Mathematics and Computer Science

Facilities

The department is housed in the Priscilla Payne Hurd Academic Complex, a 55,000 square foot, technologically advanced classroom facility containing 14 classrooms. The building was completed in October 2002 and was open for the students in the Spring semester 2003. The building is home to four departments: Mathematics and Computer Science, Psychology, Sociology, and Education. There is also a second floor bridge that connects the building to the Collier Hall of Science.

The Mathematics and Computer Science Department makes its home on the second floor with faculty offices surrounding a students/faculty common area. This common area includes comfortable seating and is utilized for club meetings, social gatherings or students relaxing between classes. Connected to the common area is a reading/study room designated for math and computer science students. Tutors for calculus and statistics are available in the reading room Monday through Thursday evenings.

All classrooms are “smart” classrooms, with computer stations for the instructors, selected multimedia equipment to match the use of the room and a ceiling-mounted projector. One classroom is designed as a mock teaching space for kindergarten through twelfth-grade teacher training. The building also has smaller research rooms, conference rooms, and breakout rooms which lend themselves to small group discussions and seminars.

Computing Resources

The Math and Computer Science Department has a computer science laboratory located on the first floor of the Priscilla Payne Hurd Academic Complex.  The lab contains iMacs for general-purpose computing, 12 Raspberry Pis, and a super computer consisting of 12 quad-core processors and high-end GPUs. The equipment in this lab is supported through the John C. and Agnes M. Dolegiewicz Memorial Endowment Fund.

The computing facilities available to members of the department include technology classrooms and advance computing resources. In addition, the department is a member of the Moravian College Science and Instrumentation Network (MoCoSIN), which provides scientific computing opportunities.

In addition to housing the primary computing resources for the program, the CS lab acts as the hub for program activity. The plasma TV, Apple TV, and Mac mini facilitate frustration-free conference calls and team meetings. The lab has two couches and a set of cubbies where students can store their books and personal items. As a result, computer science students congregate in the lab between classes. And movable furniture and a whiteboard wall help the room transition seamlessly from classroom to club meeting space. 

The campus chapter of the ACM uses this space for their meetings.
