With the meteoric rise of the Internet and proliferation of high-tech gadgetry, computer careers are more interesting and varied than ever before. Our Computer Science program follows the latest ACM Guidelines for the A.S. degree and prepares you for bachelor's degree studies in computer science or software engineering.
What You Will Learn:
Current programming languages and an understanding of the theories behind computer science. Electives in liberal arts and sciences round out your academic experience.
What It Is Like:
Your time will be split between classroom instruction and the computer lab. Textbook learning is complemented by practical experience and shared group projects.
Where It Can Take You:
Transfer to an upper-division institution for continued study in computer science, math, science or scientific and business programming.
It is important that students who plan to transfer after
completing their studies at Onondaga consult from the beginning of their academic
program with an OCC advisor and a contact at the transfer college to make sure
both OCC's degree requirements and transfer requirements are being meet. You
can view current information on transfer
agreements on our Transfer Services page.
