As an undergraduate computer science student at Le Moyne, you'll learn how to: design and implement software; develop effective ways to solve computing problems, and devise new ways to use computational devices. Le Moyne's computer science program balances the theoretical and practical aspects of the discipline within a strong liberal arts framework.
As a computer science (CS) major at Le Moyne, you will be part of a small close knit community with lots of interaction with faculty members. Our introductory course has weekly laboratory sessions taught by faculty, where you will get hands-on experience with topics learned in the classroom. Our courses emphasize the fundamental concepts of computer science, treating today's popular languages, tools, and systems as current examples of these concepts. Our goal is not just to teach you the latest trending technologies but to prepare you for the dynamic nature of our field.
The College offers the following degree options:
The two pre-engineering concentrations result in a B.S. degree in computer science from Le Moyne and leads to acceptance into Syracuse University's Master's program in either computer science or computer engineering.
All computer science students must take eight required CSC courses, one required MTH course, and at least four upper-level CSC elective courses. A student must take at least two programming-intensive electives and at least one theory-intensive elective. Additional requirements include taking a two-course sequence in a foreign language and completing a minor in another discipline. See the Le Moyne College catalog for a complete description of the requirements to earn a B.A. or B.S. in computer science.
Given the ubiquitous nature of computing tools across most industry sectors, a computer science minor complements many majors. To complete a minor in computer science, a student must take five computer science courses that are numbered 175 and higher.

For Tyler Schmitt ‘17, creating coding for satellites in space all comes down to the right software.
Schmitt was recently published in the International Journal of Science and Applied Information Technology for research he performed with Dr. Ronald Marsh, Chair of the Department of Computer Science at the University of North Dakota. Receiving a Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) sponsored by the National Science Foundation (NSF) and the U.S. Department of Defense, Schmitt spent ten weeks over the summer working with the Open Prototype for Educational Nanosats (OPEN) program research team under Dr. Marsh.
