  • Course description

    Do you enjoy a mental challenge? Like working with technology and solving problems? Then consider majoring in computer science. Computer science is part math and part engineering. It provides a more hands-on alternative to natural sciences such as physics and chemistry, although it draws on both these topics. It also provides excellent job options for those with a bachelor's degree -- you will not need additional graduate study to find a rewarding career.

    As a computer science major at Lewis University, you will acquire both theoretical knowledge and technical skills. The coursework involve:
    • Understanding the basics of computer technology, and how computers process information
    • Designing algorithms for problem solving
    • Learning program languages and techniques
    • Studying network architecture and communication protocols
    • Exploring how machine characteristics influence system design

    Students get plenty of practice time in Lewis' computer labs. Plus, you will find great internship possibilities, including positions at Argonne National Laboratory. Local businesses are also eager to hire computer science interns from Lewis.

    With this technical background, you will have the foundation needed for a successful career. Lewis graduates continue to advance state-of-the-art computer technology in their workplaces.
