Bachelor of Science in Computer Science
Computer science is associated with the development and analysis of computer software, algorithms, and technologies. Most information, - age technologies -social networking, Web browsing, ecommerce - are the end result of years of work by computer scientists and engineers. The Bachelor of Science in Computer Science program at Lawrence Technological University offers you a sound foundation in computer science complemented by a broad core of courses in the sciences and liberal arts. A background in mathematics enables you to deal with scientific applications as well as the theoretical basis of computer science.
Software development is a major emphasis of the program, and depending on your personal goals, you may choose one of four concentrations: business software development, scientific software development, network software development, or game software development.
A variety of dynamic careers await you as a computer science graduate. With many basic programming and support tasks being shipped overseas, computer science majors can concentrate on the engaging aspects of intelligent systems, autonomous robots, game development, computer security, Web application development, data mining, networks, and virtual environments, just to mention a few. Career opportunities occur in a wide variety of settings, such as large or small software companies, computer services companies, and various other organizations, including industry, government, banking, and health care.
While starting salaries vary widely, computer science graduates are typically well-paid.
The National Association of Colleges and Employers recently reported that the average annual salary for computer science graduates was more than $50,000.
