Computer Science Faculty Mentors

Each declared Computer Science major is assigned to a specific faculty mentor. Meetings with your faculty mentor are only required if you are completing an internship for your capstone, but they are encouraged any time you have questions within your mentor's expertise.

Because of changes to the process at this time, please contact your academic advisor to find out your assigned faculty mentor.
