Congrats to Alex Hall!

Alex (Frederick Alexander Hall II) graduated from our program in Fall 2013.

He has applied to pursue a Ph.D. degree in Computer Science. He has received offers including a full, paid tuition and an annual stipend from several universities, including the University of North Carolina, University of Wisconsin-Madison, Utah and University of California-Berkeley.

While a Computer Science major at UW-Whitewater, Alex participated in several undergraduate research projects including Interactive Degree Planner with Drs. Athula Gunawardena, Sobitha Samaranayake and Cheng Thao and NSF supported Computer Vision related project, conducted by Dr. Lopa Mukherjee.



Congratulations to Emily Paulson. Her undergraduate research poster (Advisor Hien Nguyen) was chosen Best Poster at Undergraduate Research Day, March 19, 2014.



The Computer Science major at UW-Whitewater compliments a robust technological presence on campus, which includes programs in Information Technology and Media Arts & Game Development.

The major is geared toward students who want to pursue careers in software engineering, commercial software production, systems programming, Web development, and network, database, or computer design. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, half of the 10 fastest-growing careers for college graduates are computer science-related.

The Mathematics and Computer Science department offers a liberal arts major, leading to a Bachelor of Science or Bachelor of Arts in computer science from the College of Letters and Sciences.

The computer science major consists of 8 core courses plus 4 emphasis courses (2 courses from each of 2 emphasis areas). Both BA and BS degree choices provide students with a strong background for advanced study at the graduate level. Sample 4-year plan is posted in the Student Resources section.

In addition, the department offers several minors/emphases for students who would like a stronger background in computer science and mathematics to complement their chosen major.
