Computer science courses are designed to meet the varying goals of students interested in employment or education in the computer field. There are courses on specific languages for professionals who want to supplement their skills with the knowledge of a current programming language (PC assembler, C++, Visual BASIC, Java). A certificate in computer science can be earned by those students desiring to enter the workplace at entry-level positions. Also, an associate degree can be earned by those students desiring to transfer to a four-year institution with a major in Computer Science.

The computer science courses provide instruction in low level and high-level languages, intermediate and advanced techniques in programming, and hardware organization.

Computer Science for Transfer Associate of Science (33379)

The Associate in Science in Computer Science for Transfer degree prepares students to move into a curriculum at a four-year institution leading to a baccalaureate degree. Employment opportunities are available as programmers in government, business, and education. Successful completion of the transfer degree in Computer Science guarantees the student acceptance to the California State University system to pursue a baccalaureate degree in Computer Science or a related field.
