STEM Degree Programs

Bachelor of Science in Computer Science (BS CSC)

The BS CSC courses emphasize the teaching of theoretical concepts and practical methodologies in computer science. The computer science degree trains students to architect, design, build and write efficient software algorithms to solve problems in languages that are understandable by a computer system. It also uses computer technologies to speed performance, increase results accuracy, data availability and reliability.

Currently, the degree offers three concentrations: database and knowledge-based systems, network and mobile communications and information technology and mobile application development.

 

Bachelor of Science in Mathematics (BS MATH)

The B.S. degree program in mathematics introduces students to a vast body of mathematical knowledge and shows them how mathematics can be used to solve real life problems. Programming, modeling, reasoning and problem-solving skills are therefore emphasized

The program prepares a student for careers in engineering, actuarial science, database and computer systems administration, network and data communication analysis, statistical analysis, secondary mathematics teaching, graduate studies and other fields. In addition to immediate employment, there are opportunities for good students to pursue further study at the graduate level in mathematics, statistics, actuarial science, mathematical finance, engineering, physics and other fields.

 

Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering Technology (BS MET)

The goal of the MET major is to provide students with a well-rounded, fundamental and application-oriented education focused on the knowledge of existing and new developments in the area. Graduates of the bachelor’s degree program will have developed the theoretical and practical knowledge and skills necessary for appropriate careers in local and national industries. To achieve this mission, the MET program is committed to attaining the following goals for all students:

  • Provide a career-oriented program that prepares students for productive employment.
  • Emphasize the latest technological advancements in computer-aided drafting, design, and manufacturing. Students should be able to apply problem-solving techniques and critical thinking skills at the level required for their professional practice.
  • Gain experience in the application of computer software to analyze and design mechanical systems and automated manufacturing systems.
  • Pursue graduate degrees and life-long education.
