachelor's level and our alumni are employed across the country at notable companies including Microsoft, Harris, Northrop Grumman, Computer Science Corporation, General Dynamics, and Home Depot, in addition to many local and regional companies
On Sept. 19, 2011, the School of Science and Engineering mourned the loss of one of its valued faculty members, Dr. Ed Rodgers who served the university for 27 years as a professor of Computer Science, including nine years as chairman.
Dr. Rodgers’s professional experience and connections to industry became an invaluable resource to his students, many of whom were able to garner private sector knowledge through special projects. In addition to being a faculty member, he conducted training programs for businesses, governmental agencies, and universities in the U.S., Europe and Asia. His visiting professor assignments abroad included China, Japan, Finland and France. He was also a member of numerous professional organizations including the Institute of Management Science (TIMS), Operations Research Society of America (ORSA), Decision Sciences Institute (DSI) and Association of Computing Machinery (ACM).
In recognition of Dr. Rodgers’s commitment to education, his friends and colleagues have established a memorial fund in his name. Those wishing to pay tribute to him may make a memorial gift by visiting UWF’s giving website. For additional information, please contact Gretchen VanValkenburg at firstname.lastname@example.org.
PENSACOLA-A new iBook, "Developing iOS 5 Applications" was recently released for download in 32 countries, available through iTunes for iPad, through Amazon.com for Kindle, and through Barnesandnoble.com for Nook. This book, authored by Laura J. White, Assistant Professor and Director of Software Engineering in the computer science department, and Janusz Chudzynski, graduate of UWF and coordinator in the Academic Technology Center, contains an introduction to iPhone programming, along with several fun projects through which the reader will learn about iPhone programming, while actually developing applications (apps).
Both individuals have taught iPhone/iPad programming at UWF, and have collaborated on numerous apps available for download from the iTunes App Store, including the free UWF Dining App. Several of their students who have taken the UWF iPhone Programming course also now have apps available for download from the iTunes App Store. Since Chudzynski has a passion for researching and learning new technologies, he is also currently developing a new university course in Android Programming among his many innovative projects.
The Department of Computer Science at the University of West Florida is now accepting applications for the Bachelor of Science in Computer Science, specialization in Cybersecurity at the University of West Florida.
