The Computer Science Transfer Program prepares students to transfer to public and private four-year colleges and universities in computer science.
Students study topics in computer science such as problem-solving, object-oriented programming using Java, and computer architecture. Calculus, natural science, social science, and humanities are also studied.
Graduates of the program will be able to:
- Apply problem solving techniques to develop programs of moderate complexity using the object-oriented paradigm and the appropriate data structures.
- Use an assembly language to write programs.
- Explain the architecture of a computer.
- Demonstrate advanced mathematical concepts by programming in the area of calculus & discrete mathematics.
Students must demonstrate Algebra I competency before taking courses in the major. Algebra I competency may be verified with a passing score on the College’s placement test or by completing the appropriate class. Students must also have a grade of “C” or better in high school algebra II, geometry, laboratory chemistry and one additional year of laboratory science.
