Computer Science Program

The CS Mission Statement

The Computer Science (CS) Program is designed to meet the needs of highly motivated students who wish to major in one of the various fields within Computer Science industry.  The program strives to provide college bound students with rigorous learning opportunities in an environment rich in quality of instruction, laboratory facilities, external experiences, and course offerings.

About the CS Program

The CS program includes courses requiring a broad spectrum of skills and abilities including problem solving and logical thinking, object-oriented design, database programming, and digital interaction.  Students discuss social trends, research, and issues related to technology and the computer science industry.  Skills and topics are taught using the Java SQL and other programming languages.
CS upperclassmen expand their technological knowledge skills by using an industry standard design model to fully develop a comprehensive programming project.  Through this project, students learn to set goals and meet deadlines, explore and further develop their programming abilities, work collaboratively with peers, and finally, present their work to a panel of industry professionals who provide the students with guidance and feedback.

CS students have the opportunity to earn Career Technology Education (CTE) certifications in many areas including AutoCAD, MTA Software Development, MTA Database Fundamentals, CIW Database Design Specialist, and CIW Site Development Associate.
