Students in the Computer Science Program at LMU explore the conceptual bases of information and computation. Over the course of the four-year program, students apply these theoretical foundations through the manipulation of computational systems and the design of computer software. The modern curriculum immerses students in key courses such as Artificial Intelligence, Network Security, Programming Languages, Program Translation, Data Structures, Software Engineering, Computer Architecture, and many more. Collateral coursework in mathematics, physics, and electronics enhance the students’ overall competency and competitiveness in the field. Students graduate exceptionally well prepared to enter the workforce or continue their advanced educational goals in graduate programs.
Computer Science Internship
The internship program ensures that all Computer Science majors participate in extraordinary experiential learning experiences in the workplace under the direct mentorship of a practicing computer science professional.
Computer Programming Competitions
All Computer Science majors are encouraged to join the Computer Science programming team where you may have the opportunity to compete in a regional competition of the Association of Computing Machinery with hopes of advancing to higher levels.
We encourage you to explore the complete curriculum by downloading the program’s four-year plan. If you have any questions please contact Dr. Ashraf Aly | 423.869.6592 | [email protected]

Career Opportunities in Computer Science
The US Department of Labor projects faster than average job growth (19%) in this field by 2026 and with many companies reporting difficulties finding highly skilled workers in this area, it is likely that computer scientists will be able to easily secure a position in the field. Computer Science graduates could find positions in areas such as:
Cyber Security Analyst/Consultant
Information Systems Manager
Information Technology Architect/Consultant/Specialist
