Earliest start date
The University of Washington (UW) Paul G. Allen School of Computer Science & Engineering (CSE) serves over 1,500 undergraduates in our two majors and many more through our introductory and non-major courses. Our labs and facilities offer a premier learning and gathering environment where you can work hard individually and with others interested in learning how computing technology can transform the world. The Allen School also serves as an entry point for students across the UW campus to explore the world of computing with courses designed to enable all students, regardless of major, to develop computational thinking and hands-on programming skills.
The Allen School offers two undergraduate majors: the Bachelor of Science in Computer Science (CS) and the Bachelor of Science in Computer Engineering (CE). The CS degree is awarded through the College of Arts and Sciences. Compared with CE, it has broader liberal arts and general education requirements and offers more flexibility in its upper-division requirements. The CE degree is awarded through the College of Engineering and is accredited by ABET. CE's requirements place relatively greater emphasis on math and science, as well as computing hardware.
