The Computer Science Curriculum provides a strong foundation for students interested in pursuing a bachelor’s degree in either software development, computer science or other computer related fields.
The curriculum has been strongly influenced by the Association of Computing Machinery’s (ACM) guidelines for associate degrees in software.
