What will I learn?

We’ve created a first-year experience that provides you with a great foundation in computer science and problem-solving. Regardless of your program of choice, you will develop programming skills, explore the foundations of computer science, and embark on an exploration of the social and philosophical impacts of computing.

In this program, you’ll gain the foundational knowledge to create new and innovative technologies that will shape how we use computers and interact with each other in the future.

Your courses

Expand your knowledge with courses in:

  • Software development
  • Programming Languages
  • Operating systems
  • Cybersecurity
  • Machine learning
  • Graphics
  • AI & Games
  • Algorithms
