Computer Science Program is to prepare students to think critically and creatively to succeed in implementation of computer based solutions to adapt to the changing technological and social environments in a global economy.

This program, which emphasizes English as the medium of instruction and the cross-disciplinary study, provides students with both theoretical and practical knowledge and skills, in preparation for their future career.

With an emphasis on research experience and industry internships, we offer small class sizes and an ideal faculty-student ratio for focused education. Students enjoy dedicated faculty, and an immersive learning environment for knowledge building and research. The program at Wenzhou is indispensable from the Kean Union campus. Huge possible opportunities of learning, researching, practicing and working are bridged between here and New Jersey.

For students who want to pursue higher degrees, we have some multidisciplinary research projects, including computational emotions and neuro-marketing, gamification in business and education, privacy and security in social media, artificial intelligence, human computer interaction, sentiment analysis and data mining, etc.
