Lead the way to a better digital future!

At Calvin, you’ll master the intricacies of computer science and learn to apply them to anything from database architecture to machine learning.

Along the way, you’ll have all kinds of experiences that make you a sharper and more discerning thinker and problem-solver. In rigorous courses, you’ll dig into front-page topics like computer security, web development, and deep learning. Work directly with professors on high-end, cutting-edge equipment you’d normally only find at a tier-one research school.

You'll join a community that believes that computers, apps, and digital systems are not ends in themselves, but rather areas we are called to explore and develop in service to God and our neighbor. At Calvin, you will not only develop technical competence, but be challenged to think deeply about creating applications that make a positive impact on today’s world.
