The Computer Science and Software Engineering programs at UW-Platteville will prepare you for in-demand careers in a growing field.

Computer science is essential in the feasibility, design, and implementation and evaluation of every aspect of computing. The field explores some of the most imaginative and challenging ideas in the history of human intellectual development. The UW-Platteville Computer Science program blends the theory of computer science with the art of programming and analysis, while providing attention to the business, ethical, and moral aspects of computing. Integrated hands-on and laboratory experiences enable you to practice computing with proficiency and integrity.

UW-Platteville's new Computer Science + X degree program gives you more flexibility to pursue a major you are passionate about, while acquiring in-demand computer skills. The interdisciplinary major combines a core curriculum in computer science with most of the major requirement of discipline “X,” so that you can apply the tools of computing as you explore another field of interest. 

UW-Platteville also recently launched a Bachelor of Science in Cybersecurity. The new program is designed to give students hands-on experience and skills they need to prepare for jobs such as a cybersecurity analyst, cybersecurity engineer, and network security specialist. 

The UW-Platteville Software Engineering program, accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, ensures that you will gain extensive experience in the design and development of software systems. Software engineers are in high demand, and courses in this program support real-time embedded systems like those that control appliances, security systems, automobiles, aircraft, and more. Coursework will also ground you in software engineering and prepare you to succeed in any area of software development.

UW-Platteville also collaborates with four other campuses to offer an online degree in applied computing. This program results in a Bachelor of Science in Applied Computing, and all 61 credits are offered completely online.
