Computer Science

Leading the Way in Computer Science Education

In 1961, the University of Dayton became one of the first schools in the country to develop an undergraduate program in Computer Science.

We offer Ph.D. and Master Degrees in Computer Science and two programs leading to the Bachelor of Science degree: Computer Science and Computer Information Systems.

Our students are hired by companies such as Procter & Gamble, AT&T Communications, CompuServe, Dayton Power & Light, JPMorgan Chase, Teradata, NexSens Tech, General Electric, NASA Space Flight Center, Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, LexisNexis, Reynolds and Reynolds, Microsoft, Amazon, Google, and many others.

The Bachelor of Science in Computer Science is ABET accredited.
Preliminary Results: Computer Science Top-Paid Master’s Discipline
Computer and information sciences is the top-paid Class of 2019 discipline at the master’s-degree level, according to preliminary results reported to the National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE).

New Facilities Slated to Open in 2021

The Department of Computer Science will relocate during the 2020-21 academic year to a newly renovated facility in the former Music and Theatre Building. The 58,000-square-foot project will include new classroom, laboratory and office spaces, as well as an enclosed walkway to connect the facility to Kettering Labs. Levin Porter Architects of Miamisburg designed the facility; Sidney-based Ferguson Construction Co. will oversee construction. The new space is expected to be occupied in January 2021.
