ABET Accreditation

The School of Computing at the University of Georgia is proud to announce that our Bachelor of Science in Computer Science is accredited by the Computing Accreditation Commission of ABET,, under the commission's General Criteria. ABET is a nonprofit, non-governmental agency that accredits college and university programs in the disciplines of applied science, computing, engineering, and engineering technology. ABET is guided by industry, government, and academic constituents. This accreditation validates the School of Computing commitment to providing an education that meets the highest standards of the profession. 



The School of Computing is multi-faceted, aiming to serve our students, faculty, and community alike. Our overriding priorities are to: 

  • To offer rigorous undergraduate and graduate degree programs for students seeking careers or further study in the field of computer science. 
  • To support faculty research efforts in applied, theoretical, and experimental aspects of computer science, 
  • To co-operate with other UGA departments and schools on interdisciplinary research, instructional, and service programs; 
  • To engage in outreach to the local community and beyond so that computer science can have a positive impact on peoples' lives. 

Program Educational Objectives

The Bachelor of Science in Computer Science (BS-CS) degree has the following program educational objectives:

1. Graduates will be successfully employed in the computing profession or will be actively pursuing advanced degrees in computing or a related discipline.
