Undergraduate Programs

The Department of Computer Science and Engineering offers degrees in two programs:

The mission of the Department of Computer Science and Engineering is to develop the human and intellectual resources needed to meet the future technological challenges in the field of computing. This includes developing computer scientists and computer engineers for positions of leadership in industry, government, and academia. It also means performing basic, applied and multi-disciplinary research as well as coordinating and cooperating with other parts of the System to enhance the effectiveness of educational resources. Likewise, the Department of Computer Science and Engineering provides the intellectual leadership and technology in the computing field required by the university, the state, and the nation.

Appointments with an academic advisor can be made by calling 979-845-4087.

Change of Major to Computer Science or Computer Engineering

You must submit an online application if you wish to be considered for a change of major to Computer Science (CPSC) or Computer Engineering–CS track (CECN) from other majors at Texas A&M University.

  • Change of Major Application for CPSC and CECN - Fall 2017 (coming soon) (Deadline for full consideration: April 15, 2017).

Applications received after the deadline cannot be guaranteed full consideration. Decisions are made after a review of grades at the end of the semester. Applicants will be contacted via email at their TAMU email address.

We recommend that students interested in change of major review the general information that we provide--see the Undergraduate Transfers link in the sidebar to the right of this page.
