Mathematics and Computer Science
Computer science students prepare autonomous robots to navigate terrain.
From the conceptual and analytical skills students gain in upper-level math courses to the practical skills student learn in computer programming, our students are well prepared for careers and advanced study in a number of fields. Students also find natural collaborations among the sciences and with art and communication technologies.
Concepts and techniques of mathematics and computer science play a vital role in everyday life. The curriculum and other activities of the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science reflect this.
Katherine Beall ’18 earned first place and Lauren Bell ’18 an honorable mention to land a one-two Forester punch at the 2018 Midwest Economics Association undergraduate paper competition.
