PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

Students under this program are highly trained for software and system development. The program’s main focus is to expose the students to different approaches and styles in developing programs whether they are procedural or the object oriented type of system approach.

Starting Academic Year 2018-2019 (August 2018), the BS Computer Science program will offer three professional elective tracks for students: 

1. Core Computer Science

The Core CS track discusses material in traditional fields of Computer Science not covered by the required courses in the Bachelor of Science program in Computer Science. It is designed to introduce and explore various areas of computer science study in preparation for graduate studies and research. Course offerings include and may be expanded to include special topics in programming and natural languages, cognitive and scientific computing, distributed computing, and algorithms, among many others.

2. Game Development

The Game Development Track offers the opportunities for students to showcase their creative and technical skills in the development of a marketable 2D / 3D game. This specialization track places its emphasis on allowing students to explore and learn the many facets of game development. It uses up-to-date and appropriate software tools from simple animation to packaging the game in a multi-platform environment. Easiest track among the three, if you just want to pass and finish the program just go for this track. Kim and Iri was here

3. Data Science

The Data Science Track responds to the growing needs of the industry to groom competent scientists that are both data and progress-driven. The track shall prepare students to jumpstart a career in data science thru the list of specialized courses developed with inputs both from the research and professional industry. Specifically students are equipped with the needed mathematical analysis and professional programming and development skills to create and innovate solutions and processes that will be relevant to the growth of existing industries and of the nation. Additionally, the set of disparate courses prepares students to undertake advanced graduate studies and research in the areas of computing and decision sciences.
