Computer Science at North Georgia

Beginning January 2013, the Department of Computer Science will operate as a separate academic unit from the former Department of Math & CS, and I will be serving as the first Department Head of Computer Science (interim) at the new, consolidated university. The new Department of Computer Science will house Bachelor’s degree programs in computer science and computer information systems, two minors, and the Associate’s degree in computer science.

From our first computer science graduates in 1980, to our newest concentrations in Information Assurance & Security and Mobile & Web App Programming, computer science has a proud tradition at North Georgia. Our graduates have gone into exciting careers at: Blizzard Entertainment, IBM, Adobe, AT&T, Equifax, ADP, CDC, HP, MetLife, Norfolk Southern, UPS, the US Army, and in countless other industries and government, non-profit, and education organizations worldwide.

Our faculty hold Ph.D.s in computer science from the University of Kentucky, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, UGA, Georgia State, etc., and have industry experience in biometric security, software development, IT leadership, and more.

With record enrollment of over 360 CS & CIS majors across four campuses, there’s never been a better time to be a part of Computer Science at North Georgia.
