Overview

Computer Science is a rich academic field that studies the computational structures and processes that appear throughout the natural and human worlds. The SLAI Computer Science Program approaches computer science with a liberal arts perspective, looking more broadly than programming alone.

Computer Science is a rich academic field that studies the computational structures and processes that appear throughout the natural and human worlds. The SLAI Computer Science Program approaches computer science with a liberal arts perspective, looking more broadly than programming alone.

Students who attend the program will learn how to think about finding computational solutions to problems of interest that lie beyond the realm of the computer screen, and how to program computers to implement such solutions. They’ll do this by engaging in classroom learning, participating in hands-on lab activities, and working in small teams on projects directed by college faculty and mentored by undergraduate research assistants.

Our 2020 Computer Science course topics are: Robotics, Computer Vision, Molecular Programming, and Game Theory.

During a 3 week program, students will engage with faculty and Carleton undergraduate research assistants in lab-based and classroom-based computing research related to faculty and student interests. Each participant will self-select into a research group consisting of about 12 students. The students will take courses and conduct collaborative guided research in small groups. Students will complete a collaborative guided project which will culminate in a demonstration at the Research Symposium held at the end of the program.
