Bachelor of Science in Computer Science

Overview

Why Study Computer Science? 

Society is growing more connected and computer-dependent by the day. In 2018, world Internet usage passed the 4 billion mark. According to the US Census Bureau, Internet use in private households quadrupled between 2007 and 2015. As a matter of fact, almost every modern technology, whether directly or indirectly, depends on the applications of computer science.


With computers being such a critical part of today’s society, computer science is a practical choice for aspiring students. A choice that is not only useful but also rewarding—based on a 2017 survey by NACE, computer science and engineering are consistently projected to be the highest paid majors in the US.


As an aspiring computer science student, you may have caught some of the buzz around machine learning and AI, blockchain, the IoT, cloud computing, probability-based algorithms and fuzzy learning, and more. Are you only now hearing about these subjects? Are you already a geek that just has to get the lowdown on the latest trends? Have you heard of Swift, Rust, Elixir? Or are you still asking yourself the fundamental question of Java vs Python?


As a professional developer, you'll be able to do more than just play around with code. You can make use of your problem-solving skills and develop amazing solutions to real-life problems using complex algorithms, in industries ranging from IT, mobile, cybersecurity, games development, healthcare, and even data science. By holding a computer science degree, you enter the workforce as someone who not only speaks the language but can actually write it.

 

The Bachelor of Science in Computer Science accredited online degree program provides students with in-depth knowledge and analytic skills associated with the field of IT and Computer Science.

 

Computer Science at UoPeople

The Bachelor of Science in Computer Science accredited online degree program provides students with in-depth knowledge and analytic skills associated with the field of IT and Computer Science.

Students receive:

 

  • Comprehensive understanding of design, development, testing, and documentation of a range of operating systems
  • Database management; and programming languages
  • Essential knowledge to implementing the skill into real-life situations

 

Students complete an online computer science bachelor degree that opens the doors to a broad career path, with a range of options. Our computer science degree online will also provide the key tools to continue studies at a graduate level.

 

Each student will be connected with a personal Program Advisor at the commencement of their studies, who will remain with them until graduation. The student's personal Program Advisor acts as his/her support system throughout their studies. The personal Program Advisor will be happy to answer any questions the student may have, offer academic advice, discuss course selection, and offer encouragement throughout the student's studies.

 

In our exciting range of courses, you’ll learn about and gain experience with some of the major subjects in computer science today. A few examples are:

 

  • Understanding Java programming, covering fundamentals such as data types, program control and decisions, loops, string manipulations, procedures, arrays, software testing, and debugging; and advanced concepts such as recursion, linked data structures, and Java’s Collection Framework.
  • Exploring computer systems, looking at the internal design and functionality of the most basic computer components, using an online hardware simulator to actually “build” a computer, and developing an assembler from scratch.
  • Catching up on web programming, including web applications, web services, enterprise web development, markup languages, and server-side programming.
  • Building mobile applications 
  • Delving into Artificial Intelligence, covering concepts and techniques in AI, including “reasoning”, problem-solving, and search optimization.
