Build the future, communicate with computers and experiment with the newest technologies.

The computer science program at Pacific University follows Association of Computing Machinery (ACM) guidelines and includes both object-oriented programming and procedural programming paradigms. Languages used throughout the four years of study include C++, C, Java, Python, and PHP. Students have access to state-of-the-art lab environments for serious software development and are exposed to a variety of industry standard software tools and practices. Internships with local companies such as Intel, McAfee, WebMD and HP provide real-world experience.

Pacific students have a new place to make their ideas take shape — the Boxer Makerspace. It’s an inviting new area on the second floor of the Tim & Cathy Tran Library where students can use 3D printers, a laser engraver, a vacuum formbox and other tools to create prototypes of their own design.
