Undergraduate Degree Programs
The Department offers a wide range of undergraduate Computer Science and Engineering Technology courses. It offers undergraduate degree programs in Computer Science, Computer Science with a business focus, and Electrical/Electronic Engineering Technology; minor in Computer Science.
Major in Computer Science
The content of this degree program is designed to train students in the theory and application of computer science and the application in a variety of disciplines. Courses are offered in a variety of topics including programming languages, data structures, computer organization and architecture, software engineering, operating systems, and other computer science topics. The Computer Science program is ideal for persons who wish to pursue their careers in government agencies or private corporations or graduate study in computer science-related multi-disciplines.
Major in Computer Science With Business Focus
The content of this program is designed to train students in the theory and application of computer science and its application in business disciplines. Courses include Software Engineering, Operations Research, Computer Organization, Data Structures and Algorithms, Theory of Computation, Programming Languages, Databases and Operating Systems. Courses in accounting and other business areas augment the Computer Science curriculum. This program is designed for persons who wish to pursue careers in information systems, operations research, and database management.
Major in Electrical/Electronic Engineering Technology
The curriculum in Engineering Technology with concentration in Electrical/Electronics (ETEE) follows ABET(ETAC) recommendations for courses leading to a Bachelor of Science Degree in Electrical/Electronics Engineering Technology. The ETEE program gives students “hands on” experiences in using various types of electronic instrumentation used by industry, learn CAD and 3D printing, utilize circuit board milling machines, attend industrial lecture series, field trips, networking events, and various other application-based activities. The coursework of the engineering technology is highly focused around application. Each technical course will have a laboratory component and/or a project. The faculty in the ETEE program are dedicated to give students learning experiences that directly translates to industry. The faculty members of the ETEE program are involved in industry, perform research in the area electronics, and work closely with industry partners to find internships, scholarships, and employment opportunities for students.
