Our Study

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. Most of all, we think computer science is fun. Our energetic faculty have active research programs and typically involve student researchers during the summer and the academic year. Check out our department highlights to learn more about computer science and our department.

We have a growing pool of highly successful graduates. Our students continue on to successful careers in a wide variety of fields including the computing and financial industries. A number of our students continue on to graduate work as well. Computing research and technology can change the world for the better, and there are many great reasons for choosing computer science. Contrary to fears generated by outsourcing, computer science-related jobs are still some of the best, fastest-growing, and highly-paid positions available to freshly-minted graduates.
