Computer science focuses on understanding the theoretical and practical approaches to computation and its application to problem solving. The theoretical portion prepares students to make decisions about whether and how efficiently problems can be computationally solved. While the practical portion equips students to analyze, design and implement computer systems in hardware and software. Computer Science areas include computer graphics, artificial intelligence, mobile app development, programming, computer architecture fundamentals, operating systems, networking, software engineering, database and data management, as well as the more technical aspects of information security.
Computer Science graduates are in high demand as many employers are looking for highly trained persons to provide technical support for computer operations, and to develop new computer hardware and software systems. Recent graduates are employed by software development companies, large companies, small businesses, governmental agencies, and many more technical environments.
