The mission of LSU's undergraduate computer science program is to provide students with a strong and versatile foundational understanding of computer science through a combination of theoretical knowledge and practical skills. Students will be able to draw from their skill sets to solve challenging problems and will possess the fundamental understanding required to build upon their knowledge as the field of computer science rapidly grows and evolves. Graduates of the program will be able to use concepts such as abstraction and complexity analysis to find innovative solutions to problems and orchestrate evolutionary change as applied to the development of software systems and emerging applications.
