Computer Science today is way more than the traditional computer job as a business programmer or network administrator. Today, computers are used in almost every aspect of our lives: in car engines, microwave ovens, video games, watches, and telephones.
You can look forward to careers in video game development. Our computer science degree program is designed to prepare you to begin or advance your career in business, industry, government, or education.
As a member of the Computer Science community at A&M-Corpus Christi, you will be a part of a small, tightly-knit group of students whom you'll get to know and work with as you progress through the curriculum. All computer science classes have a maximum enrollment of 30....most classes average about 20 students; small classes give you the opportunity to be a member of a team of students in an environment much like you will find in a business.
The computer science degree program is applied in nature and is designed to prepare students to begin or advance computing careers in business, industry, government, or education, or to pursue further study in computer science. The curriculum is thorough, current, and oriented toward the technical competencies required of a modern computer professional with emphasis on the development, evaluation, and integration of software systems.
The computer science program is committed to preparing students to:
These goals are achieved by offering a curriculum that is thorough, current, and oriented toward the technical competencies required of a modern computing professional with emphasis on the development, evaluation, and integration of software systems.
Based on the mission statements of the university, college, department, and program, we have derived the following objectives for the computer science undergraduate program. The objectives are to graduate students from the baccalaureate program in computer science who:
In order to prepare students to attain the program educational objectives, the BS CS degree program has been structured to ensure that all students, by the time of their graduation, will have been enabled to meet the following outcomes:
The requirements for a Bachelor of Science degree in Computer Science include a total of 120-122 semester hours. The total is divided among the following groups: University Core Curriculum, Major Curriculum, and Electives.
There are four options for the degree, the Systems Programming Option, the Cyber Security and Infrastructure Option, the Computer Game Programming Option, and the Computer Information Systems Option. Besides the University Core Curriculum, all options also share a common major curriculum that consists of 38 semester hours in computer science and mathematics.
