About the Program
In this major you will learn to design, measure, and analyze software-based systems. You’ll receive a strong foundation in computer science with emphasis on the gathering, design, implementation and testing of software requirements. You will also advance your communication and collaboration skills.
This course provides coverage of aspects of modern computing depending on the major chosen. It covers fundamental program mining and theoretical knowledge followed by an opportunity to specialize in one of the three key computing areas: Computer Science, Cyber Security and Software Engineering.
The course teaches C and Java in the first year as the tools for learning core concepts such as objects orientation and algorithms. Linux skills are taught throughout the course, and emphasis is placed on learning the basics before moving onto advanced topics. Graduates from the course will have a high level of knowledge of computer systems and processes involved in software development and maintenance.
