A Welcome From Nicholas Karonis, Chair

The NIU Computer Science Department has been successfully educating computer professionals for more than 30 years. Our programs keep pace with industry demands for well-trained graduates who are ready to assume vital roles in the field of information technology immediately upon entry into the work force. We are continuing with that great tradition and are now offering some of our courses online. In addition, our MS program has undergone significant changes with the establishment of a track system which will allow more flexibility for students, as well as through the creation of a thesis option in addition to our traditional course-only approach. I encourage you to examine the rest of the department's web site to find out more about our successful curriculum and various departmental activities.

Nicholas T. Karonis, Chair
