Bachelor of Science in Computer Science
Accredited by the Computing Accreditation Commission (CAC) of ABET (www.abet.org)
This program provides the understanding of hardware and software concepts of computing and information transfer. It covers the design and analysis of algorithms, computer architecture, operating systems, structure of programming languages, and advanced techniques in programming. The program includes courses for Cisco Certified Network Associates (CCNA) and employs a track-based curriculum where the students can choose from Advanced Cisco Networking, Database Management Systems, Solaris and Java Technology, HP UNIX Technology, and Microsoft .NET Technology as their field of specialization.
