The courses in the Computer Science Department are designed to teach the foundations of computing rather than a particular technology, so that the student is prepared to adapt to changing technology. Courses use the C++ programming language. Introductory courses use networked microcomputers; advanced courses use UNIX™ workstations.

The job market in computer science is strong. A student completing a bachelor's degree with a strong academic record can expect job offers as a systems programmer or analyst, applications programmer, systems support staff member, technical staff member, or similar position. The undergraduate curriculum has also been designed to prepare students for graduate studies (master's and doctoral degrees) in computer science. Qualified students who have an interest in research will have opportunities to participate in projects with department faculty during undergraduate or graduate studies.
