Loras offers two different tracks within the Computing and Information Technology
Major; Management Information Systems within the Division of Business Administration and Computer Science
within the Division of Mathematics, Engineering and Computer Science.
Mathematics requirements depend upon the chosen track within the major. Students must choose one of the tracks before their junior year. Many students find it natural to continue a lifelong interest
in computers with a degree in Computer Information Technology. A continual demand for computing and information technology professionals in a variety of industries keeps the program thriving and up-to-date. Loras’ commitment to technology provides every student with a laptop, making it that much easier for Information Technology majors to have consistent access to the most important tool of their trade.
Graduates in computer information science have gone to work in the following fields:
insurance software development
avionics software development
back-office to point-of-sale hardware

Computer Science students have presented papers and won awards before graduation at conferences of national professional organizations.
The Loras College Mathematics and Computer Science Division offers several Awards and Scholarships yearly to students. We also offers support to students who wish to grade student papers, work in the Loras College Mathematics Lab, or work as peer assistants.
Loras College faculty are extremely active in the academic and civic communities. Faculty members are volunteers for several local organizations including different churches and scouting organizations.
