This program is offered by the Computer Science Department
The Computer Science Honors program prepares students for gainful careers in software engineering and information technology and for post-graduate study. Major course work covers program design, data structures, assembly language programming, digital design, systems programming, and software engineering. Elective courses, including computer security, database design and applications, networking, graphics and visualization, and web-centric computing, ensure students keep pace with rapid advancements in computer technology. This program is accredited by the Computing Accreditation Commission of ABET.
To me the most valuable part of being a CS major at CCSU was opportunity - to ask professors for help during or outside of class; to be challenged by a difficult yet rewarding course list; to meet new students and hear about trending topics through the CS club; to learn about possible careers and then have the chance to interview with employers at the tech career fairs; and even to get to pull an all-nighter doing a Hackathon with your class buddies - i.e. to have fun. These are some of the few opportunities made available by the CS department, and having done all of the above, I would highly encourage anyone interested to seize the opportunity by joining the program.
As a CS student at CCSU, I gained many competitive skills and valuable knowledge in software engineering, such as agile development, web development, etc. Throughout my years at CCSU, I gained a good theoretical background in Computer Science, especially in data structures and algorithms. During my senior year, I received many employment opportunities, and today I am a happy software developer at Optum.
