Computer Science Technology – AAS

The Associate in Applied Science in Computer Science Technology at the University of the District of Columbia Community College (UDC-CC) focuses on programming languages. This 2-years associate’s degrees prepare graduates to work directly in the field of computer programming and/or to transfer to a related 4-year degree program. Student is trained in the logic of problem solving, and at the completion of the program is equipped to write computer programs in modern languages such as C++ and Java. Graduates of this program may go on to pursue certification in C++ or Java languages.

On completion of this program, students will be able to:

  • Apply logical skills and mathematical knowledge to analyze the problem, develop, and implement the general solution (algorithm) to the problems in computer science discipline.
  • Articulate oral and written skills necessary to communicate technical information to those outside of computing field.
  • Demonstrate an understanding of professional, ethical, and legal issues as they relate to computer science technology.
  • Identify, formulate, and solve problems related to software engineering.
  • Illustrate knowledge of contemporary and emerging issues in computer science technology.
  • Utilize the techniques, skills, and modern tools of the technical profession.
  • Recognize the importance and the need to identify problem specifications and requirements from the customers.
  • Develop, test, and verify software solutions using different design methodologies and programming languages.
