Hendrix College strives to provide the best undergraduate computer
science program within our region of the United States. What are some
distinctive things about the computer science program at
Students complete a wide variety of projects for learning
about the state of the art, going beyond the textbook to reading
research papers, designing and implementing software, and
performing original research.
The faculty are
consistently dedicated to outstanding teaching while maintaining an
active program of scholarly work.
Our facilities feature a Linux

though students can often complete assignments at home, they often
work in here where students can brainstorm with classmates about how
to approach projects.

particular highlight over the last several years has been a
weekend trip to a regional computer science conference, where
students attend research presentations, compete in a programming
contest, and sometimes present research of their own.
Our graduates have consistently found
that their experience in computer science prepares them well both for
industry jobs (typically software development or information technology
management) and for graduate study in computer science.
