What makes your mobile devices do all the things they do? What's happening beneath the screen, and who develops these new and innovative ideas originally and then figures out how to make them happen so effortlessly for the user? Such is the nature of the computer scientist's work. Coming up with ingenious ideas that have never been done before, and figuring out how to harness complex mathematics and technological mechanics to make them happen, are the challenges and passions of students majoring in Computer Science & Innovation.
Computer Science is the most creative and diverse of all the technology fields. If you can imagine an outcome, this major will provide you the tools to create it. In addition to providing a solid grounding in all the most significant areas of computer science, Champlain's unique major connects the dots to the latest technological developments each year. These cutting-edge components of our curriculum constitute the "Innovation" of the Computer Science & Innovation major-an advanced feature you simply will not experience in any other computer science program today. You may specialize in Mobile Application Development or Software Engineering, or you may elect a minor tailored to your interests and career goals.
Additionally, the program features a sequence of Innovation courses-an advanced feature of our curriculum that students would be highly unlikely to find in any other computer science program in the country today.
