CS @ Colgate

Welcome to the Department of Computer Science at Colgate University! Computer science is the study of algorithmic processes and the machines that carry out these processes. It is a mix of theory, application, design, and experiment. Methods and ideas drawn from computer science are increasingly important in other scientific disciplines as well as the humanities and social sciences.

Our energetic faculty have active research programs and involve student researchers during the summer and the academic year. Colgate computer science students continue on to successful careers in a wide variety of fields.
