Regis University educates men and women of all ages and faiths to take leadership roles and to make a positive impact in a changing society. Standing within the Catholic and United States traditions, we are inspired by the particular Jesuit vision of Ignatius Loyola. This vision challenges us to attain the inner freedom to make intelligent choices. We seek to provide value-centered undergraduate and graduate education, as well as to strengthen commitment to community service. We nurture the life of the mind and the pursuit of truth within an environment conducive to effective teaching, learning and personal development.
As a consequence of Ignatius Loyola's vision, particularly as reflected in his Spiritual Exercises, we encourage all members of the Regis community to learn proficiently, think logically and critically, identify and choose personal standards of values, and be socially responsible. We further encourage the development of the skills and leadership abilities necessary for distinguished professional work and contributions to the improvement and transformation of society.
Rensselaer offers more than 145 programs at the bachelor’s, master’s, and doctoral levels. Students are encouraged to work in interdisciplinary that allow them to combine scholarly work from several departments or schools. The university provides rigorous, engaging, interactive learning environments and campus-wide opportunities for leadership, collaboration, and creativity. For almost two centuries, Rensselaer has maintained its reputation for providing an undergraduate education of undisputed intellectual rigor based on educational innovation in the laboratory, classroom, and studio. The Institute is especially well-known for its success in the transfer of technology from the laboratory to the marketplace so that new discoveries and inventions benefit human life, protect the environment, and strengthen economic development. One root, written into the school’s founding documents, is “...the application of science to the common purposes of life.” The second root, also built into the school’s origin, was the employment of unique educational strategies.
Rhodes mathematics and computer science majors are active and engaged in the life of the department...we′ve mentioned just a few ways that we regularly engage our majors. Our department has seven mathematicians and two computer scientists who are committed to effective classroom teaching, maintain active research programs, and foster partnerships in Memphis and beyond. Investigate our web pages to learn more about the department′s faculty, our course offerings, and the many opportunities we offer.
The department at Rice has a three-sided mission: to create knowledge, to disseminate knowledge, and to provide service to their communities - the local Rice community and the broader community beyond the campus. From anti lock brakes to airbags, secondary oil recovery to weather prediction, advanced imaging technology to digital enhancement in the cinema, computation is changing the world. Contrary to popular belief, the job market in computer science and information technology is robust and growing (a fact highlighted by the recent ACM task force on Outsourcing, chaired by their own Moshe Vardi).
The university’s focus on communication and business skills gives graduates an advantage in the job market. And each student enjoys the small class sizes and personal attention that make RMU a special place to learn.

RIT is a place where brilliant minds assemble and collaborate, where they pool together their individual talents across disciplines in service of big projects and big ideas. It is a vibrant community teeming with students collaborating with experts and specialists: a hub of innovation. It is an intersection of disciplines, a launching pad for a brilliant career, and a highly unique state of mind. The B. Thomas Golisano College of Computing and Information Sciences is newest and largest college of RIT, the Golisano College includes the departments of Information Technology, Computer Science, Software Engineering and Networking, Security, and Systems Administration as well as the Laboratory for Applied Computing. This mixture of applied computing disciplines is unique and allows the college to offer a strong, diverse series of programs centered around computing, from the infrastructure designer's to the end user's point of view.
Roger Williams University is an independent, co-educational institution with a focus on undergraduate learning, paired with strong, related master's degree programs. The University is also home to Rhode Island's only law school. No matter what their major, their transdisciplinary general education program provides all Roger Williams graduates with a comprehensive foundation in the liberal arts, where they develop the problem solving, reasoning, communications and teamwork attributes that employers seek. The Computer Information Systems major prepares students for careers that integrate state-of-the-art concepts and technologies with a solid foundation in established business computing practice. This combination of disciplines provides students with the skills employers need for maintaining today's systems as well as the skills required for the development of next-generation systems. The program is intensely hands-on, as the instructional focus is on building solutions to business problems.
The CS group for women called "gEECS" i.e. girls in Electrical Engineering, Computer Engineering, Computer Science and Software Engineering meets three to four times a term and gives the women an opportunity to get to know each other and plan outreach activities with middle and high school girls. Along with DePauw University and Indiana University at Bloomington, they are organizing INWIC 2008 (Indiana Women in Computing). This is a conference for women in computer science programs in Indiana and is a great opportunity for their students to network with other young women in the field and share their ideas. Their faculty teaches two-day workshops for high school Computer Science teachers in Indiana, to help them prepare their students for the CS Advanced Placement exams.
From the modest normal school begun 75 years ago, Rowan University has become an extraordinary comprehensive institution that has improved the quality of life for the citizens of New Jersey and the surrounding states. Rowan University has evolved from its humble beginning in 1923 as a normal school, with a mission to train teachers for South Jersey classrooms, to a comprehensive university with a strong regional reputation. A leading public institution, Rowan University combines liberal education with professional preparation from the baccalaureate through the doctorate. As a Computer Science major, students master current technology and develop the versatility needed to adapt in this fast evolving field. The program focuses on developing students as flexible professionals equipped to learn new technologies and principles. Students will specialize in a specific area from software engineering, networking and operating systems, information technology, programming languages and compilers, and artificial intelligence.
Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey, is a leading national public research university and the state’s preeminent, comprehensive public institution of higher education. Rutgers is dedicated to teaching that meets the highest standards of excellence; to conducting research that breaks new ground; and to turning knowledge into solutions for local, national, and global communities. As it was at their founding in 1766, the heart of their mission is preparing students to become productive members of society and good citizens of the world. Rutgers teaches across the full educational spectrum: preschool to precollege; undergraduate to graduate and postdoctoral; and continuing education for professional and personal advancement. The Computer Science Department was established at Rutgers in 1969. Programs leading to a Bachelor's degree in computer science are offered by the undergraduate colleges at Rutgers. The faculty of the department are members of the School of Arts and Sciences.
