Focuses on imparting a strong foundation in computer sciences while instilling a lifelong love of learning in this ever-evolving field.
The Department of Computer Science and Physics is a dynamic environment, energized by the relationship between one of science’s oldest disciplines and one of its newest.
Physics describes the foundation and building blocks of the physical world; computer science is one of the most exciting fields to arise out of that set of rules. Students of both must balance theory and practice as they master the art of problem-solving. Coming from a variety of backgrounds, the computer science faculty represent a rich, diverse selection of skills and expertise.
Hands-on experience comes easily, with an environment that offers students lots of opportunities to demonstrate what they know and put their skills to work. State-of-the-art technology and dedicated computer science labs ensure that the right tools for learning are always available. Students can also tailor their learning to their goals, with opportunities for individual learning and research.
Internships help computer science students build their resumes and their skills. Computer science students have interned with the Office of the Secretary of State of Mississippi, the Mississippi Attorney General, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, General Electric, General Dynamics, Stennis Space Center, Hughes Aircraft, Teledyne Brown, Ergon Caterpillar, Inc., Horne, LLP, Mississippi Department of Information Technology Services, the Waterways Experiment Station, and many more.
MC’s Computer Science alumni are a successful bunch, making a significant impact in their workplaces wherever they go.
