The goal of the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science at Claflin University is to give training in logical thought and expression, while preparing students for many careers as software and hardware professionals, in research and education, and business and cyber security analysis.
Our objective is achieved through concerned and quality teaching of the concepts, hands-on training in laboratories to enhance learning, independent research and summer internships.
The programs concentrate on areas where mathematics and computing are most relevant to each other, emphasizing the bridges between theory and practice. It offers opportunities for potential computer scientists both to develop a deeper understanding of the mathematical foundations of their subject and to acquire a familiarity with the mathematics of application areas where computers can solve otherwise difficult problems. It also gives mathematicians access to both a practical understanding of the use of computers and a deeper understanding of the limits on the use of computers in their own subject.
