Mathematics and Computer Science
Concepts and techniques of mathematics and computer science play a vital role in everyday life. The curriculum and other activities of the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science reflect this.
Using conceptual and analytical skills gained in upper-level math courses, our students are well prepared for careers and advanced study in a number of fields. Students also find natural collaborations among the sciences and with art and communication technologies.
Our computer science program gives students the practical tools they need for advanced study and an increasing variety of careers, including computer programming, web design, and software engineering. Concepts and techniques of mathematics and computer science play a vital role in a growing number of human activities. Through internships, our students prepare for the ever-changing nature of technology and computer science while providing learning tools to succeed in today’s hi-tech world.
This summer, three Lake Forest College students work to ensure the VirtualSpace, located in the Donnelley and Lee Library on Middle Campus, is ready for the fall semester.
