 Computer Sciences

 Students in the Computer Science Program at LMU explore the conceptual basis 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.
