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. Specific outcomes and learning objectives of the computer science major provide students the ability to: analyze, design, verify, validate, implement and maintain complex software systems within cost and schedule; apply discrete mathematics, probability and statistics and relevant topics in computer science and supporting disciplines; work in one or more significant application domains; describe and apply professional and ethical responsibility; design and conduct experiments; analyze and interpret data.
Additionally, the school offers an Intelligence cognate which combines the key elements of Computer Science with the skills needed to needed for work in the intelligence community, Homeland Security, NSA, DISA, U.S. military and like agencies.
The program prepares students to serve their country by positively influencing the Intelligence Community and national security.
At Liberty University School of Engineering and Computational Sciences the Computer Science programs provide an array of the foundational principles of computer science and intelligence. Our primary goal is to develop Christ-centered men and women with the values, knowledge and skills essential to positively influence computer engineering related industries.
