Advancing Computer Science Course Description

The craft of programming transcends individual programming languages and emphasizes design across multiple scales, from the design of individual programs to complex multi-platform software architectures including mobile platforms, multiple frameworks and multiple design patterns. The Advancing Computer Science (ACS) program balances the science of computing and the art of design, with the application of these principles to real-world problems. Graduates in ACS will be prepared for software development positions where understanding of algorithms and complex software design are important as well as being well-versed in mobile, frameworks, and multiple programming languages and environments.
