Collaboration with Other Departments
The Computer Science program is part of the Department of Mathematical and Computer Sciences, so as a major in our department, you'll become familiar with students and faculty in the math programs. Also, our computer engineering major is offered in conjunction with the Physics and Engineering Department.
As part of your major, you can gain practical experience through a for-credit internship at a company or organization.
Senior Thesis Research Project
During your senior year, you'll get to work one-on-one on a research project with a faculty member. You'll research, write a paper and present your work to peers in your department. Past projects have included graphical computer games, web-linked database systems and computer networks.
