Why Computer Science? 

The Computer Science and Systems (CSS) program at the School of Engineering & Technology features an innovative and broad approach to computer science and the design of applications software. The CSS curriculum draws heavily on computer science, but with a greater emphasis on software design relevant to the needs of local and regional industry.

You will acquire essential knowledge in object-oriented programming, algorithms and principles of abstraction, data structures, discrete structures, architecture, operating systems, software design and complex ethical and societal issues. The program also offers concentration courses that provide opportunities to specialize.

With increasing demand for highly trained computer scientists, these programs offer a solid foundation in computer science principles along with the software design and development required to effectively apply them.

The CSS program offers both a Bachelor of Arts in Computer Science and Systems and an ABET-accredited Bachelor of Science in Computer Science and Systems. The program admits new students for autumn and winter quarters.
