Why CS?

Why CS?

Students who earn a degree in Computer Science develop many valuable skills and depending on their interests and experiences, can market themselves to work in many different types of industry. Remember that Computer Science is all about inventing and problem solving. A good way to think about computer scientists is that they develop the brains that actually run the computer programs people use. For example, when you search for a book online and you find the book you want and the website also tells you about similar books you might enjoy, computer scientists were the people who developed the brains for that website that give you those other recommendations based on your interests. This is just one example of the countless inventions that computer scientists develop every day.

We encourage prospective Computer Science students and their families to meet with a department representative before making a decision about what college to attend or program to study.  Our goal is to give you a better understanding of what Computer Science is, explain the details of the Computer Science program and curriculum, and answer any questions you might have.  You will also have the opportunity to take a self-guided tour through the Computer Science floor to see what our labs, classrooms, and student areas are like.

We encourage you to call our Student Services Office in advance at +1.585.475.2995.  A member of our staff will be able to assist you in setting up a one hour appointment with our Manager of Student Services. Unfortunately, we cannot accommodate same day appointments and availability during the week fills up quickly.
