Our students gain real world experience that equips them with the skill sets they need to land world class careers. Below are just a few of the opportunities waiting for you as a future computer science student.
Current students are carrying out real world projects with industry and nonprofits. Computer Science Student Development Teams are:
These real applications enhance our students’ portfolios, communication skills and career networking opportunities.
Our students get real-world experience that equips them with the skill sets they need to land world class careers. A vast set of opportunities awaits the engaged student, including:
A four - year fellowship of $2,000 per year is awarded annually up to ten incoming students per year majoring in Computer Science. Prospective Fellows must have a minimum high school grade point average of 3.5, a SAT (critical reading and math) score of at least 1100 or ACT of at least 24, and a letter of recommendation. Additionally the Fellowship requires the student to remain as a Computer Science major, maintain good academic standing (3.0 QPA) and participate in either an internship or an undergraduate research project or a study abroad experience prior to graduating. Students, as Computer Science Fellows, should also be willing to participate in outreach, tutorial or service activities. Click here for more information and to complete the online application.
Computer Science majors may receive an award to carry out Undergraduate Summer Research with a faculty mentor. A number of research topics are possible ranging from applied real world problems to theoretical questions. Students in previous years have received a stipend for the eight - week research program.
Students who present at regional and national conferences may receive a monetary award to help with travel related expenses. Students also present their summer undergraduate research results, seminar research projects, and independent study projects at on and off campus events as well as participate in programming competitions.
This award is presented to the top senior student in the department based upon academics and service to the department.
The MECS club at Saint Francis University is made up of mathematics, engineering, and computer science majors. Their mission is to advance student learning experiences through speakers, community service projects and field visits to industrial sites, graduate schools and conferences. The MECS Club is also highly active in tutoring students on campus.
This $1.5 Million Endowment provides a rich set of resources and opportunities
An exciting next generation combination of web and entertainment technologies, including computer science, visual story-telling, and graphic arts where words, images (still and video), sound and human commands are integrated to produce a dynamic and exciting new media format. Saint Francis University students in this concentration will spend two semesters onsite at Harrisburg University of Science and Technology where they will complete concentration coursework in HU’s state of the art media production facilities.
Our dream for a new sciences facility is becoming a reality with completion expected in fall 2013. This 70,000 square-foot facility will house state-of-the-art classrooms, laboratories and research facilities (including an aquatic research facility), advanced chemical instrumentation and youth outreach areas, in addition to places for students and faculty to gather, study, and learn.
This state-of-the-art facility has significant space dedicated to the Computer Science Program. These exceptional spaces include:
