What to Expect in the Computer Science Program

When you major in Computer Science at Ashland University, you’ll take advantage of an exceptionally strong programming curriculum.

In this program, you’ll:

  • Receive personal attention from each of your professors, and many opportunities to participate in classroom activities with small class sizes

  • Access state-of-the-art computers in your classrooms and the department computer lab running on a variety of operating systems including Linux, Solaris, MacOS, and Windows so you can learn to work across many platforms. They’re also equipped with scientific typesetting software, software development tools, compilers, word processors, spreadsheet programs, database programs, web design and programming tools, audio and video editing software, multimedia software, computer algebra systems, statistical and geometric software, and other applications to enhance your learning experience.

  • Gain real world experience with internship opportunities at local and regional companies to earn college credit while getting paid

  • Benefit from opportunities to participate in national and international programming competitions to further build your skills

For your senior capstone, a local company will provide you with a real-life computer science problem and you’ll design the software to solve it. This will help you demonstrate your skills and give you the confidence to meet future challenges in your career of choice.
