|Undergraduate Catalog 2004-2006: Programs|
Bachelor of Arts
The Computer Science-Electronics program is the ideal major for a student who already has a strong background in electronics technology and wishes to add a knowledge of programming and software systems to that background. To enter this program, students must transfer in at least fifteen semester hours of college level electronics courses, including courses in digital logic and microprocessors. This major is not open to entering freshmen.
The development and maintenance of hardware systems is one of several major divisions within the discipline of computer science. Because of the increasing interest in designing efficient hardware-software systems, a person seeking a career in this area needs to be knowledgeable in both hardware and software. This major prepares students for careers in the technical support areas of research laboratories or research departments of large companies, and as maintenance engineers of computer equipment, and for careers in designing equipment that utilizes microprocessors as sub-units.
Students who take additional communications
and mathematics courses, are especially well prepared to enter the job market.
Prerequisite for entrance to program:
Transfer in at least 15 semester hours of electronics, including courses in digital logic and microprocessors.
