Taylor has a strong claim to having the best computer science program among the Christian colleges. We have wonderful students, amazing alumni, and strong facilities and equipment. Since the late 70’s, the department has done dozens of projects that have been used by our clients. Many of these have focused on the church and missions community and have made a real contribution to the clients. It is a real pleasure to teach at Taylor.
