Department of Computer & Information Science
The Department of Computer and Information Science programs are designed to provide students with the fundamental knowledge and skills required to initiate and maintain a successful career in the computer and information science fields. All students in our programs are exposed to a variety of hardware platforms and programming languages. Hands-on experience in the design and implementation of a complete information systems project is attained in the student's senior year.
The mission of the Department of Computer and Information Science is to produce men and women who can assess, develop, and maintain business and scientific computing systems, and who are capable of continued learning and ethical practice in computing.
To achieve this mission the department provides a professional environment that introduces students to relevant computing concepts, systems, and methodologies through a curriculum that effectively blends theory with practice.
There Are Three Critical Components To Creating This Professional Environment:
- a faculty dedicated to student learning
- a diverse set of computing resources
- a curriculum that can be tailored to satisfy individual objectives
The department is committed to providing knowledgeable and caring faculty, access to a full range of computers, operating systems, programming languages, and application packages, and curricular options that address the needs of modern business and scientific computing.
Please call our Admissions Office to schedule a visit with faculty and tour our classrooms.
Best wishes for success in all your endeavors.
