This degree from Lake Superior State University provides a solid background in Computer Science with supporting coursework in applied mathematics and business.


The skills you need to solve problems…and the skills that employers need to solve theirs.

Our world often emphasizes technological skills, but that is a shallow approach. Those “mad skills” will be out-dated in a handful of years. Our curriculum is designed, maintained, and updated to keep pace with the real world, but it is also grounded in the most important skills of all: the ability to think and the ability to learn.

Computer Science students from Lake Superior State University apply and adapt what they’ve learned in our projects courses, giving them real world experience before they graduate.

In the sophomore projects course you will to learn how to analyze the needs of an actual client, to design and implement a solution for their problem, and to deliver that project on time.

Key facts

In your senior year, you will complete a two semester senior capstone experience where you will be challenged to manage larger and more complex client projects. You will develop “soft skills” to communicate with clients, to prepare written documentation and reports, to deliver presentations and training to clients, and to work effectively on teams.

Our clients come from the university and the local community. The work can be a software/networking/web project, an internship with a local corporation, or even a research project!

By the time you graduate, you will be prepared not just to thrive in today’s world, but to change tomorrow’s world. That’s what thinkers and learners do.

Adding an appropriate minor field of study can complement the program, as well as give the graduate a competitive edge in the work force.
