To begin, we’ve taken computing to a new level. The School of Computing (SoC) offers innovative and uniquely multi-disciplinary programs that prepare graduates for entrepreneurial, technical and executive leadership positions within industry or in graduate school.

In the School of Computing we go beyond academic rigor. We are intent on bringing our students collaborative partnerships with industry, business, government, schools and nonprofit organizations that provide invaluable, real-world learning experiences. This experiential commitment to learning also includes faculty who have, or are presently in, leadership technical positions and businesses. In short, when a student leaves here he or she is competent, confident and a decided asset to their future employers from day one.

Spend some time on this site. Take a look at our programs in computer science, software engineering, cybersecurity, information technology, and more. Discover how we can prepare you for one of this country's most in-demand and well-compensated professions. Learn how Lipscomb’s faith mission makes your learning here richer and more globally significant.

This is an exciting time to be in the SoC! Please feel free to contact me for more information about our programs. I also welcome your comments and suggestions as we move forward with our quest for better living through computing.
