Computer Science Department
As detailed below, DePauw Computer Science graduates pursue careers with companies that provide hardware, software or services for use in business, education, science, government, entertainment and research. Students may also choose to attend graduate school to further their study.
Recent Computer Science graduates work at dozens of companies including Amazon, Google, DyKnow, Microsoft, etc.
Recent Computer Science graduates have attended many graduate schools including Clemson, Northwestern, University of Illinois, Indiana University, etc.
DePauw Computer Science majors excel in the classroom, in athletic competitions, in a variety of leadership positions on campus, and in their graduate study and careers after leaving DePauw. You can read about some recent student and graduate achievements in our News Stories. Use the following links to learn about the academic awards our students have won in their time at DePauw.
As a culmination of the computer science major, each senior completes an independent project. Each student describes his or her project idea in a formal project proposal. Projects typically involve the design, implementation, testing and documentation of a software system that builds on earlier coursework both inside and outside the department. Students are mentored by a faculty member and meet regularly in groups to present their work and to discuss related topics such as the ethical implications of their work.

Student ACM Chapter
DePauw students organize a local chapter of the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) called ACM @ DePauw. The group sponsors various events to help students interested in computer science to learn more about the discipline.
Robotics Club aims to establish a platform for students interested in robotics. Members are provided with free tools and parts to work on whatever projects they wish. Meetings Monday and Thursdays at 4:00 in Julian 153.
DePauw Data Science Group
DePauw Data Science Group is dedicated to the study of data science, artificial intelligence, and machine learning at DePauw. We learn about data science topics from experienced students, professors, and even professionals in the field. We also work on our own projects as well as compete in Hackathons and programming competitions.
