Student at computer

A computer does what it’s told to do. Through hands-on experiences and mathematical applications, students will learn to develop software solutions. These solutions provide the computer with the necessary instructions to function as coded.

The skills learned provide the background needed for students to obtain entry-level programming positions. Through the flexible elective options, students may also align their educational path with a programming degree at a four-year institution.
