What's Your Innovation?
Computer science teaches the fundamental problem-solving skills that create a distinctive advantage for innovators and technology leaders, and it is therefore no accident that some of the most successful U.S. companies of the last half century were established by computer scientists. The modern world turns on continual advances in technology and creative programming solutions. In our increasingly technology-oriented society, Computer Science provides the essential framework for sharing and accessing information, including:
- Graphics Design
- Artificial Intelligence
- Web Programming
- Software Design
- Mobile and Pervasive Computing
The department prides itself on programs that combine the rigorous development of problem-solving skills with basic business skills. A broad-based curriculum provides not only theory and technical skills, but also facilitates the integration of science, technology, and management skills that the field will require. The latter are learned through project-oriented courses that sometimes involve real companies acting as clients for student projects. Thanks to the combination of a strong technical spine with a senior year two-semester project course that develops the client-facing and project management skills expected of the modern IT professional, the program produces graduates who will become the high-end IT professionals of the future. The Computer Science program at Stevens is flexible, depending on the student's area of interest.
A Wealth of Options
