Computer Science Student Experience

Baker computer science students have a multitude of opportunities for involvement in and out of the classroom. Small class sizes allow you maximum interaction with classmates and professors. Computer science students also take advantage of many activities beyond the classroom.

Research & Application

As part of the Baker curriculum, you will be actively engaged in the practical application of computer programming, database development and endless other usages of computers to enhance modern business, science, engineering and other fields. Recognizing that practical experience is essential in the modern professional world, we give you ample opportunity to practice the skills and knowledge you will learn in your computer science courses.

Research Experiences for Undergraduates

Baker students have been successful in obtaining research experiences for undergraduates. Held at major research universities in the summer, REUs are opportunities for undergraduate students in the fields of math, science and technology to take part in major research projects. REUs can offer you experience in various practical applications of mathematical theories and principles.


We encourage you to engage in as many real-world experiences as possible, allowing you to earn practical experience while developing the skills and knowledge you'll need as a working professional.
