Computer Science and Technology
You’ve always wanted to be on the cutting edge.
Plymouth State University’s computer science programs impart the knowledge, critical thinking and communication skills, and experience needed to enter the many rapidly developing and vital fields that define today’s high-technology world. A hands-on approach to learning builds on top of extensive laboratory opportunities, individual interactions and support, and significant group projects.
The BA major in computer science focuses on the design and development of software systems with an emphasis on the creation of new technology, while the BS in information technology provides students with knowledge and skills to apply computer technology to solve real-world problems. Focused minors in computing, cybersecurity, data analytics, and information technology enable students from both tech related and other fields of study to expand their knowledge base while gaining additional career path possibilities.
Plymouth State is the first and only New Hampshire institution to offer a BS in robotics degree program, and students have advanced opportunities to learn and explore in the University’s impressive new robotics laboratory. The University received $1 million in federal funding to build the state-of-the-industry facility to develop the next generation of robotics workforce and machine-learning manufacturers. The facility features equipment and tools on par with the nation’s top institutions, including 3-D printing, laser cutting, milling, and Computer Numerical Control (CnC) workstations, as well as FANUC collaborative robots, which are employed in industrial settings around the world.
