- Professor of Computer Science
Students that major in Computer Science are at the forefront of technology.
Technically speaking, our students know their stuff
Our students learn to think critically, logically, and abstractly. They gain both an understanding of the underlying theory and concepts of computing as well as the facility to integrate theory with practice. They write software that improve the quality of life, they develop incredibly powerful websites, they design and implement systems, they develop new technology.
You'll explore a wide range of courses focused on system and technology development. And you'll use what you learn to build a rewarding career in programming, web development, system support, network administration, database design, computer and network security, applications development and software engineering and other high-tech fields. The demand for computer scientists in the workplace remains strong.
You'll work with a faculty advisor to tailor your program to your interests and career goals. The Computer Science and Informatics Program offers many closely-related programs — such as health informatics, web design & development and information technology — as well as the 3+1 Computer Science/M.S. in Library and Information Science.
Hands-on research experience is a key part of a Simmons science education. Research opportunities are open to students as early as the freshman year. Many students also complete internships. Students have been placed at industry, government, nonprofits, and academic institutions. Quite often an internship will lead to a job upon graduation.
Students are offered networking opportunities by connecting them to professionals and organizations dedicated to their chosen field. Simmons University is a member of the National Center for Women & Information Technology (NCWIT) Academic Alliance.
So you know that Simmons is a great place to be, you've learned about our programs, maybe even come for a visit...now you're ready to apply! Let's get started.
