Computer science students are offered a rich experience that includes opportunities and activities that occur outside of the classroom setting. In addition to research and scholarships, students can also participate in the student chapter of the ACM.
Undergraduates participate alongside faculty in specialized research projects. Students have the opportunity to publish their research at conferences, where they may interact with graduate students and scientists in their fields.
A research lab contains state-of-the-art equipment dedicated to undergraduate student use and is replaced on a regular and frequent schedule. The department actively pursues and is awarded research funding and grants for undergraduate computer science students and for the purchase of software and high-performance graphics work-stations. Students are provided interactive access to network-based digital materials provided by their professors.
In addition, the department vigorously pursues scholarship funds for students.
An on-campus student chapter of the Association for Computing Machinery provides extracurricular activities, including campus lectures, service projects, field trips, and programming contests.
