Mathematics and Computer Science students at Southwestern apply their knowledge and skills in a variety of ways both in and out of the classroom.
With small classes, students are able to have close contact with professors, who often engage with them outside of class in club activities, competitions, and research projects.
From developing an immersive 3D virtual reality game to teach students languages, to creating mathematical models to better understand and improve the campus handicap accessibility routes, to evolving molecules through computer simulations to have specific chemical properties, our students learn to apply theory to real world issues. Along the way, they develop concise and logical patterns of thinking, hone problem-solving skills and learn critical thought processes that carry them throughout life.
