Computer Science Department

The Department of Computer Science offers a major program of study in three areas:

Our degree programs prepare students to work effectively in industry and government jobs, and to enter graduate programs.

Students are introduced to the basics of operating systems and computer architecture, along with the fundamental concepts of data structures and the algorithms that proceed from them. In addition to examining the basic fundamental components found in a computer, emphasis is placed on designing and executing functional computing platforms.

Our students have the opportunity to practice conceptual theory in our labs and in the community. All students benefit from one-on-one interaction with our faculty, while many students take advantage of our extensive network of internship opportunities.

The Computer Science Department participates in three minors: Computer Science Minor, Web Design Minor, and Computational Physical Science Minor.

Refer to the Online College Catalogue for more information, including course descriptions.
