College of Computer and Information Science
Computer Science Program
The Bachelor of Science in Computer Science program prepares students to become computer scholars equipped with the complete tools in planning, organizing, researching, analyzing, and developing algorithms, computer systems and software applications for windows, web, and mobile platforms.
The program focuses on the application of various knowledge and skills and in formal research in the field of computer science.
- Articulate expertise in formulating and solving problems of interest, through the application of technology, and by using mathematical foundations, algorithmic principles, and computer science theory in the design and development of computer-based systems and processes.
- Perform tasks effectively as individuals and team members in the workplace growing into highly technical or project management and leadership roles.
- Pursue life-long learning enabling them to adapt and grow as organizational responsibilities change.
Graduates of the Bachelor of Science in Science in Computer program are expected to demonstrate:
- Apply knowledge of computing fundamentals, knowledge of computing specialization, and mathematics, science, and domain knowledge appropriate for the computing specialization to the abstraction and conceptualization of computing models from defined problems and requirements.
- Identify, analyze, formulate, research literature, and solve complex computing problems and requirements reaching substantiated conclusions using fundamental principles of mathematics, computing sciences, and relevant domain disciplines.
- Apply mathematical foundations, algorithmic principles, and computer science theory in the modeling and design of computer-based systems in a way that demonstrates comprehension of the tradeoffs involved in design choices.
- Implement information security in the design, development and use of information systems.
- Design and evaluate solutions for complex computing problems, and design and evaluate systems, components, or processes that meet specified needs with appropriate consideration for public health and safety, cultural, societal, and environmental considerations.
- Create, select, adapt, and apply appropriate techniques, resources, and modern computing tools to complex computing activities, with an understanding of the limitations to accomplish common goals.
- Function effectively as an individual or a member or leader in diverse teams and in multidisciplinary settings.
- Communicate effectively with the computing community and with society at large about complex computing activities by being able to comprehend and write effective reports, design documentation, make effective presentation, and give and understand clear instructions.
- Recognize the legal, social, ethical, and professional issues involved in the utilization of computer technology and be guided by the adoption of appropriate professional, ethical, and legal practices both in local and global community.
- Recognize the need for and engage in an independent and learning for continual development as a computing professionals.
