Computer Science


The Computer Science major prepares students to develop, maintain and defend large, complex software applications, executive software systems and networks.

Graduates of these programs will be equipped to handle technical and ethical challenges in an appropriate manner, developing strong competencies in reasoning and logic. Equipped with a firm foundation in algorithms and problem solving, they will learn to analyze problems and design, implement and test software solutions.

Accreditation
