Computer Science


An ongoing $12 million facilities renovation began in 2012, the inaugural year of SEAS. Laboratories and classrooms received new technologies, machinery, and equipment, all of which are accessible to trained undergraduate engineering and computer science students. Hofstra is now home to a wide range of tools that enhance our students' education. As entrepreneurship is an integral focus of the program, technologies such as the 3D printer laboratory allows students to create prototypes and experiment with projects at early stages in their careers.
