Overview

In the Computer Science program, you will gain a strong theoretical and practical foundation in the study of algorithms, programming languages, and construction of computer systems and applications. You will have a solid foundation in the data structure, programming, assembly language programming, computer organization, operating systems, theory, software engineering, algorithms, and computer networking.

In the computer game technology minor, you will apply your foundational programming knowledge to the design and development of video game software. The program focuses on a complete overview of game development, from the initial code to the finished product, with courses covering computer graphics, the games marketplace, game artificial intelligence, and gameplay design.
