The Department of Mathematics and Computer Science offers majors in mathematics and computer science, giving students the knowledge of fundamental principles and the practical concepts and skills necessary for careers as systems analysts, actuaries, econometrists, technical writers, mathematicians, programmers, network administrators, professors, and statisticians.
A laboratory of UNIX-based Sun workstations is located in the Collier Hall of Science. Students have 24-hour access to this facility, which contains graphics workstations and other advanced equipment. In addition, there are two microcomputer classrooms (Windows and Macintosh) in Memorial Hall, and the Mathematics Department has a microcomputer classroom and a small lab equipped with Windows computers in Comenius Hall. Most mathematics courses have a computer lab component, utilizing appropriate software: Maple, the Geometer’s Sketchpad, Minitab, Excel, and other special courseware. Students with their own computers who purchase a network kit from the Center for Information Technology may connect to the campus network directly from their dormitory rooms.
Field study opportunities are available at local industries. Honors and independent study projects as well as special topics courses are offered. The Moravian Mathematics Society, a student chapter of the Mathematical Association of America, sponsors speakers and competitions. Pi Mu Epsilon, the national mathematics honor society, sponsors an annual student conference. The student chapter of the Association for Computing Machinery sponsors lectures and programming competitions.
