Program description

Computer Science

Computer Science brings Computers to life.

Without the study of computer science, computers themselves are rather bland little processors that follow simple instructions and accurately solve math algorithms really, really, quickly. Computer Science is both the science and art of creating and streamlining programs for these zippy little processors – programs that can do amazing things for humanity. Computer science is also about problem-solving; by studying and developing computer software, we explore and analyze techniques for solving problems and expanding human capabilities.

Students graduating in Computer Science will be able to:

  1. Analyze complex computing problems and apply principles of computing and other relevant disciplines to identify and recommend solutions.
  2. Design, implement, and evaluate computer-based solutions to meet a given set of computing requirements in the context of computing science.
  3. Communicate effectively in written and oral formats in a variety of professional contexts.
  4. Recognize professional responsibilities and make informed judgments in computing practice based on legal and ethical principles.
  5. Function effectively as a member or leader of a team engaged in activities appropriate to computing science.
  6. Apply computer science theory and software development fundamentals to produce computing-based solutions.
  7. Interpret, calculate, analyze, and clearly communicate quantitative information using mathematical, statistical, or symbolic reasoning to solve complex problems.

With the achievement of these outcomes, we expect our students, within a few years of graduation, to be able to:

  • Engage in the productive practice of computer science to solve problems in a range of applications by applying sound principles of theoretical foundations and mathematical bases and communicate these solutions professionally.
  • Adapt to new technologies, tools and methodologies of computer science practice in the profession and in the academic field.
  • Meet or exceed the expectations of their employers and professional mentors as computer science professionals.
  • Utilize their computer science expertise in the work place to advance their careers or pursue advanced academic studies.
