Program Overview

In Computer Science,
we solve real
for real people.

The Bachelor of Science in Computer Science provides students with a thorough grounding in a set of core courses in computer science (CS) and other related areas, followed by the opportunity to hone their CS education in certain areas of specialization.  The mandatory core covers essential courses in Programming, Web Technology, Computer Architecture, Mathematics, Data Structures & Algorithms, and Management. The specializations cover dominant areas of CS such as Software Engineering, Computer Networking, Web Development, Information Systems, and Computational Mathematics. 

The anticipated end result is a set of graduates who are adequately prepared for their chosen vocation, be it graduate school, or employment.  More about Program Overview

Department Faculty

"The encouragement and assistance I've received from my professors in pursuing my research interests has been paramount in the graduate school application process."
– Dan Garant '13 

The CS Department is supported by a committed, competent, experienced team consisting of four full-time faculty members and a rich cadre of adjunct faculty members. Culled from academia and industry, each has their own specializations. And because of this, we foster and promote many partnerships with other disciplines, as well as with area businesses and community organizations. More about Department Faculty
