Opportunities in Computer Science
Computer scientists are employed as systems programmers, application programmers (business, scientific, industrial,etc.), systems analysts, programmer analysts, researchers, network specialists, computer system designers, educators and in computer sales. Opportunities exist in business, industry, government, education and the military. Many graduates enter graduate school for further study of computer science.
The department's network is connected to the campus fiber-optic backbone network. The department consists of ten tenure-line faculty (seven of whom hold a Ph.D.), a lab coordinator, and a part-time faculty member (at Camden). All courses are taught by qualified staff members for whom teaching effectiveness is the primary consideration for reappointment and/or promotion. No courses are taught by graduate students. Each student is assigned a full time faculty member as adviser; students can choose their own advisers if desired. Faculty also interact with students in the computer science club.
The faculty conduct research in such areas as algorithms and data structures, compiler design, software engineering, artificial intelligence, pattern recognition, computer graphics, computer science education, simulation and visualization, and data base theory.
Students are encouraged to present at national and international conferences. Most recently, our students were seen at:
Because our faculty offers an unusually diverse range of expertise for an undergraduate university, you'll be able to specialize in a variety of areas including:
