Computer Science Engineering

Welcome to the Department of Computer Science and Engineering at The Ohio State University at Marion. If you are visiting this page you may be aware of the importance of computing and universal presence of this discipline in everyday life. Our program is designed to prepare students for innovative and challenging career and provide computing skills for students of other disciplines.

Students in CSE program are required to complete fundamental math, science and engineering courses to apply for the major. OSU Marion offers the first two years courses in CSE major. After admitting to the major and taking required courses students can study different branches in CSE in the main campus including:

  • Artificial Intelligence: Machine Learning, Auditory, Speech & Language processing, Cognitive systems, Computer Vision
  • Computer Graphics: Animation, Computational Biology, Games and Virtual Environments, Geometric processing, Visualization
  • Networking and Distributed Computing: Wireless Networking, Cyber-Physical Systems, Distributed Computing, network Security, Social Networks
  • Software Engineering and Programming Languages
  • Systems: Computer Architecture, Data Management and Mining, High performance Computing, Software Systems
  • Theory and Algorithms: Computational Geometry, Computational Learning Theory, Graph Algorithms, Random structures and algorithms, etc.
