Overview

Computer science is all about algorithms: inventing, testing, debugging and improving algorithms that might control a robot’s brain, encrypt a stock trade, even simulate an ecosystem. Our bachelor’s degree, accredited by the Computing Accreditation Commission of ABET, www.abet.org, provides a solid foundation in the basic theories that underpin computer software technology. For those who wish to pursue more advanced studies, our master’s degree program offers convenient late afternoon and evening classes. Our prime Silicon Valley location fosters high-tech employment opportunities for our graduates, who currently make up a significant portion of the area’s programmers, software architects, system analysts and computer scientists.
