Computer Science

Cyber Security Awareness Month

The computer science curriculum provides students with course work comparable to the first two years for a bachelor’s degree in computer science. The ACM curricula recommendations for computer science (2001) serve as the basis for this area of study. Course work introduces students to the concept of a program and techniques of good program design, to internal data representations and common data structures, to elementary mathematics associated with computer systems and to a working knowledge of a high level programming language, and assembly programming language. The following curriculum in computer science has been designed as a guide for those students wishing to prepare for a bachelor’s degree in computer science. A student studying computer science should contact the department chair for the first semester to get a degree plan.
