Description
The program includes the study of the underlying principles as well as the specific applications of information manipulation. Offering both theoretical and applied courses designed to develop the creativity and other patterns of thought required of the professional computer scientist.
This curriculum is recommended for students preparing to transfer into a baccalaureate degree program in Computer Science.
Completion of CSC 101 (or CIS 100 and CSC 101) with a grade of C or higher is required before taking any other CSC course.
As a basic transfer program intended to accommodate students with varied career goals in the computer science field, the curriculum makes available several elective options in the second year. They include courses in computer science, mathematics, and natural science. Such flexibility will allow the student to pursue a course of study consistent with his or her needs.
RECOMMENDED PREPARATION: Students who plan to complete this program in two years should have successfully completed four years of high school mathematics (including Precalculus), and two years of laboratory sciences. Three years of laboratory sciences are recommended.
