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.
