Studies in computer science range from theory through experimental techniques to engineering methodology. In this program, you will be exposed to the broad theoretical basis of computer science as well as a strong laboratory component designed to help you understand how to apply your education to real world problems. You'll be engaged in projects that investigate each stage of problem solving.
Graduates of our program benefit from a strong conceptual and demonstration based curriculum founded with hands-on laboratory experiences.
This degree's rewards do not come without hard work and dedication. It is scientifically and mathematically intensive in order to produce qualified and talented graduates. The number of students lured by the promise and implied simplicity of the internet and computer games quickly find that they are not prepared for the level of rigor required to be successful.
