Opportunities for Our Students

We maintain strong ties with local and regional companies, who recruit directly from our currently enrolled and graduated student body. Our industry partners are committed to mentoring and interacting directly with students and sharing professional knowledge and experience so that they acquire a strong familiarity with commonly used tools and frameworks. We prepare students for graduate programs and offer a diverse pool of well funded research opportunities and scholarship programs. All of our faculty are engaged in active research in their chosen fields and offer many funded research opportunities to our graduate students to participate in innovative technological projects. Active research also ensures that course material is current and relevant which is crucial for a field that rapidly evolves.

Promoting Student Success

We ensure that our students succeed. We provide free tutoring and have a full time help desk available to all computer science students. We also support the mission of the university to offer accommodations for non-traditional students with many night classes and programming labs open 24/7. Our department values an approachable environment and strives to work closely with students.  Students, faculty, and staff share a strong communal bond through the many computer science related student organizations which facilitates an exciting technology-centric culture and community on campus.
