Computer Science, Design Thinking, and Entrepreneurship
Through a range of course offerings, the Computer Science, Design Thinking, and Entrepreneurship Department provides students with opportunities to engage in hands-on, real-world, creative problem-solving in a number of different disciplines (engineering, manufacturing, robotics, computer science, and entrepreneurship). These courses prioritize work that partners with authentic audiences, including on-campus partners and businesses in the Hartford area. Significant time in most of the courses will be spent in the Pearse Hub for Innovation (PHI), where students will engage in our design-thinking process: gather, generate, build, and share.
