Mathematics and Computer Science

Mathematics and Computer Science provide the foundation for molding society, bringing order to a chaotic world and transforming data into information.

The tower on Pfahler Hall is visible throughout campus.

The programs in the Mathematics and Computer Science Departments provide students with the tools for analyzing and organizing data, as well as the theoretical underpinnings for modeling important and interesting concepts. These programs provide strong backgrounds in logical reasoning, analytical skills, and the ability to learn new techniques and technologies. All of these attributes are valuable in a variety of industries. Indeed, the mathematical sciences make significant contributions to society in forms of engineering, medicine, physics, economics, politics, and many more. Our graduates are extremely successful and go onto work for some of the best companies in the world. Others go on to elite graduate programs. Contact the department for further questions.

Teaming Up to Set Math in Motion

Instructor of mathematics and statistics, Lisa Grossbauer, has a special kind of exam for her calculus class this finals season.

A former senior software analyst at Lockheed Martin, Grossbauer pulls on her industry experience to cultivate a practical learning experience for her students. In the classroom, she focusses on equipping her students with the skills needed to succeed in their future professions (and in life in general), and to have fun doing it.

The most prominent skill on her mind? Collaboration.

She recalls late nights with colleagues, ordering take out and putting their minds together to solve a problem.

She saw that same need for collaboration all throughout the Covid-19 pandemic. “It was a collaborative effort to try and put food on the table,” Grossbauer says.

Her goal with this special collaboration quiz (a Rube-Goldberg invention project) is to get students comfortable with collaborating, and to enjoy their time together.
