The Algorithm

The algorithm: an outline of the steps to solve a problem. Programming is devising algorithms to solve problems; computer programming adds the dimension of implementing the algorithm in a computer language. The organization, problem-solving, and clear expression that go into a good computer program are the same key ingredients of a liberal arts and sciences education in any discipline.

At Beloit

From early courses as introductions to programming and algorithms, students learn to analyze a problem, devise an algorithm to solve it, and implement the algorithm in a computer language.

Through digital electronics and data structures, students weave in calculus and discrete mathematics while learning the “object-oriented” paradigm of programming in Java.

Advanced courses emphasize team programming, working on open source projects, and learning current programming tools, as well as reading and discussing problems and topics of current interest to computer professionals. Our faculty regularly offer advanced courses that reflect their research interests, such as networking, software engineering, advanced digital systems, artificial intelligence databases, and scientific visualization.

For students who are particularly interested in hardware aspects, Beloit offers 32 programs in cooperation with leading engineering universities in computer or electrical engineering.
