Program Overview

The Computer Science program at WNCC provides a firm foundation for further study in computer science, typically leading to a baccalaureate degree in information technology, computer science, computer engineering, computer information systems, or a related field. . This program acquaints students with the principles and practices of algorithmic design, programming, programming languages, and operating systems. These principles prepare students with practical and theoretical knowledge to apply to the remainder of a baccalaureate degree program.

All courses for this program are offered in person and online using Blackboard Collaborate, an online classroom where students can attend live online or watch recordings on their own schedule. Instructors have current industry experience, current certifications, and attend faculty development training to stay current with changes in information technology. Hands on labs, small class sizes, experienced and certified instructors provide real life learning.

NASA fellowships provide opportunities for programming robotics, drones, remote control aircraft, and other devices. The WNCC Math and Science club, open to all WNCC students, participates in an annual robotics competition.

The computer science program acquaints students with the principles and practices of algorithmic design, programming, programming languages, and operating systems. These principles prepare students with practical and theoretical knowledge to apply to the remainder of a baccalaureate degree program. This program will:

  • Provide coursework for the first two years of a baccalaureate degree in computer science, computer engineering, programming, or information systems.
  • Promote and help students develop lifelong learning skills needed for professional and personal growth.
  • Provide a basis for student understanding of the principles, concepts, and theories that affect computer science, programming, and information systems by offering specific application, programming, and computer information systems courses.

Students can achieve industry-accepted certifications such as CompTIA A+, Network+, Security+, Linux+, and Microsoft Office Specialist. Practice tests and certification exams are available free to qualified students.
