What You'll Study in Our Computer Science Program

With a DCC Computer Science degree, the possibilities are virtually limitless. You'll learn to use computers to solve problems, maintain crucial systems, and develop new ways to improve the world and everyday life with computer technology.

In your first year at DCC, you'll tackle introductory computer science, calculus, and general education courses. For the home stretch of your degree, you’ll dive deep into advanced data structures, computer architecture, and advanced mathematics and science.

At the end of the program, you’ll be prepared for entry-level roles, or to continue your education, in a range of technologies from artificial intelligence and robotics to data analytics and cloud computing.
