PROGRAM HIGHLIGHTS Computer science is the study of algorithms – formal procedures for problem solving that can be implemented mechanically in hardware and linguistically in software.

or graduate study in computing and for thoughtful engagement in the development and application of algorithmic approaches to problem solving.

The mission of the computer science program at D&E is to prepare and inspire students for successful employment

Students studying computer science can choose between a Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Science degree.

WHY MAJOR IN COMPUTER SCIENCE? This is an excellent time to begin studies in computing. Students in computing can take advantage of a great window of opportunity in the computing job market. According to the latest U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics jobs forecast, employment of computer and information technology occupations is projected to grow 12 percent from 2014 to 2024, faster than the average for all occupations. These occupations are expected to add about 488,500 new jobs, from about 3.9 million jobs to about 4.4 million jobs from 2014 to 2024, in part due to a greater emphasis on cloud computing, the collection and storage of big data, more everyday items becoming connected to the Internet in what is commonly referred to as the “Internet of things,” and the continued demand for mobile computing.
