Computer Science (CS) Scholars is a program under the umbrella of the Hal Marcus College of Science and Engineering (HMCSE), which is designed to support high-achieving students based on academic merit.

Program Overview

Students will be an active member of the Association of Computing Machinery (ACM) or the Association of Information Technology Professionals (AITP), required to participate in reading programs, competitions related to the student’s field of specialization within Computer Science and will be encouraged to engage in research with a faculty member or as part of a student group or as an individual study.
