Bachelor in Computer Science

General

Program Description

Muskingum University provides its students with a sound technical education that includes topics from a number of emerging areas, including web tool development, network and wireless communication, animated graphics, artificial life, and robotics. At the same time, the department faculty believes that a liberal arts institution should have a special mission that includes discussions of the effects of this technology within our society and around the world.

Student Opportunities

Internships

Recent internships for Computer Science students include:

  • Battelle Labs
  • Datatel
  • IBM
  • NASA

Research

In addition to internships, students generally get involved in research in connection with two courses—CPSC 400: Programming Projects and CPSC 495: Computer Science Seminar.

A recent example of student research comes from our summer Muskie Fellows program, through which Tanner Barnes ('12) studied the use of a cave development simulator under the direction of Jay Shaffstall, Instructor of Mathematics and Computer Science. Honoraries

Computer Science students may join the Muskingum University chapter of ACM (Association for Computing Machinery).
