The Turing Scholars Program is an honors program for outstanding Computer Science undergraduates. Housed in the nation's 7th ranked CS department, the program's mission is to provide a CS education that is second to none. The program welcomed its first class of freshmen in the Fall of 2002 and graduated its first students in the Spring of 2005.
The Turing Scholars Program is a 4-year degree program for outstanding undergraduates to earn a special honors degree in the Computer Science major. Among the program's aspects are an intensive, accelerated freshman year program designed to immerse students in their studies and to let them complete three semesters of work in only two semesters.
There are also special honors versions of standard CS courses for students in their sophomore through senior years, and support for undergraduate research that culminates in an undergraduate honors thesis. Turing scholars are also given the opportunity to live in an honors dormitory.
The program combines the advantages of a small college -- small class sizes, close interaction with faculty, and honors housing -- with the advantages of a large research university, including a large variety of undergraduate and graduate courses, and ample opportunities for interdisciplinary studies.
