Computer Science contains and shares assorted computer-equipped classrooms in the science center. Machines include dual boot linux/windows workstations as well as triple boot Macintosh computers.

Students and faculty members pursue interdisciplinary research and class work using digital circuits and microprocessor kits; robot arms, dogs, and platforms; sensors and synthesizers, for digital sound and music; digital video cameras and a Gypsy 3.0 wireless model motion capture system; and a 3-D printer, a laser scanner and a laser cutter for rapid prototyping.

Computer Science shares the Center for Design and Fabrication, a college-wide resource used by artists and scientists alike.

Applications such as Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator; Macromedia Dreamweaver; Matlab and Mathematica; Final

Cut Pro; Processing, Flash and Sketch up are available, as are QT, Java, and python for advanced programming; Keykit, Csound, and Pure Data for computer sound and music; and OpenGL, GameMaker, and POV-Ray, and blender for computer graphics.

Computer Science students are very active in the department. Two liaisons (Jordan Crouser & Stephanie Gibbons this year) attend department meetings, and run social events like movie and game night.

Many students work as teaching assistants, running help sessions, grading, and aiding students during teaching labs.

Many students also do research as special studies, as research grant assistants, or as honors theses.
