Program Overview

If you want to work in programming or software development, you might as well declare your major right now. Our computer science program will teach you how to create software and design computer systems using advanced computer tools and techniques. You’ll learn how to solve real-world problems through transforming algorithms into modern, high-level languages, such as C# and Java. This creative, exciting, and growing area needs enthusiastic professionals. At CUW, you’ll study “big picture” issues, as well as specialized skills.

What to Expect

This degree provides a classic foundation in computer science and will prepare you for a wide range of careers. You’ll be ready for everything from designing computer games, evaluating “big data” analysis, and working in information assurance. We’ll teach you more than programming; you will learn how computer hardware works, how data communication is carried out, how operating systems function, how database software is structured, and many other “under the hood” aspects of computing systems. You will know how systems actually function in the real world, which will enable you to keep up with—and maybe create—advances in this innovative field.

From your very first course, Foundations of Computer Science, learn about:

  • Robotics
  • Virtual Reality
  • Face Recognition
  • Speech Recognition
  • Strong vs. Weak AI
  • And many other topics
