Introductory courses expose students to the Racket, C++ and Java programming languages. Programming courses emphasize programming methods rather than features of a specific language. Consequently, our graduates find that they are able to apply good programming principles and quickly learn to use other programming languages as needed.
Students take a two-year sequence of courses focused on the fundamental principles of computing and then expand their view of computing by selecting from a set of upper-level courses focused on a particular area of computing.
