Computer Science (Technical)

Curriculum CIS.CST.AS (U230A12)

Students majoring in Computer Science with a Mathematics emphasis need a strong background in Mathematics and computing theory. Bachelor of Science degree graduates will find employment as programmers in scientific and engineering applications, graphics, operating systems or be prepared for graduate education in Computer Science.

Students should note that four-year colleges and universities vary in specific course and transfer requirements. Therefore, it is important that in selecting Triton courses, students should consult a Triton counselor, as well as the catalog and/or admissions advisor at the senior institution to which transfer is intended.

*General education/Social and Behavioral Science courses need to be chosen from two different disciplines. One course from Social/Behavioral Science, Humanities or Fine Arts needs to meet the human diversity requirement. The courses meeting this requirement have an (*) in the general education lists.

This is a generic outline of courses for this program of study. Requirements may vary based on undergraduate major and/or chosen transfer school. Meet with the curriculum counselor for specific transfer school recommendations.
