Computer Science A.S. (CISS)
*This is an overview of the program. The course sequencing is meant to serve as a guideline for your semester planning. Please note that the scheduling of courses, program sequencing and curriculum are subject to change.*
This program is intended for students who wish to transfer to a four-year college or university for a bachelor’s degree in Computer Science or Computer Information Science. This program is compliant with the Pennsylvania statewide program-to-program articulation agreement which ensures that students who complete the requirements as stated below will have their coursework and credits transfer into a parallel baccalaureate program at participating institutions with full junior standing and without the need for course-by-course equivalency.
Upon successful completion of this program, graduates will be able to:
transfer to a four-year college or university for further study.
use technical vocabulary to communicate effectively about currently available computer hardware and software.
demonstrate problem-solving techniques, algorithmic design, and critical thinking.
program in C++ using structured, object-oriented, and visual techniques.
demonstrate college-level mathematical competence.
apply fundamental accounting and/or physics skills.
work effectively with others in a team environment.
Transfer information for this program is on file in the Transfer Center. For more information, contact an academic advisor or counselor.
