Computer Science Technology – AAS

The Associate of Applied Science in Computer Science Technology is a 2-year associate’s degree that prepares graduates to work directly in the field of computer programming or to transfer to a related 4-year degree program. Students are trained in the logic of problem solving, and are equipped to write computer programs in modern languages such as C++ and Java. Graduates of the 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.
  • Demonstrate knowledge of contemporary and emerging issues in computer science.
  • Utilize the techniques, skills, and tools of the profession.
  • Recognize the importance of identifying problem specifications and requirements from customers.
  • Develop, test, and verify software solutions using different design methodologies and programming languages.
