Computer Science at Rowan

The Computer Science department is committed to creating a student-centered learning environment that promotes close student-faculty relationships and enhances intellectual development.

The Computer Science Department also continues to grow its curricular offerings in many cutting-edge computing disciplines including mobile development, cyber security, big data, cloud computing, parallel processing, bioinformatics, virtual reality, computer game design, and others. To this end, in Fall 2016, the department welcomed two new tenure track faculty with expertise in Data Analytics and Machine Learning. Currently, the department is looking to hire additional faculty with expertise in Cyber-Security. We have also initiated several Certificates of Undergraduate Studies programs to enable students from outside our majors to achieve official Rowan credentials in several different computer science domains.

The Computer Science Department also supports a number of very important student-centric initiatives including student mentoring, learning assistants, summer internships, and long-term co-op programs. We continue to expand our curricular and research collaboration efforts with industrial partners that include Lockheed Martin, ASRC Federal Mission Solution, the Federal Aviation Administration, JP Morgan Chase, Bristol Myers Squibb, Perka, and others.

A vast majority of our students have job prospects lined up even before graduation. Many of our students end up working for industry leaders and top government organization such as, Symantec, Lockheed Martin, ASRC Federal Mission Solution, Federal Aviation Administration, US Navy, FBI, Perka, Comcast, SAP, and many others.
