Computer Science - Web Computing
Web Computing has gained immense attention with the emergence of resources (software, storage, platform, computing, search, etc.) as a service over Internet. This requires a broad range of technologies that can handle front-end and server-side development.
With the extensive background from other complementary Computer Science courses emphasizing computing and programing knowledge, this sequence prepares students to succeed in the field of next-dimension web computing. The Web Computing sequence focuses on the learning and application of web design and development to solve real-world use cases that span various disciplines.
Point of Pride
The School of Information Technology’s mentoring program pairs students with alumni working out in the field. Nearly 80 students participate in the program.
