Computer Science

The disciplinary stamp of computer science at the University of Dallas is that of the 2,500 year old discipline of mathematics, both theoretical and applied.

In computer science, we study algorithms, programs and programming, and computational systems. The main goal of the discipline at UD is to build a systematic body of knowledge, theories and models that explains the properties of computational systems and to demonstrate how this body of knowledge can be used to produce solutions to real world problems. Computer science is the intellectual discipline widely accepted as the ascendant field of this century. Truly, computer science is a fitting discipline of study for a "Catholic university for independent thinkers."
