Computer Science & Engineering (CSE)

Practical challenges. Real-world experience.

With dedicated Christian faculty and a one-of-a-kind work environment, Computer Science & Engineering (CSE) at Taylor University is a unique and challenging program that provides real world experience. Our ABET-Accredited Computer Engineering Program has a 97% job placement rate before graduation.

We offer excellence in and out of the classroom with majors in: Computer EngineeringCybersecurityDigital Media, and Systems Engineering. Our general Computer Science major offers specializations in: Business Information Systems, Graphics, Artificial Intelligence, Systems, Scientific Computing, and Software Programming. You can study what you love and get a job with places like Walmart Corporate, Chick-fil-A, Eli Lilly and Company, Lockheed Martin, Wycliffe Bible Translators, and Sentry Data Systems.

Taylor’s CSE Faculty will also prepare you to think about your work from an ethical and theological standpoint:

In a pluralistic society, when you are working with all kinds of people who don’t share your exact views or faith, there has to be a way to express your ethics in a way that everyone understands. In using technology, it changes how we think and view our world . . . We should pay close attention to something so powerful that it changes your view of the world.” –Dr. Jeff Cramer, CSE professor

No matter where you want to go next with your degree—corporate, non-profit, missions, graduate school—Taylor’s CSE program can get you there. Visit our department website for more information.
