HEGIS: 5101

SUNY CODE: 0532

The Computer Science curriculum is designed to prepare students to transfer to a Computer Science or related curriculum at a four-year college.  The curriculum has a strong emphasis on programming theory, object-orientated programming, and data structures utilizing the C++ programming language.  Graduates are prepared to transfer to a four-year school at the full junior status, continue their studies in a more specialized area of Computer Science, and/or develop software using the C++ programming language. 

The goals of this program are to:

  • prepare students to understand basic principles and fundamentals of computer language;
  • prepare students to develop software; and
  • ensure students satisfy SUNY general education requirements for transfer.

Successful graduates from this program will be able to:

  • write software using the C+ programming software;
  • communicate programming theory and design.
