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

Program Goals

  • To provide students with a foundation in a general education.
  • To prepare students for transfer to a baccalaureate of science degree in Computer Science.

Program Student Learning Outcomes

At the end of the program, the graduate will be able to:

  1. Analyze, design, develop and test computer based applications using problem solving and analytical skills developed throughout the program.
  2. As part of a team, develop software applications that meet program requirements including the production of design and formal test plan documentation.
  3. Apply scientific and mathematical principles to study of computer science.

Employment Opportunities
