Computer Science

The Computer Science program prepares students to apply basic engineering principles and technical skills to support engineers in developing, implementing, and evaluating computer software and program applications (ADE Software and App Design), as well as, assessing the security needs of computer and network systems, recommending safeguard solutions, and manageing the implementation and maintenance of security devices, systems, and procedures (ADE Network Security).

Throughout the Computer Science program, students learn how to program, programming languages, databases, user interfaces, networking and warehousing, encryption and security, software testing and evaluation, and customization. In the Network Security courses, students will develop skill to analyze, test, troubleshoot, and evaluate existing network systems, such as local area network (LAN), wide area network (WAN), and Internet systems or a segment of a network system. Students develop leadership and community service skills through participation in a career technical student organization (CTSO) SkillsUSA, where they also have the opportunity to compete at a local, state or international level.
