Points of Interest
Students majoring in Computer Science have the unique experience of participating in a number of very progressive activities that bolster their understanding of the subject. These activities include:
- Conducting projects in the upper-level courses that allow students to synthesize what they have learned by actually designing a small-scale computer system of their own and engaging in software engineering.
- Opportunities to engage in actual research involving computer science.
- Opportunities to enroll in specialty courses that are offered periodically, such as, Principles of Robotics, Computer Vision, Computer Graphics, Data Mining, Gaming, or Cloud Computing.
- Opportunities to attend and/or participate in nationally recognized student conferences and student competitions in computer science.
- Field experiences involving visits to locations or operations of interest.
- Club activities that are student directed.
