Bachelors 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. The Ohio State University is accredited by the Higher Learning Commission of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools.*


The BS CSE program offers students a general education in engineering, physical sciences, and mathematics, along with intensive study in computer science.

Program Requirements and Details
  • Program Objectives and Outcomes

  • Prerequisites for Admission to Major

  • Curriculum for students first enrolled at Ohio State AU18 and later

  • Curriculum for students first enrolled at Ohio State SU18 and earlier

  • Majors must select a specialization option. Requirements for the specialization options may dictate core and technical elective choices.

  • Prerequisite Chart for CSE Core and Core Choice classes (does not include CSE 591X or upper-level technical electives)

  • Students may access their Degree Audit online through Buckeye Link. The Degree Audit 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.

  • 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.

  • Program Assessment and Continuous Improvement

*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.
