Message from the Head

Welcome and thank you for visiting the OSU Department of Computer Science.  My name is Roger Mailler, and it is my sincere pleasure to be a professor in the department and have the privilege of serving as its Head.
Our department strives to provide a welcoming, energetic, and supportive environment that prepares students for careers in the exciting and fast-paced world of Computer Science.  The faculty includes world renowned educators and researchers that are committed to delivering an outstanding educational and research experience for our students.  We offer a wide array of courses that provide essential skills needed by all computer scientists and allow our students to explore new and emerging technologies such as cyber-physical systems, artificial intelligence, and computer security. Our Bachelor of Science degree program in Computer Science is accredited by ABET.
I invite you to explore the wonderful opportunities in our department by browsing our website and encourage you to contact me if you have any questions or need further information.
All the very best to you and Go Pokes!


The Computer Science Department has a three-pronged mission:
To pursue and to publicize research projects in computer science in order to extend the present state of knowledge in the computer field.
To educate students in all program levels in order to provide them with the knowledge, interest, and ethics to become productive members of the computing profession.
To serve as an initial and continuing source of education in the field of computer science.


The Computer Science facilities' computing and presenting capacity is embodied in a server room, iMac based Mobile Apps Laboratory, Seminar room, Conference room, Student Collaboration room, and Server supported Department Lounge. Collectively these areas provide across the board support for the activities of Students and Faculty. Coupling the capacity with the research, the department is an actively growing department advancing Computer Science.

50th Anniversary

On the weekend of September 20 & 21, 2019, current and past associates of the Department of Computer Science gathered to celebrate the 50th birthday of the Department.  Attendees came from points far-and-wide, including Great Britain (Lennie Norris) and Alaska (Rob Sherry), and from times spanning the present back to before the Department of CS was formed.
