Our program’s faculty is one of its greatest strengths. You won’t find another computer science program—online or otherwise—that brings such diverse expertise together in one place. That’s because the Bachelor of Science in Applied Computing is a collaboration between UW Extended Campus and five UW System campuses—UW-Milwaukee, UW-Oshkosh, UW-Platteville, UW-River Falls, and UW-Stevens Point.
All courses in this online program are developed and taught by University of Wisconsin faculty—the same faculty who teach our on-campus courses.
