University of Dubuque Computer Studies and Mathematics

The Computer Studies and Mathematics Department (CSM) at the University of Dubuque (UD) offers students an excellent education and opportunities to participate in major-related extracurricular activities. CSM students have opportunities to engage in major-related activities such as participating in mathematics and computer-related competitions, being involved in STEM festivals in area schools, joining the computer club, and attending conferences. In addition to learning and befriending students with similar interests, these activities allow students to gain leadership experience, and they help enhance the students’ resumes. Enterprising students even present at the conferences.
