Students working towards the Bachelor of Science (B.S.) degree in Computer Science at CIDSE will learn to solve technical problems requiring critical and creative thinking in traditional and innovative computer science applications. The course work will challenge students to apply design and development principles in the construction of software systems of varying complexity, and to communicate effectively with a wide range of audiences. Explore the university catalog for details, and see our current course catalog.
The Computer Science program also offers students the chance to focus their degree on either Software Engineering (SE) or Information Assurance (IA). Concentrations allow students to take core classes within a subject area that will meet the Computer Science and/or Technical Elective requirements within one’s degree.
Why Computer Science?
Graduates with a degree in Computer Science find employment working in a variety of capacities ranging from computer and software design to development of information technologies. Their jobs are often distinguished by the high level of theoretical expertise they apply to solving complex problems and the creation and application of new technologies. Some computer science-related jobs may include:
- Creating video games and systems.
- Designing artificial intelligence systems.
- Developing network security applications.
- Inventing and implementing more efficient computing systems for managing and information, including information retrieval and search on the Internet.
With the theoretical foundation built in the program, computer science graduates can excel in system and software development, as well as in designing effective computing solutions for emerging and challenging problems in modern society. Skills in system development and research can lead to entrepreneurial activity that produces innovative computing products and services.
