The Computer Science major program is designed to provide students professional preparation in:
1) program applications and analysis
2) systems analysis and management
3) systems architecture and networking.
It also prepares students for graduate work in computer science. Majors must have a “C” or better in all required courses of the major . *A minimum of “B” in MA161a and CS201.
Admission Requirements: All students intending to declare themselves computer science majors must:
Complete CS201 or a similar first-semester programming class, or higher, with a grade of “ B ” or better.
Complete MA161A – College Algebra and Trigonometry Part I, or a higher-level mathematics course, with a grade of “ B ” or better.
Have a cumulative GPA of at least 2.0 prior to entry into the program. Once admitted into the program, new students should see the Computer Science and Mathematics division secretary to be assigned a CS advisor.
BS Computer Science/Computer Information Systems goals include the following:
CS/CIS majors must receive a “C” or better and maintain a 3.0 GPA for all courses required of this major.
CS/CIS PR - 1: (GE) Demonstrate competence with Windows and basic MS Office applications especially MS WORD, EXCEL, and PowerPoint.
CS/CIS PR - 2: Demonstrate technical competence* in Programming: Analyze problems and create algorithm/heuristic solutions. Develop these using computer-programming methodologies in several programming languages.
CS/CIS PR - 3: Demonstrate technical competence in Systems: Identify and analyze system requirements, criteria and specifications. Design and implement human sensitive/compatible computer based systems using appropriate tools, methods and techniques. Effectively manage, organize, and retrieve all forms of information. Evaluate system design solutions and their risks.
CS/CIS PR - 4: Demonstrate technical competence in Databases: Be able to design and implement a functional database
CS/CIS PR - 5: Demonstrate technical competence in Networks: Be able to design, install, administer, and maintain a computer network. Be able to setup, install, and use two different operating systems and be able to program client - server applications for them.
CS/CIS PR - 6 : Develop and ethically utilize these technical skills to construct systems.
*Technical Competence means to be able to design, implement (build/code, test, debug), communicate effectively (in written, oral, and numerical forms), individually, and as part of a team.
