Computer Science & Math at Hiram
Computer science and mathematics students gain a deep knowledge of basic principles, and regularly engage in real-world application of their studies.
Students who pursue studies in computer science or mathematics will leave Hiram with a challenging and rigorous undergraduate education and plenty of practical experience. Both majors require an individual research project, and students have the opportunity to expand their interests through clubs and organizations focused on their interests.
Mathematics and computer science students interested in pursuing computer or system science and control engineering as a career can spend three years at Hiram, followed by two years at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio, and earn two Bachelor’s degrees.
Hiram College has more than 60 registered student clubs and organizations, including academic societies, cultural groups, sports clubs, political action and special interest groups. The Hiram College Association of Computing Machinery may be of special interest.
Both computer science and mathematics majors are required to engage in research for their senior capstone projects. During their final year, seniors propose and complete a research plan, investigate the topic, and prepare a paper and public presentation/demonstration of their findings.
