Department of Mathematics and Computer Science
Dr. Anne Quinn
Edinboro University’s Mathematics and Computer Science students enjoy state-of the-art learning facilities located primarily in Ross Hall, one of the University’s most recently updated facilities.
The Department maintains computer lab space, a computer science research lab, and a math research library, and provides a wide variety of software for student use. Some examples include MathSoft MathCad, Microsoft Office and Microsoft Visual Studio. These systems have a broad base for mathematics and computer science users—from students taking general education courses to major students. Languages available include C++, Prolog, Visual Basic and LISP. Linux/unix machines are used primarily as development systems to support the Computer Science courses.
Constructed in 1962 as the University’s main dining facility, Ross Hall received a multi-million dollar total renovation, completed in 2013, and now houses the departments of Mathematics and Computer Science, as well as the offices of Technology and Communications. On the upper level are six state-of-the-art classrooms, computer labs, the mathematics research lab and the Technology Help Center, while the lower level is home to Learning Technology Services and three conference room spaces with visual display technology.
