Department of Computer Science

Your Computer Science career starts at Michigan Tech. In the Computer Science department you'll discover leading- edge degree programs, innovative teaching and mentoring, cutting-edge research, and rewarding community outreach activities. A computer science degree will provide you with a foundation of knowledge, problem-solving skills, and logical thinking that will serve as an advantage to you in your career in whatever field you choose. 

We are living in the digital age, and an understanding of programming and computer technology are required virtually everywhere. Computer scientists and software engineers design, develop, and apply the software and hardware for all the technology that you encounter in everyday life. But the Computer Science field is about much more than programming. It’s about inventing and building creative, innovative solutions. Questions related to science, engineering, health care, and many other areas are answered with the support of computers. 

And as we become more and more dependent on computers for manufacturing, entertainment, medical procedures and more, the need for computer scientists will grow. The BLS projects that employment for computer and information technology occupations will increase by 13% between 2020 and 2030.
