Note from the Chair

Do friends and family frequently turn to you for computer-related assistance? Do you take pride in solving their tech dilemmas? If so, you're in the right place—welcome to Notre Dame University-Louaize (NDU)'s Computer Science Department!

Our computer science majors explore computer systems, and the way humans and computers interact from a scientific perspective. Our curriculum covers both the theory and design of software and hardware. In essence, computers can be programmed to execute nearly any task you can envision, and the art of translating your ideas into computer programs is an unparalleled skill.

The process of translating your ideas into computer programs is unparalleled; your concepts must be meticulously organized and highly structured for a computer to grasp them. The programming endeavor is exceptionally demanding, and it's reasonable to anticipate that only individuals with the requisite discipline and proper education can truly excel. Here, at the Computer Science Department of NDU, we've meticulously crafted our program, striking a harmonious balance between theory and practical application. As a result, when you complete your studies, you will be thoroughly equipped for the job market and well-prepared should you choose to pursue graduate studies.

Over the years, the Department of Computer Science at NDU has developed a strong reputation for providing diverse opportunities in undergraduate and postgraduate education and research. With a clear vision for the future, we continue to introduce new initiatives and programs, enabling both our faculty and students to reach their full potential and meet the ever-evolving demands of the market.
