From the operating software we use on a daily basis to the security of our critical infrastructures, computer scientists develop ways to solve problems, process information, and secure our future. Computer programmers harness the technology of our world, making computers continually innovative and limitlessly functional. Computer Science is the development of algorithms to solve real-world problems in a mechanized way. Computer scientists write programs to control computer systems and work on applications that use computers. They develop video games, systems, and controllers. They also work in data security, internet networking, bioinformatics, and artificial intelligence. The computer science department educates students in a broad range of areas. Students take courses in the design and implementation of software systems and the algorithms (problem solving techniques) used to solve “real world” problems in business, industry, and engineering or as preparation for graduate study. Students are given both the depth and breadth of computer science so necessary to keep them competitive in today’s fast-changing world. While instruction and research are on the leading edge of computing, the department endeavors to keep class sizes small to promote proactive teaching practices and effective interactions between the students and faculty. In addition to computer science courses, the department’s undergraduate program requires students to be educated in a broad range of general education courses. All computer science seniors are expected to take the capstone course that gives them “real world” experience working in teams composed of fellow students and practicing computer scientists. Computer science graduates from Missouri S&T work in a variety of environments. Some work for large companies, others prefer smaller companies. Many of our graduates have started their own companies. Regardless of their choice of employment, Missouri S&T computer science graduates are in high demand as evidenced by the number of companies that specifically recruit our graduates. The computer science department at Missouri S&T makes use of both its own computer learning center (CLC) as well as university CLCs. The department CLC contains a mix of Linux and Windows computing platforms. Research laboratories provide support for both undergraduate and graduate students. These laboratories include: Computer Vision and Biomedical Imaging Laboratory CReWMaN Laboratory Critical Infrastructure Protection Laboratory McDonnell Douglas Software Engineering Laboratory Natural Computation Laboratory Network Research Laboratory Pervasive Computing Laboratory Social Computing Research Laboratory Web and Wireless Computing (W2C) Laboratory and NSF Industry-University Research Center on Net Centric Software Systems
