Effective July 1 2012, the Department of Computer Science at Louisiana State University, Baton Rouge has become the Division of Computer Science and Engineering within the newly formed School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science (EECS), which resides in the College of Engineering. The School consists of two divisions (officially recognized units) namely, CSE (Computer Science and Engineering) and ECE (Electrical and Computer Engineering). Each division has separate budgets, independent administrations, and its own Chairperson, who reports to the Dean of Engineering College. This school's divisional model provides each division with an environment to advance within its discipline and at the same time it provides a unique opportunity for interdivisional interactions to promote joint research and educational activities of mutual interest and expertise. The CSE division offers an ABET accredited BS program in Computer Science, offers MS degree program in Computer Science and PhD program in Computer Science.
