The Computer Science curriculum provides an introduction to the field and facilitates successful transfer to a four-year program. Students learn to construct, verify and implement systems by writing and running programs in standard programming languages. The program also provides a broad background in science and the humanities and integrates principles of mathematics.
Software developers are the creative minds behind computer programs. Some develop the applications that allow people to do specific tasks on a computer or other device. Others develop the underlying systems that run the devices or control networks. Many software developers work for computer systems design and related services firms or software publishers. Others work in computer and electronic product manufacturing industries. Most work full time.
