Computer Science [clear]

Create your own computer games. Code a compiler or simple operating system. Build autonomous robots that can navigate a maze. Compete in national cyber-security competitions.

Computer Science is a dynamic and interdisciplinary field of study. Evergreen's computer science programs will teach you how to design, build and understand complex computer systems. Whether at the introductory or advanced level you will get to apply these skills to practical problems using knowledge from other domains, such as music, art, linguistics, physics, statistics and ecology. You can explore computer science at a range of levels, whether you just want to gain a basic understanding ofhow computers work or you want to be a computer science researcher or professional.

Evergreen provides the opportunity to work on group projects that apply theory to real problems and participate in exciting challenges. For example, Computing Practice and Theory has combined the analysis of forest ecology data from the Pacific Northwest with machine learning. Evergreen has an active student cybersecurity group. Students have participated in cybersecurity competitions and the Gnu-educks has done very well in national competitions such as CSAW and the Collegiate Cyberdefense Competition.

Evergreen students are doing research in exciting projects, such as creating a framework for designing cybersecurity games and implementing a network reconnaissance game, integrated speech recognition with robotics: giving voice commands to a Scribbler robot, and configuring a next-generation firewall.
