College of Engineering Computer Science FAQ

The University of Nebraska–Lincoln’s computer science major is moving to the College of Engineering

Beginning in the Fall 2021 semester, new computer science majors will be enrolled in the College of Engineering and will complete the degree requirements specified in the 2021-2022 catalog. The computer science major in the College of Engineering will continue to provide students with a strong foundation in math, science, and computing, while also incorporating a broad foundation in liberal arts and sciences coursework. Students enrolled in the computer science catalog years prior to 2021-2022 will not be affected by this change and will be allowed to continue their program in the College of Arts and Sciences. Students may choose to move to the 2021-2022 catalog year, but will need to have the change approved by an academic advisor.
