COMPUTER SCIENCE

Computer Science is a discipline of modern origin in which the theory and applications of high speed machine computation, of efficient data processing, of advanced graphics design, and of machine assisted problem solving are developed and studied.

The computer science minor builds a solid background in computing and related principles so that students emerge from the program equipped for both commercial employment and for advanced study.

Employment opportunities are to be found in the data processing departments of commercial enterprises and of state and federal agencies, in research in all of the physical and social sciences, and in many industrial and engineering applications. Although the opportunities offered students are many and varied, it must be recognized that the rapid rate of change of our technology imposes the responsibility of continuing study in order to remain current in this field.
