The Computer Science Department seeks to educate graduates that will be both productive and creative in modern business and industry environments. Studies range from theory through experimental techniques to engineering methodology. This program exposes students to aspects of each of these disciplines and fosters an appreciation and understanding of each. Research, laboratory, and on-the-job experiences complement student classroom studies.
The field of computer science can trace its foundation to both mathematics and engineering methodology with the emphasis on practical experience. Using this philosophy, the Computer Science Department has designed a unique curricular model that seeks to provide an increased relevance to the real world. The Senior Project - capstone course - expands upon the experimental and design approach by introducing student to the creativity and productivity concerns required for business and industrial development.
