Theoretical and Practical Foundations

The Augsburg Computer Science Department strives to give students a sound theoretical and practical foundation in computer science. Offering both a B.A. and a B.S. major, the program emphasizes lasting concepts rather than specific applications, even as we immerse students in a dynamic world of robotics, networking, communications, and programming languages. As a result, a computer science degree at Augsburg provides an enduring foundation for a variety of careers that use computing.

Since the Twin Cities abounds in such opportunities, we encourage students to augment their coursework by electing an internship or cooperative education experience. Internships not only provide pivotal experience that can be cited on a resume, they often lead to attractive job offers.
