The Computer Science program prepares students for professional employment in technical fields or graduate school. As a Computer Science student, you will receive a thorough grounding in modern computer science theory and practice, learn to apply your knowledge to the design of today’s complex software systems and prepare for the increasingly complex systems of the future. Our graduates anticipate and respond effectively to the uncertainties of a changing technological, social, political and economic world.
A broad range of exposure to the field of computer science allows flexibility in choosing employment or going on to graduate school. Small classes allow ample opportunities for one-on-one interaction with classmates and instructors. The opportunity for one-on-one interaction with faculty not only in class but also in discussions on career and graduate school choices sets RWU apart from the competition. Many students undertake research in an area of operating systems as part of a class. Many of these research efforts go on to be presented at the National Conference on Undergraduate Research.
