The Northwest Difference

As a computer science major, students learn skills and techniques that will prepare them for success in their careers or graduate studies. Faculty focus on three core areas: general background in computer science, theory and practical reasoning.

Studying the general background in computer science educates students about the theories for why and how software systems are developed. Students learn theory by solving problems, determining solutions to problems and analyzing those solutions. In practical reasoning, students study the practicality of software systems by developing software, advancing a prototype solution and determining the software development lifecycle.
