Computer Programming

Why Choose the Computer Programming Program?

Technology is an integral part of every person's life, and every business runs on software. Computer Programming is challenging, fun, and can change the world, as students get to see their software start to function properly - whether as a website, game, mobile application, or something else - after all the work they put into it. 

Employers are looking for programmers with logic skills and soft skills as well. Communication is a big part of our job. Writing robust maintainable code, troubleshooting, and teamwork are some of the other traits employers look for. 

If you like technology, solving problems and learning and want a career field that's growing and will be around for a very long time, then this program might be the perfect fit.

This program prepares students for computer information technology positions with concentrations in database or application-systems programming.
