This program blends computer science abilities with skills specific to another discipline to prepare you to solve problems in that discipline. Examples include computing with a business focus like management information systems, or computing with a natural science focus like computational physics.

The program begins with a set of introductory courses that work together to provide you with a firm foundation in computer science. These introductory courses include weekly labs in which state-of-the-art software development techniques, like object-oriented programming in Java, are used to create solutions to interesting problems. The department’s unique laboratory model encourages creativity by providing ample opportunity for constructive feedback on your efforts. Once you complete the introductory core, you will be prepared to work independently within a well-structured design framework—in the classroom or on the job. The last two years of study build upon this foundation.
