#Computer Science and Information Technology Degrees

Graduates will be competent professionals, able to

employ a pallet of multiple hardware platforms and software development environments, integrated with the appropriate theoretical constructs, to develop practical solutions to technological problems

deploy those solutions and

provide for their maintenance and administration.

Graduates will be able to effectively integrate research methods, appropriate theory, mathematics, and computational technology to analyze and solve problems encountered in the development of technological solutions.

Graduates will be able to assimilate new methodologies and advances in computer technology in an ever-evolving discipline.

Graduates will be effective in the elicitation of requirements for a software specification, and the written and oral communication of results to technical and non-technical colleagues and clients.

Graduates will be able to work independently and in collaboration with colleagues.

Graduates will be able to integrate the ethical standards of the profession and their professional knowledge and skills to contribute to society.

The Program Educational Objectives are linked to Student Learning Outcomes which have been mapped to each course in the curriculum.

The Scientific Concentration provides a comprehensive computer science foundation that prepares students to design and implement software to solve computing problems. It covers applied topics, but emphasizes theoretical understanding of computer science, including an ability to use advanced mathematics to solve scientific problems and to work closely with other scientists to devise new ways of using computers. This concentration is especially appropriate for students wishing to pursue a graduate degree in computer science, leading ultimately to a career in academic or industrial research.

Bachelor of Science in Information Technology

The Bachelor of Science in Information Technology prepares students with practical, hands-on expertise to solve everyday computing problems. This program is accredited by the Computing Accreditation Commission of ABET, http://www.abet.org. High achieving students can apply for the ACE program (Accelerated Computing Engagement) program which is a pathway to earning the Bachelor’s in Information Technology in three years and includes several perks including a direct opportunity to an internship experience.

The curriculum includes theoretical computer science topics and enough mathematics for graduates to successfully converse with other computing professionals. However, this concentration focuses much more on the the applications of computer science, and as such does not require as many higher mathematics courses as the other concentrations. As part of this applied focus, students in this concentration satisfy an application area component, a series of electives designed to enable a deeper study of one particular computing application. Careers in this concentration focus on developing, supporting, and administrating the computing technology that has become critical to all organizations.
