Computer Science is an exciting, growing and challenging field which impacts almost every aspect of our lives. Medicine, pharmacology, communications, entertainment, automobiles, weather forecasting, mining, manufacturing, forensics, disaster recovery, security, law and business are just a sample of the vast application areas of computer technologies. It would be hard to find some aspect of life that has not benefited from applications of computer science. And what is even more amazing is that what awaits to be done is far greater than what has already been accomplished, and you can be involved in making what is dreamed of today into reality and impact the world and make it a better place.
In addition to this standard four-year program, we offer the ability to specialize with the following concentrations:
The Computer Science program assists ours students in developing real-world skills in programming, networking, security, design and systems management. Because Computer Science is an ever-advancing field, we have dedicated a large portion of the new Science Center to a cutting-edge programming classroom as well as an advanced research laboratory, both of which are equipped with intricate work stations, large screen monitors and updated hardware and software. Besides having up-to-date equipment and facilities, we continually develop new projects that provide students with practical application of their learned computer skills.
There are many areas in the computer science industry from software engineering to database administration. The common skills needed for computer scientists to be successful in their chosen career are their ability to solve problems, excellent communication and working independently and as a member of a team. and Because of this computer science graduates are some of the most sought-after graduates and earn among the highest salaries of any major right out of college.
