The Department of Computer and Mathematical Sciences offers bachelor of science and bachelor of arts degrees in mathematics, computer science and minors in mathematics, computer science and physics.
The degree in computer science has three areas of concentration: software/hardware systems, information systems, and an individualized program of study. These are designed so the student can convert readily to the computer science major.
The department also offers an Associate of Science in General Engineering (ASGE). Transferable courses in engineering are available (with or without a ASGE) for students who wish to undertake the first 2-3 years (depending on entrance skills) of engineering studies at NMHU then transfer to accredited engineering programs nationally for completion of a professional BS in engineering degree.
The Mission of the Department of Computer and Mathematical Sciences is to train students in the fields of mathematics, computer science, physics, and engineering. By encouraging and developing problem solving, critical/analytical thinking, and practical, laboratory-based skills, our students will be well prepared for careers in any combination of these fields, either via solid preparation for further graduate education or immediate entrance into the workforce (industry, teaching, and national laboratories).
The department resides within the Ivan Hilton Science Building on the Highlands main campus.
As part of the physics program, the department maintains an astronomical observatory located on the roof of the Ivan Hilton Science Building. The observatory is equipped with a 16-inch Meade research-grade telescope.
This major is under the College of Arts and Sciences
