Bachelor of Science in Computer Science & Engineering (BS CSE)
Accreditation Statement: The BS CSE program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission (EAC) and by the Computing Accreditation Commission (CAC), both of ABET, Inc. (http://www.abet.org).
The BS CSE program (through the College of Engineering) offers students a general education in engineering, physical sciences, and mathematics, along with intensive study in computer science.
A key aspect of the BS CSE program is a comprehensive set of processes and tools to assess the program and to use the results of the assessments to evaluate various aspects of the program and identify and implement improvements in the program. For details, please see the assessment/evaluation/improvement page. In particular, please note that prior to graduation, BS-CSE majors are required to complete the exit survey, and to take the exit test (described in Section D.2.1 of the assessment/evaluation/improvement page). To sign up for the test, please check with the Advising Office.
Complete information about the program is available in the following pages:

- Bingo sheet: (pdf) (a checklist of course
requirements that you may use to ensure that you have met, or will meet by
the time of graduation, all curricular requirements of the BS CSE program).
If you joined OSU before Su 2012, please see the conversion to semesters page to see the requirements that will apply to you. Also, if you not yet completed the individualized transition plan described in that page, please check with the Advising Office immediately.
- Policies: The Engineering College's Committee on Academic Affairs )CCAA) is responsible for setting policies applicable to all engineering programs including the BS-CSE program. The CCAA Handbook details the current policies. Specifically, pages 32-33 of the handbook list graduation requirements and procedures. Pages 36 onward describe academic standards that students maintain and policies regarding probation, dismissal, and reinstatement. Briefly, students are required to maintain MPHR and CPHR of 2.0 or above; failure to do so, as detailed in the handbook, may result in probation or dismissal from the program, the college, or the university.
Students may access their Degree Audit Report (DAR) on-line at the University Registrar's site. The DAR is an up-to-date list of courses completed toward the degree and courses yet-to-be taken. The Advising Report available at the same site may also be useful.
