- Applied Computing, B.Sc.
- Duration : 4 years
The School of Mathematical and Natural Sciences within the New College of Interdisciplinary Arts and Sciences offers a BS degree in applied computing, which provides a foundation in computer science. Applied computing combines technical computing skills with an understanding of the impact of computer science in real-world contexts.
If you have studied computer sciences, you will have gained many technical and non-technical skills which are highly valued by employers, from leadership to programming. The increasing scope of computer science means you have plenty of choice in a wide variety of highly specialized areas. With computer technologies playing an ever growing role in all aspects of modern life, you re likely to find your computer science skills in high demand across many different industries. These include: financial organizations, management consultancy firms, software houses, communications companies, data warehouses, multinational companies (IT-related, financial services and others), governmental agencies, universities and hospitals. However, unsurprisingly, most graduates go into roles within the computer industry.
As always, it's extremely beneficial to have completed relevant work experience. You should also consider compiling a portfolio of your own independent projects outside of your degree, which could be in the form of programming, moderating online or even building an app. This will demonstrate to employers your interest in the subject and your problem-solving skills, creativity and initiative.
The applied computing program's technical component is concerned with the design and use of appropriate systems and technologies, while its social sciences component is concerned with understanding how people seek, obtain, evaluate, use and categorize information. Lower-division courses provide a computer science foundation, while upper-division courses emphasize database systems and computer networks. The program offers small class sizes and extensive opportunities for research, and requires an internship or research with a professor, typically completed during the senior year.
