Why Computing Science?

Join our newly re-started Computing Science program, and acquire advanced knowledge and hands-on skills.

Our Computing Science program prepares you to be a technological leader with a global perspective.

Our graduates are creative problem solvers, lifelong learners, and highly adaptable leaders in our rapidly changing world.

In addition to studying fundamental computing science topics, our students choose from a variety of elective courses, including: artificial intelligence, software engineering, computer graphics, databases, programming languages, computer networking, and virtual reality.

We encourage our students to engage in undergraduate research with their computing science professors. These research projects often result in students presenting their work at international conferences. Past students have coauthored papers with their professors and published their findings in peer-reviewed journals, providing them with valuable experience and identifiable skills.

Through our program, our students gain expertise in their area, as well as character development, as they learn to navigate between technology and society from a distinctly Christian worldview. Graduates from our computing science program stand out as confident professionals and choose from a variety of career paths, such as: software developer, systems manager, support specialist, trainer, software engineer, technical writer, software tester or supporter, and entrepreneur.

OUR COMPUTING SCIENCE AND INFORMATION SYSTEMS PROGRAM OFFERS:

  • A major in Computing Science leading to a BSc
  • A major in Mathematics with Computing Science leading to a BSc
  • A concentration
  • A minor

ALUMNI PERSPECTIVE:

“The courses I took at TWU helped me gain the skills needed for the job as a web developer. Through my liberal arts education, I experienced a sampling of many different fields, which helped me decide my career path. TWU’s strong sense of community—through friends and also teachers—was fundamental to my becoming who I am today. I was exposed to opportunities that wouldn’t have been possible at a different university.”

ANDREW CHELL, 2011
