Overview

The Computer Science curriculum familiarizes you with the complex and ever-changing world of today’s software developers and software engineers. The goal of this curriculum is to educate you on the design, development, and implementation of software-based solutions and other software products for the business, entertainment, and consumer markets. To achieve this goal, the curriculum is designed to provide you with a comprehensive understanding of programming languages and skills, software-design skills, and various computer science methodologies. You will engage in application creation by participating in various computer science projects throughout the degree program that will equip you to understand the differences between small programming projects and large-enterprise software-systems projects. Through this hands-on curriculum, you will also be able to design and develop your own software project for emerging technologies. Furthermore, you will gain the critical-thinking and professional skills necessary for effective software development.

Objective

Associate's Objective  In addition to a foundational understanding of programming skills, today’s computer scientists require a breadth of knowledge and skills to compete in this dynamic industry. The goal of the Computer Science Associate of Science degree program is to develop your coding and production capabilities and prepare you for entry-level programming positions in this field, such as programmer, junior software developer, tool programmer, quality assurance tester, and a variety of others. Through project-based learning, you will be able to create your own coding and computer science projects and articulate and deliver these projects through appropriate communication strategies.
