Mission of Siena's Computer Science Department

To provide a curriculum and environment that provides students with a foundation in computer science upon which a lifetime of on-going learning and professional development can be built. We aim to develop our students’ critical thinking and communication skills, preparing them for future leadership roles or the pursuit of advanced degrees. To graduate students with skills relevant in the marketplace, our department seeks to incorporate state of the art hardware and software into our courses whenever appropriate. We are committed to offering courses that encourage student participation, hands-on learning, and teamwork. We believe it is important for students across the college to have the opportunity to learn about computer science, and therefore we offer minors, auxiliary courses in support of other majors, and core courses. To attract and maintain a vibrant and engaged faculty, we strive to provide career and research opportunities for their scholarly and teaching development.
