Welcome to the home page of Lewis University Department of Computer and Mathematical Sciences(CaMS). These are exciting times to be a Math or Computer Science major, particularly at Lewis. Every day, new technologies are being developed that were created by computer scientists like our students. Some of these technologies may fundamentally change how we work, play, and communicate. And all of these technologies function based on the laws of math. Few other majors can boast the opportunity to transform the world the way Computer Science can, and few other majors enable you to understand those transformative forces the way Mathematics can. At Lewis, we are looking for ways to bring that potential to fruition, preparing students to be tomorrow's computer innovators and problem solvers.
