Computer Science

The program is designed to match the first two years of a Bachelor in Science (B.S.) in computer science degree at a baccalaureate institution by providing a seamless transition to upper-division computer science coursework. The curriculum emphasizes the theoretical foundations of mathematics, computing, data structures and algorithms, object-oriented software design and programming, as well as computer architecture and the study of high-level language paradigms. Students practice analysis, design, implementation, and testing of software solutions. Students graduating from the program will be awarded an associate in science degree.   Apply & Register Program Details
