  • UG


At least two quarters college-level computer science.

In this program, students will hone their written and oral communication skills as they learn about different areas of Information and Computer Science.  Students will develop a deeper understanding of Information Security issues and important Computer Science concepts, including algorithm complexity and dynamic programming. The individual threads comprising the program are Communication, Information Security seminar, and Topics in Computer Algorithms.

Communication fuses oral and written communication. The students will learn the basics of creating a powerful presentation. The students will also get training in creating written documents such as reports, formal written communications and program documentation. In Information Security seminars, students will give presentations, view related movies, hear talks by outside experts and participate in vigorous discussion of relevant concepts and facts. The Topics inComputer Algorithms thread covers important algorithms and relevant data structures. The students will study important algorithms, design and analysis approaches, and how to choose the most appropriate algorithm for a given problem.  Students successfully mastering these topics will be better prepared for upper-level courses in Computer Science and future employment in computing-related fields.
