The rapidly growing Department of Computer Science currently includes four full-time faculty and two professional academic advisors. As part of the FHSU Strategic Plan, the Department plans to hire two additional tenure-track faculty to increase the faculty count by 50% in 2022 in concert with the launch of a new M.S. degree program. The Department is located in a newly renovated space in Rarick Hall alongside the Department of Mathematics.


The Werth College of Science, Technology, and Mathematics was formed in 2015 by bringing together the departments of Agriculture, Applied Technology, Biological Sciences, Chemistry, Computer Science, Geosciences, Mathematics, and Physics. The college includes approximately 70 full-time faculty, 1800 undergraduate majors, and 50+ graduate students. It also makes significant contributions to the university's General Education program and to the Kansas Academy of Mathematics and Science, which is an early-college program for high-achieving high-school students. Undergraduate students participate in technical, classroom, field, and lab experiences that many schools would reserve for graduate students. Our academic programs are innovative and our facilities are outstanding. The Werth College of Science, Technology, and Mathematics teachers embrace a one-on-one teaching and mentoring philosophy and provide robust research opportunities for our students.
