From developing an immersive 3D virtual reality game to teach students languages, to creating mathematical models to better understand and improve the campus handicap accessibility routes, to evolving molecules through computer simulations to have specific chemical properties, our students learn to apply theory to real world issues in creative and interdisciplinary ways.
Along the way, they develop concise and logical patterns of thinking, hone problem-solving skills and learn critical thought processes that carry them throughout life.
Several women Math and Computer Science majors recently traveled to attend conferences, workshops, and internships to learn and engage with the larger CS community, with the help of prestigious scholarships.
Computational Math and Physics double-major Yash Gandhi shares details about his second NIST internship.
Several SU students presented independent research and capstone results near the end of the Spring 2017 semester. The department had a strong showing at the South Central Regional Meeting of the Consortium for Computing Sciences in Colleges, and there was a large turnout at the on-campus CS Capstone presentations.
