Division: Math & Engineering
Computer Science is the study of the design and use of computer software and hardware. Computer Science students will be offered an introductory foundation for the field of Computer Science through the study of object-oriented programming, discrete math and the functionality, organization, and implementation of computer systems. The student will acquire the knowledge and skill sets necessary for success in a baccalaureate-level Computer Science program.
