Students majoring in the Computer Science Comprehensive program at the University of Nebraska at Kearney learn to use computer science with advanced problem solving techniques to develop innovative software solutions. UNK's Cyber Systems Department is the right place for students who want to personalize their educational experience. Students in Cyber Systems can implement their own student-led projects in many classes, under the direction of experienced faculty members. The CS Comprehensive major is a fully contained technology program and does not require a minor.

Students have the opportunity to compete in regional competitions such as hacking, programming and robotics. In the past five years, UNK has taken first place in both regional hacking and robotics competitions.

“The first time I visited UNK, I met with multiple professors in the Computer Science department. I got to visit some of the labs and the professors explained to me the projects that some of the current students were working on. I thought that the UNK CSIT department was very welcoming and that it was a place where I could succeed.”
