Computer science and mathematics have infiltrated every aspect of our lives—driving new technologies that help make people's lives and jobs easier. Earning a degree from ORU's Computing & Mathematics Department prepares you for high-paying jobs in industry, business, government, and education. The Bureau of Labor Statistics predicts that over the next ten years, the number of job openings in computing and mathematics-related fields will triple the number of available graduates. We offer certificates, microcredentials, minors, and undergraduate degrees in actuarial science, data science, computer information technology, computer science, and mathematics; and graduate degrees in computer science and data science. Under the direction of caring, Christian scholars and teachers, you will explore these fascinating scientific fields and graduate ready to go into every person's world.
Some of the outstanding features of this program:
- We're growing! Our department has doubled in size over the last five years; we have new computer labs and a brand-new high-performance computer called Titan.
- The ORU Chapter of the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) encourages networking with professionals in the computer science field and greater awareness of technological advances.
- ORU's excellent professors will encourage you to participate in undergraduate research projects in areas such as high-performance computing, data science, and nanotechnology.
- Professors provide extensive individual attention to students, assuring they have full understanding of all concepts covered.
- You'll have the opportunity to enter fun and challenging competitions such as the ACM computer programming competition, the Putnam Exam, and others. Recently, our ACM team placed second at the Global Hackathon held in St. Louis, winning $2,500.
Applied Science is a discipline that develops practical applications or innovations by using existing scientific knowledge.
