CACS Mission

  • Provide quality, cutting-edge educational experiences to computing majors at the Bachelor's, Master's, and Ph.D. levels.
  • The Department aims to provide students with strong conceptual foundations (theoretical and experimental), and also expose them to the forefront of the developments in the field of computing. Recognizing the applicability of computing to all fields of knowledge and practice, the Department will provide a variety of degrees and programs at each of the degree levels, and will cooperate with other units of the University to provide interdisciplinary degree programs.
  • Be a source of computing expertise to UL Lafayette, Lafayette, and Louisiana State. The Department's mission includes industrial outreach and other methods of sharing its expertise with the University, the Region, and the State, as is appropriate for a department in a State University.
