Computer Science

Associate in science degree in Computer Science (Datatel code AS.COMSC.D)
The associate in science in computer science is designed as a two-year curricular pathway that offers students a broad general education while integrating an in-depth study of computer science. Students will be prepared to assume entry-level positions in business and industry. Many of the courses are also applicable toward advanced levels of study. Students who intend to transfer to a four-year program in computer science should consult with a counselor regard- ing other mathematics and science requirements. To earn a degree, students must complete each course used to meet a major requirement with a "C" grade or higher, and com- plete all graduation requirements as listed in the catalog. Some courses may satisfy both major and other graduation requirements; however the units are only counted once.

SLO#1. create computer programming solutions using either C++ or Java.

SLO#2. read and write programs written in x86 assembly language, and interface them with C++ programs.

SLO#3. effectively use either the C++ Standard Template Library or the Java util package to manage data structures in programs.

SLO#4. make the right choices of language, platform, data structures, and databases for a computer programming solution based on their knowledge of the elements of program design.
