Last Thursday, the Earlham Hackers Club met for the first time in this academic year. Many of the attendees were first-year students and they were all eager to be part of the Hackathon that the club intends to run in Spring 2019. This will be the second time the event occurs.

Welcome to Earlham Computer Science Department
It is our pleasure to welcome you to the Earlham College Computer Science Department. Our diverse faculty and rich facilities provide an environment that fosters an interdisciplinary approach to theory and practice in the field. Computer Science works closely with Mathematics, Physics and most of the other Natural Sciences, and has ties to linguistics and logic.
Congratulations to our graduates of 2018
Our department consists of diverse faculty of professors all of whom are active researchers in areas including artificial intelligence, parallel processing, load balancing, algorithms, complexity theory, networking, and programming languages.
Our curriculum is built on the fundamental paradigms of the discipline: theory, abstraction and design. These three are woven throughout the Department, binding the sometimes disparate topics of Computer Science into a cohesive body of knowledge and experience.
The Computer Science Department organizes a number of applied CS groups. The primary aim of their projects is to give students an opportunity to apply and extend knowledge gained in the classroom to “real world” software and hardware projects.
Hear what our students and faculty have to share.

Flannery Currin Class of 2019 Hometown: Dallas, Texas Major at Earlham: Computer Science, Psychology Flannery Currin ’19 once dreaded computer courses. That time was during grade school and, she says, “I didn’t have a good concept of what computer science was.” But after a few courses, Currin found that applications of discrete math appealed to her. It […]
During the summer break, Rei Rembeci ’19 and Abraham Oh ’17 gave a tour of our makerspace at Earlham College to students from the Third Grade Reading Academy. They showed the young students the Lego Mindstorms kits and what our students have been creating with them in the Turing lab. They also demonstrated how to […]
Chau Pham Class of 2019 Hometown: Hanoi, Vietnam Major at Earlham: Computer Science Keeping up with Chau Pham ’19 is no easy task. Last semester she went to four tech conferences and competed in two hackathons. “It’s challenging, but there is a way to make it work,” she says. “These experiences are valuable.” During the conferences, she […]
We strongly recommend that you visit Earlham’s campus and meet with one of our counselors. Together, the visit and the interview are invaluable tools for helping you and us discover whether Earlham is the right college for you.
