Enrollment and Graduation Data

The College at Brockport has offered programs of study in computing sciences since the early 1970s. At present, there are two distinct majors: Computer Science and Computer Information Systems.

Students admitted to the Computer Science major at The College at Brockport are expected to choose either the Advanced Computing (AC) Track or the Software Development (SD) Track. Students who are unsure of which track they want to pursue (for example, first-year college students) may postpone declaring a specific track until they receive sufficient advisement. Such students are counted under the "No Track" column for student enrollment.

The Information Systems (IS) Track was re-designated as the Computer Information Systems major in January 2009. At that time, students enrolled in the Information Systems Track were given an opportunity to switch to the new major. No new students will be allowed to matriculate in the Information Systems Track and it will be discontinued once all enrolled students have graduated or have withdrawn from the program.

Students admitted at Isik University, Istanbul, Turkey under the dual diploma program agreement between Brockport and Isik are counted under the "No Track" column. These students, on completion at both universities of the degree requirements listed under the dual diploma program, are counted as graduating under the Computer Software Engineering (SE) Track of the Computer Science major.

The Advanced Computing (AC) Track of the Computer Science (CSC) major and the Computer Information Systems (CIS) major are currently accredited by the Computing Accreditation Commission of ABET, http://www.abet.org.
