UP Diliman Department of Computer Science


Department profile

The Department of Computer Science is one of nine departments in the University of the Philippines College of Engineering. It is located in the UP Diliman Campus, which is the flagship campus of the University of the Philippines System.

The Department of Computer Science administers the four-year Bachelor of Science in Computer Science Program and the Master of Science in Computer Science program. The department currently has 550 undergraduate and 100 graduate students.

The BSCS program is designed to equip the student with knowledge of the fundamental concepts and a reasonable mastery of the basic tools and techniques in computer science. The undergraduate program incorporates the core material, which is universally accepted as common to Computer Science undergraduate programs (computer programming, computer organization, computer systems, data structures and algorithms, file processing, and programming languages). Underpinning the software orientation of the program are the subjects on database systems, software engineering, artificial intelligence, computer networks and special problems (primarily, software projects).

The Master of Science in Computer Science program is administered also by the CS Department. The program aims to provide the student with both breadth and depth of knowledge in the concepts and techniques related to the design, programming, and application of computing systems.

Official websites

The UP CS Network (UP Alliance of Computer Science Organizations)

The UP CS Network is the first student organization alliance of its kind in the UP Diliman College of Engineering. The Network is composed of two socio-academic organizations (UP CURSOR and UP CompSoc), two academic organizations (UP ACM and UnPLUG), two department service arms (UP Parser and DCS SA), one college service arm (UP Engineering Webteam), and one university service arm (CRS).

The first full active school year of existence of the CS Network (AY 2005-06) culminated in the Department of Computer Science being adjudged the College's Best Department for the year by the Engineering Student Council (see related external link).
