The computer science department is also involved in the Oberlin Center for Computation and Modeling (OCCaM).  OCCaM is an interdisciplinary research organization founded in 2005 and is devoted to promoting computation and modeling at Oberlin.  The center helps coordinate and organize the various researchers on campus who use scientific techniques of model building and computer data analysis.  The faculty span both the natural and social sciences.  There is a 64-node Beowulf cluster available for participant use.

Student/Faculty Research

Computer Science is a rapidly developing field, and our faculty are involved in diverse research areas within it.  There are many opportunities for CS students to work directly with faculty on a number of research projects.  Students are able to gain valuable experience while collaborating with their professors throughout their Oberlin careers.  Most frequently, these research projects take place during the summer as part of the Oberlin Summer Research Institute.  However, there are also opportunities to continue investigations during the year and as a Winter Term project.  Oberlin students also participate in NSF funded research projects at other institutions during the summer as part of the Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) program.
